Two decades later, President Joe Biden’s administration led a chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, in which ISIS-K terrorists killed hundreds of people, including 13 U.S. servicemembers, in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport. Biden also left Americans behind and billions of dollars in elite American weaponry, which the Taliban has obtained for its own purposes.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week. The loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded should never have happened,” he said.
Trump shamed Biden for how he handled the end of the war and called his administration “inept.” The former president initially led negotiations with the Taliban during his presidency and agreed to leave Afghanistan and end the 20-year war on May 1 — as long as the Taliban refrained from interacting with terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda, among other agreements.
