Former Vice President Mike Pence has been measuring his attacks since leaving office.
However, when he throws a punch, he makes sure it is a haymaker.
This week, Pence landed a solid right against Biden during an interview with Brian Kilmeade, calling the Afghanistan troop withdrawal a “foreign policy humiliation.”
It was not surprising to hear Pence speak up with the narrative Democrats are trying to pitch these days.
Biden and company have been trying to sell the idea that this debacle is actually Donald Trump’s fault, but Biden’s plan created this mess.
Pence stated, “I was in Washington, DC, on September 11, and the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, it’s a foreign policy humiliation unlike anything our country has endured since the Iran hostage crisis.
“What you’re seeing in the Biden administration I think is just an effort to shift the conversation and shift the blame from just an unspeakably poor effort to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.
“We all want our troops to come home but not like that … What the Biden administration has done in this case by arbitrarily announcing that they were going to bring troop levels to zero by September 11 … irrespective of the situation on the ground, set this disaster in motion.”
When Pence was asked how things would have been different had he and Trump still been in office, Pence stated, “I have no doubt whatsoever that you would not have seen the Taliban march into Mazar-i-Sharif without consequence.
“You would not have seen the Taliban march into Kabul.”
Trump was adamant in real-time that he did not want to go back into Afghanistan, but if the Taliban broke the agreement, he would go back swiftly and forcefully.
I think it is safe to say that the Taliban rolling through Afghanistan like a hot knife through butter would have constituted a violation of Trump’s terms.
