Biden Blames President Trump for Afghanistan Failure Despite Calling Taliban Takeover “Unlikely” Last Month


What does the Biden Administration do when its policies result in a Taliban takeover in Afghanistan and completely destroying the trust of the American people?

Simple, they just blame President Donald Trump.

That’s exactly what Joe Biden is resorting to after he ordered the withdrawl of US forces in Afghanistan.

As the Taliban quickly sweep across Afghanistan, Biden is realizing his mistake.

However, rather than own up to it, he’s instead blaming President Trump.

Biden had this to say in a statement:

“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor — which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019 — that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on U.S. Forces.”

Biden then claimed that he faced an impossible choice on whether to follow up on the alleged deal, or to send more US troops into Afghanistan.

Foreign policy experts, including former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, slammed Biden for attempting to shift blame to President Trump.

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more on Joe Biden's refusal to take responsibility for his own failures:

Democrat President Joe Biden, facing pressure and widespread backlash over his decisions regarding Afghanistan, announced on Saturday that he will be sending at least an additional 1,000 troops into the middle eastern nation. The troops are being deployed to assist with evacuation efforts as the Taliban has seized on the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal and now control the majority of the country.

Biden said in a statement:

First, based on the recommendations of our diplomatic, military, and intelligence teams, I have authorized the deployment of approximately 5,000 U.S. troops to make sure we can have an orderly and safe drawdown of U.S. personnel and other allied personnel, and an orderly and safe evacuation of Afghans who helped our troops during our mission and those at special risk from the Taliban advance.

Second, I have ordered our Armed Forces and our Intelligence Community to ensure that we will maintain the capability and the vigilance to address future terrorist threats from Afghanistan.

Biden then tried to blame former President Donald Trump for the actions that his administration has made that have seriously backfired in the Middle East.

“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor — which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019 — that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on U.S. Forces,” Biden said. “Shortly before he left office, he also drew U.S. Forces down to a bare minimum of 2,500. Therefore, when I became President, I faced a choice — follow through on the deal, with a brief extension to get our Forces and our allies’ Forces out safely, or ramp up our presence and send more American troops to fight once again in another country’s civil conflict.”

However, foreign policy experts quickly slammed Biden’s attempts to blame Trump for the situation that is unfolding under Biden’s leadership. Mike Pompeo, the former director of the CIA and secretary of state, said in an interview last week that Trump’s plan to withdraw from Afghanistan appeared to be very different than what Biden was doing. Pompeo noted that Trump told the Taliban that if there were any problems, the U.S. Military would be going directly to their homes to hunt them down.

Biden Faces Tough Questions After Afghanistan Withdrawl

Biden's stance on Afghanistan today is vastly different than it was just a month ago.

Breitbart has more:

But Biden set a later date for withdrawal, choosing a new deadline of September 11th before walking it back to August 31.

“I was the fourth President to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan—two Republicans, two Democrats,” he said. “I would not, and will not, pass this war onto a fifth.”

On Saturday, Biden announced his decision to surge 5,000 American troops into Afghanistan to help ensure the safe evacuation of American personal.

Despite the president blaming his predecessor, Biden signaled he was disillusioned by the Afghanistan conflict:

One more year, or five more years, of U.S. military presence, would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country. An endless American presence in the middle of another country’s civil conflict was not acceptable to me.

Biden’s remarks were sharply different from his tone just a month ago when he indicated the Taliban takeover of the country was not inevitable.

“So the question now is, where do they go from here?” Biden said in July about the Taliban’s failure to negotiate a deal with the Afghan government. “The jury is still out. But the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”

Biden has failed the American people.

Now that he faces intense pressure as the Taliban make advances in Afghanistan.
