On Thursday, former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden and his handling of Afghanistan, including the deadly evacuations of Americans and Afghan allies. He said that he would "never have allowed it to happen."
Trump said during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, "I would never have allowed it to happen," in regards to the chaos surrounding the airport in Kabul.
"We were all set," Trump continued, revealing his own plan to withdraw troops. "We were starting to bring people home, and we take out time. There was no rush."
"We would have left, and when we were gone, they wouldn’t have any weapons," he continued. "They wouldn’t have a nail. They wouldn’t have a screw. They wouldn’t have had any weapons."
The interview apparently occurred before the shocking news broke of two deadly suicide attacks in Kabul.
Trump said he can guess just how the conversation went when the leader of the Taliban, Abdul Ghani Baradar, was told of the U.S. military pullout and massive evacuation.
"Somebody went up to Abdul, who’s the leader of the Taliban … smart, and he’s strong … Somebody went up to him and said 'Leader, they are moving the military out of Afghanistan,'" Trump said.
Trump said after the Taliban moved into Kabul and was met with little resistance — and Americans began leaving — "the word got back to Abdul, and he said 'this is the greatest day of my life. I am going to be a hero. I am going to go down in history as having defeated the Americans without even firing a bullet.'"
Trump said the situation went south in Afghanistan as soon as he left office.
"When I left, that’s when it started, they started going wild, because they were dealing with another president," Trump said. "I watched what happened over the last week and a half with some horrible, stupid decisions that were made — number one being allowing our military to leave before the civilians and before we get all of our equipment back."
"We have a man that doesn’t know what the hell is happening," he added. "I don’t think they know what they’re doing. Yesterday, they said 500 [evacuees left behind]. So the 35,000 all of sudden is 500, and yet most of the people taken on the plane, most of those people, as you know, are Afghans, right? So how are we down to 500? Nobody knows what the number of hostages is. I don’t think the United States has a clue. I think there are thousands of people that are hostage."
It truly boils down to Biden making moves that are not in the best interest of American citizens and troops.

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely.
