Donald Trump looks like he wants to run for re-election in 2024.
Trump looks like he is one step closer to making a decision.
And Donald Trump revealed to Sean Hannity this is his secret weapon to come back in 2024.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden for his shameful withdrawal from Afghanistan, calling it the “greatest embarrassment … in the history of our country.”
“The people come out first, then I was going to take all of the military equipment,” Trump told Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“We have billions and billions of dollars’ worth of new Black Hawk helicopters, brand new that Russia will now be examining, and so will China, and so will everybody else to figure it because it’s the greatest in the world. We have brand-new army tanks and all sorts of equipment, missiles, we have everything,” Trump continued.
The former president said “it’s a great thing” to be leaving Afghanistan “but nobody has ever handled a withdrawal worse than Joe Biden. This is the greatest embarrassment I believe in the history of our country.”
Trump said that he hadn’t planned to leave equipment behind because he wasn’t confident that the Afghanistan army would keep fighting when America left.
In particular, Trump blamed Biden for not getting out all American citizens before removing all the troops.
“I’m America-first, okay. The Americans come out first, but we’re also, we will help people who helped us,” the former president said, noting that Afghan allies had to be vetted because “there’s some rough people” to consider.
Trump said that the military forces should have been the last to leave.
The Taliban has gained billions in military equipment, paid for by American taxpayers.
“Officials estimated the Taliban, which controls the vast majority of the war-torn Middle Eastern nation, is in possession of 2,000 armored vehicles and up to 40 aircraft, including Black Hawks and pricey ScanEagle drones, according to Reuters. Since 2003, the U.S. has given more than 600,000 infantry weapons like rifles, 162,000 pieces of communications equipment and 16,000 night-vision goggles to the Afghan security forces.” The Daily Caller reported.
The way that Biden left Afghanistan couldn’t have worked out better for America’s enemies.
“The Biden-Harris administration has failed to provide an accounting of U.S. equipment now in the hands of the Taliban,” House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Mike Rogers said in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday.
Republicans are planning to introduce legislation requiring the Biden administration to provide details on the weapons that have fallen into the Taliban’s hands.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley said Wednesday that he “preferred not to discuss” operations related to the seized equipment.
