“This tragedy should never have taken place. It should never have happened,” Trump said, “and it would not have happened if I were your president.”
Hannity pointed to Biden’s “incoherent, bizarre, mumbling” news conference earlier Thursday, aruging that the president “presented no plan of action whatsoever, no strategy, no change in strategy, no extra military support” as the Taliban deadline set for next Tuesday draws near.
“He acknowledged Americans, our fellow citizens, our friends, and our neighbors will be left behind enemy lines, hostages to the whims of terrorists,” Hannity said, calling the evacuation “an unconscionable disaster, one of the biggest foreign policy debacles ever in American history.”
