President Trump called Joe Biden the worst leader in the history of the U.S. and blamed him for the embarrassing failure in Afghanistan when he left $85 billion worth of military equipment with the Taliban.
During an interview at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort on Saturday, Trump voiced many concerns and issues surrounding the leadership of the Biden administration. He accused Biden for the mishandling of the border crisis, runaway inflation and lingering COVID fears under the leadership he deemed as “a failed administration.”
“I think you have to say an F and not an F+. It would be an F. It’s a failed administration. It’s a disaster. I’ve never seen anything like it and by the way, I wish he’d do well,” said Trump. “You know, I love the country more than I love anything. Family, God, country, you know we have to take care of our country. I would love to see him do well. I don’t think there has ever been a greater embarrassment as an administration, and we had everything ready to go. It was…we handed him on a plate whether it was the border or Afghanistan, we were getting out, but we were going to get out with great dignity and strength.”
The 45th president went on to say how he lost respect for Gen. Mark Milley for agreeing with Biden and saying it would be cheaper to leave the military equipment in the hands of the Taliban instead of bringing it back to the U.S.
Although he hasn’t officially announced if he would be running in the next election, Trump stressed he could solve a lot of the problems created by Democrats and pointed out Biden isn’t capable of handling gas prices and broader energy issues. He claimed he could get the price of gasoline down within six months.
Trump further said Biden has destroyed U.S. energy independence and betrayed America’s national interests on many fronts. Meanwhile, amid the countless number of issues the country is facing, the 45th president hopes the current administration can start making smarter decisions moving forward.
