Fox News reporter Peter Doocy—who is the only reporter at the White House asking the Biden administration the tough questions—questioned who was behind the decision not to extend the Aug. 31 evacuation deadline from Afghanistan in the latest video from the Daily Caller. It leads one to wonder if Biden is in charge or is it the Taliban. And increasingly it’s looking like the answer is not President Biden.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki answered, “The Taliban’s deadline was May 1, struck in a deal with the prior administration. The president’s timeline was August 31. That’s the timeline he set in a time, in a period of time he needed in order to operationalize our departure from Afghanistan.”
Why does the left continue to blame former President Donald Trump for its problems? Biden has been president for nearly eight months. It’s not Trump’s fault Biden withdrew the military without first evacuating American citizens or letting other nation’s know to evacuate their citizens as well.
It’s not just Afghanistan, either. Inflation? Blame Trump. Gas prices? Blame Trump. Jobs? Blame Trump. The excuse may have worked the first couple of months Biden was in office, but people are no longer buying what he’s selling in the blame game with Afghanistan.
Biden will long be remembered as the president who gave Afghanistan to the Taliban, left American weapons in their possession and left Americans in the nation without proper assistance. It’s a disaster any way you spin it, leaving Americans to wonder if the Taliban or Biden is in charge.
