President Trump told a massive crowd in Des Moines, Iowa what is really happening to the U.S. helicopters that were left in Afghanistan.
Trump told his supporters that both Russia and China are now re-engineering U.S. military helicopters after the Pentagon and the Biden administration decided to leave them there.
He went on to say, before long Russia and China will be able to replicate most of our military equipment and be able to put it to use against us in the near future.

Big News Network had more on the story:
US President Donald Trump has said US military equipment left behind in Afghanistan was not disabled and will now benefit other powers, including Russia and China.
“Russia and China already have samples of our great helicopters. We have the Apache helicopters … and they are now re-engineering the equipment, they are de-engineering. They are taking it apart, they are figuring it out and very soon they’ll be building the best stuff for less money,” Sputnik quoted Trump as saying at the “Save America” rally in Des Moines on Saturday.
Trump alleged that only three per cent of all people who were taken out of Afghanistan on US evacuation flights were qualified to be taken to the United States.
“They had no idea who was getting on those planes,” Trump said.
