“While Biden continues to point the finger at Trump for negotiating with the Taliban, the former president said the agreement his administration orchestrated was clear about consequences.
“We had a very strong agreement. It was conditions-based. Now there were many other parts of the agreement also. And if they violated them, you know that, we went in and bombed the hell out of them, and they never would. They never would have come into Kabul. And they just wouldn’t do it,” Trump said on the Hugh Hewitt Show. “Now what happened is one day, Biden said take the soldiers out. And it went back to the leaders of the Taliban, to the whole group of them, that the soldiers are leaving. And I would say that they were shocked, okay? I am surmising that they were shocked, because we had that thing so tight.”
He also noted that “we would not have stood for any soldiers or any Americans being killed or shot at or hurt in any way.”
“That was in there. And Hugh, for 18 months, not one American soldier was killed. Not one. Eighteen months. And that was because of the agreement, and because of my talk with Abdul, who is now the boss, as you know, He is now the boss,” Trump said. …”
As we saw yesterday, Blumpf had no intention of getting out of Afghanistan. It was just another one of his countless lies. The peace deal that he negotiated with the Taliban was “conditions based” and a “play” to force Afghan President Ashraf Ghani into a power sharing agreement with the Taliban. The goal was to keep troops indefinitely at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan. He admitted it last night in an interview with Sean Hannity. It was also a “play” to convince swing voters that a vote for Trump was a vote against “endless war” in the 2020 election. The man is a con artist.
Note: In the name of “rebuilding our military,” defense contractors had their best year ever in Afghanistan under the Trump administration.
