Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan military withdrawal as “the single most embarrassing moment in the history of our country” during an interview on Fox News’ Life, Liberty & Levin on Sunday.
“I think it’s the most embarrassing and humiliating period in the history of our country,” Trump told host Mark Levin, according to Fox News.
“I was all set up to withdraw with dignity and tremendous strength,” the former president added. “Nobody was going to be killed. We weren’t leaving $85 billion behind; we weren’t leaving 10 cents behind. I said, ‘Every bolt, every screw, every nail comes out.’”
Trump also brought up the 13 soldiers killed at the Kabul airport and remarked that “nobody” talks about the loss of life there. He didn’t think “there’s ever been anything so terrible,” he said, as Fox reported.
Then there’s inflation and the border
Trump also criticized the current president for high gas prices and inflation, which he said were “eating our people alive.”
The border situation is also out of control, he said. “Nobody’s had borders like this,” even in “the most remote places in the world,” Trump insisted, according to Fox.
“Millions and millions of people…just coming in here unchecked,” he added, claiming that “countries are emptying out their jails into the United States…like a dumping ground.”
President Biden reversed the majority of Trump’s policies on his first day in office, which many argue has resulted in huge spikes in illegal border crossings, including caravans of thousands that have converged on the border.
Trumpeting his presidency
Trump also used part of his Sunday interview to wax nostalgic about his presidency, which ended 10 months ago.
According to Fox, he called his time in office “a beautiful period of time…made more beautiful by the catastrophic events that have taken place over the last 10 months.”
Trump was on the program to promote his new book, Our Journey Together, which is a coffee table-type book about his presidency.
Trump did mention that he didn’t think the events of the last 10 months should have ever happened, which was a reference to his contention that he would have won the election if not for fraud that he has been trying to prove for the better part of a year.
