The blow is gone, without even respecting the solemnity of the moment. Former Republican President Donald Trump on Saturday denounced “incompetence ” of Joe Biden, whose management of the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan has “pretended to be an idiot “, in a video message recorded for the twentieth anniversary of 9/11.
After paying homage to the “courage” firefighters, police officers or rescuers intervened that day, Donald Trump severely criticized the action of his Democratic successor in the White House and the end of America’s longest war, unleashed after the Al-Qaeda attacks September 11, 2001 which left nearly 3,000 dead.
“It is also a sad moment for the way our war against those who have done so much harm to our country ended last week”, did he declare. “The ruler of our country has sounded like an idiot.” “We will have a hard time recovering from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused“, continued the billionaire in his video.
Regretting the death of 13 soldiers, killed in an attack near Kabul airport in August, Donald Trump denounced the seizure by the Taliban of American military equipment “without a single shot being fired”. “Joe Biden and his incompetent administration have capitulated”, he said.
The Democratic president has been weakened by the chaotic end of the war in Afghanistan, where the Taliban regained power in August. Donald Trump, who is not participating in any of the official commemorations, will comment on a boxing match between former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and Brazilian mixed martial arts star Vitor Belfort on Saturday night.
