This comes as US president, Joe Biden faces huge criticism from home and abroad over the huge political, economical, security and humanitarian crisis that has befallen Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US troops and the takeover of the country by the Taliban.
In the old tweets, some in 2013 before he was president and another in 2020 as sitting president,Trump staunchly supported withdrawal of forces.
The Tweets read;
“Lets get out of Afghanistan. Our troops are bing killed by the afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.”
“We should leave Afghanistan immediately. No more wasted lives.If we have to go back in, we go back hard and quick. Rebuild the US first!”
“Do not allow our very stupid leaders to sign a deal that keeps us in Afghanistan through 2024- with all costs by USA. Make America Great.”
Then as early as October 2020 while he was still in office, he tweeted;
“We should have the small remaining number of our brave men and women serving in Afghanistan home by Christmas”
