Donald Trump is not taking kindly to the finger pointing and blame games Biden is playing after his disastrous attempt to remove troops from Afghanistan.
As a result of Biden’s orders, the entire country of Afghanistan collapsed, falling to the Taliban in record time — a move many predicted. As commander in chief, Trump brokered a peace deal with the radical Islamic group to ensure a safe return of U.S. troops, and unfortunately Biden was unable to deliver.
The Former President followed President Joe Biden’s speech on the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan with a brief message on Monday, criticizing the U.S. military withdrawal from the country.

The United States has deployed roughly 7,000 troops , including multiple Marine battalions and the Army’s 82nd Airborne, to facilitate the hasty exit of embassy diplomats and others as the Taliban conquered Kabul, leaving residents scrambling to flee the embattled nation.
Biden returned to the White House, after spending the weekend at Camp David, to deliver an address to the nation about Afghanistan, saying he stands “squarely behind” his decision to end the U.S. war-fighting mission in the country ahead of a deadline of Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
During his address, Biden relied on a collective amnesia of every American alive during his tenure as Vice President. He proceeded to deny the decision to create and import American democracy in Afghanistan, a move no one believed in besides Democrats and RINO warmongers. Joe threw his former boss, Barack Obama, under the bus by distancing himself from the foreign policy decision made during their tenure in the White House.

Biden proceeded to double down on his decision to hastily pull troops in that manner, causing upheaval in Afghanistan and an eventual Taliban takeover:

Biden was met with some criticism — from Fake News! — for how he deflected blame despite the withdrawal, which was set in motion by the Trump administration, and the Taliban takeover taking place under his watch as president.
