Former President Donald Trump continued to unleash harsh criticism of Joe Biden on Monday, as he wondered: “Who or what will Joe Biden surrender to next? Someone should ask him, if they can find him.”
Over the weekend, Trump called for Biden to resign over the Democrat’s creation in Afghanistan of an all-new American Saigon – that horrific episode when the United States abandoned South Vietnam and helicopters hovered over buildings trying to evacuate those who soon could be executed by the invading communists.
That situation developed because of Biden’s decision to pull troops out of Afghanistan, which has been unstable and unable to run itself for decades.
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” Trump said.
“It shouldn’t be a big deal, because he wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place.”
On Monday, Trump issued a fresh statement, saying: “First Joe Biden surrendered to COVID and it has come roaring back. Then he surrendered to the Taliban, who has quickly overtaken Afghanistan and destroyed confidence in American power and influence. The outcome in Afghanistan, including the withdrawal, would have been totally different if the Trump Administration had been in charge. Who or what will Joe Biden surrender to next? Someone should ask him, if they can find him.”
While the opinions from Trump, who has yet to announce whether he will seek another term in office in 2024, is expected, there was a flood of additional criticism of Biden that hasn’t been seen before now.
The far-left CNN network openly wondered where was President Biden, who reportedly was considering breaking into his “vacation” to offer a statement to the nation in light of the catastrophe.
Fox News reported world leaders have had it with the inept results of Biden’s foreign appeasement policy.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was “fair to say the U.S. decision to pull out has accelerated things, but this has in many ways been a chronicle of an event foretold.”
He warned Afghanistan, now under the control of the Taliban, could become a “breeding ground” for terror.
“I think it is very important that the West should work collectively to get over to that new government – be it by the Taliban or anybody else – that nobody wants Afghanistan once again to be a breeding ground for terror and we don’t think it is in the interests of the people of Afghanistan that it should lapse back into that pre-2001 status,” he said.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was “heartbroken” by the results of Biden’s foreign policy agenda.
“We’ve been constantly monitoring the rapidly evolving situation,” he said in the report. “We are heartbroken at the situation the Afghan people find themselves in today.”
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he was concerned about those who need to be evacuated.
“Our focus now is to ensure that we continue to support those who have aided us and ensuring that 400 people have already been brought to Australia as we have been working on this quite rapidly in recent months as the situation continues to deteriorate,” Morrison said. “We will continue to redouble our effort in that regard with our partners.”
Rep. Mark Green, R-Tenn., told The Star News Network, “President Biden has proven his incompetence and inability to keep the American people safe.”
Biden had assured questioners only weeks ago that the Taliban would not be able to take over Afghanistan, as the terror group has very quickly.
NBC reported that even, “Democrats on Capitol Hill and former Obama administration officials joined Republicans in publicly criticizing Biden’s handling of the situation. While most agreed with the decision to remove troops, they attacked Biden’s failure to get the thousands of Afghans who assisted U.S. forces out of the country before the Taliban took over and the scramble to evacuate Americans from the country.”
California Democrat Jackie Speier said it simply was “a crisis of untold proportion.”
The report explained, “The White House’s actions over the weekend demonstrated just how off-guard officials were caught by the pace of the Taliban’s ascent. Over the past 72 hours, the number of military personnel on the ground has grown, with 6,000 troops ultimately expected there in the coming days. The U.S. embassy, which the State Department had insisted Thursday would remain open, had been fully evacuated by Sunday evening.”
Jon Finer, deputy national security adviser, said, “If you’re asking has the situation deteriorated in Afghanistan faster than was anticipated and expected not just by us, by the way, but broadly? I think the answer to that question is undeniably yes.”
NBC said former CIA director David Petraeus, who worked in the Barack Obama administration, called the Afghanistan results of Biden’s moves “catastrophic.”
Rep. Debbie Dingell, a Democrat from Michigan, was among those who likened the Afghanistan disaster to the fall of Saigon, where Americans were rescued by helicopter off the embassy rooftop in 1975.
“It does feel like the fall of Saigon today, I’m not going to lie,” Dingell said Sunday.
The BBC said Biden, while running for office, said the U.S. should have troops in Afghanistan only “to make sure that it’s impossible for the Taliban and for ISIS or al-Qaida to re-established a foothold there.”
“That has not come to pass,” the report explained, after the Taliban took over the Afghanistan president’s office and announced a new officeholder.
The report noted Biden “was forced on Saturday” to authorize a return of American troops to evacuate Americans from the troubled nation.
The Biden administration had been warned that Afghanistan would fall to the radicals within 90 days of U.S. troop departures.
“To his critics, the president’s decision to wind down America’s longest conflict has undone 20 years of work and sacrifice, paved the way for a humanitarian catastrophe and called into question U.S. credibility,” BBC speculated.
