Democrat President Joe Biden, facing pressure and widespread backlash over his decisions regarding Afghanistan, announced on Saturday that he will be sending at least an additional 1,000 troops into the middle eastern nation. The troops are being deployed to assist with evacuation efforts as the Taliban has seized on the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal and now control the majority of the country. Biden then tried to blame former President Donald Trump for the actions that his administration has made that have seriously backfired in the Middle East. “When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor — which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019 — that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on U.S. Forces,” Biden said. However, foreign policy experts quickly slammed Biden’s attempts to blame Trump for the situation that is unfolding under Biden’s leadership. Mike Pompeo, the former director of the CIA and secretary of state, said in an interview last week that Trump’s plan to withdraw from Afghanistan appeared to be very different than what Biden was doing.
