Former US President Donald Trump believes the US military should be ready to return to Afghanistan. He announced this on Sunday, August 22, at a rally of his supporters in Alabama.
“We have to come in, we have to do it when it’s right. And now we may be forced to enter because this man who runs our country has made a terrible decision to withdraw our entire powerful army. We may be forced to enter , ”said the former head of the White House. The rally was broadcast by the TV channel CBS42…
Trump also pointed out that there are significantly more American citizens in Afghanistan than the current US President Joe Biden says.
In addition, according to Trump, in Afghanistan there is not a withdrawal of American troops, but a surrender. He believes that the United States Army “is being handed over to the enemy.” The former president pointed out that the current administration left behind $ 83 billion worth of equipment, equipped military bases and an expensive embassy building in Afghanistan.
The politician also commented on the flight of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. Trump called him a scam who flew out of the country “with a lot of money.”
At the same time, the ex-president believes that Russia is “again entering” Afghanistan. He added that he had heard that the Russian side was returning.
Trump has previously criticized the current US administration for the situation in Afghanistan. So, on August 20, he said that Biden’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan was “the greatest strategic mistake.”
On August 18, Trump said that about 40 thousand Americans who are going to leave Afghanistan could be held hostage by the Taliban (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation). He also said that he considers the operation to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan the biggest humiliation for the United States.
On August 15, the Taliban entered Kabul, after which they declared the “end of the war” in Afghanistan. They intend to announce the creation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, and also demanded the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country. In turn, President Ashraf Ghani resigned and left the country.
The situation in Afghanistan aggravated against the backdrop of the withdrawal of the US military, who had been in the country for 20 years. During this time, it was not possible to achieve stable peace in the region and the establishment of the political situation in the country. The withdrawal of troops began in early May; it is planned to complete it by the end of August.
