“We could come out with pride, saving lives,” Trump said in an interview with One America News Network.
Trump called the members of the current U.S. administration “idiots.” According to him, they are responsible for the fact that the list of Americans remaining in Afghanistan was handed over to the Taliban.
“No one respects us anymore, even from those who respected us before. Fools lead us,” Trump said.
On Tuesday night, the Pentagon announced the completion of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and the end of the 20-year mission. The airport in Kabul, from where the evacuation of foreigners and allies was carried out, came under the full control of the Taliban movement.
