Earlier on Tuesday, Trump had accused US President Joe Biden of surrendering Afghanistan to terrorists by pulling our military before US citizens.

Former US President Donald Trump has sharpened his attack against his successor over the latter's domestic as well as foreign policy, especially with Afghanistan. Trump said in a statement that President Joe Biden has left thousands of Americans at the “whim of Islamic extremists”, calling it the “single greatest humiliation” in the history of the US in Afghanistan.

The former commander-in-chief said that Biden's policies have created a “living national nightmare” by sabotaging the economy, caving to China, and leaving the US borders wide-open to “deadly drugs, vicious crime, and unlimited illegal immigration at home.”
