On Monday, former President Donald Trump released a statement against President Joe Biden after his disastrous Afghanistan withdraw led to the deaths of 13 United States Marines.
“Never in history has a withdrawal from war been handled so badly or incompetently as the Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. In addition to the obvious, ALL EQUIPMENT should be demanded to be immediately returned to the United States and that includes every penny of the $85 billion dollars in cost. If it is not handed back, we should either go in w/unequivocal Military force and get it, or at least bomb the hell out of it. Nobody ever thought such stupidity, as this feeble-brained withdrawal, was possible!” Trump said in a statement on Monday.

Here are some of the military items Joe Biden left behind as addressed by Fox News host Jesse Waters:
- 75,000 war vehicles including Humvees, mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles, and armored personnel carriers.
- 208 airplanes and helicopters — yes, the Taliban captured an air force including 20 A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft and Black Hawk helicopters.
- 600,000 rifles, machine guns, shotguns, and howitzers were transferred to Afghan security forces
Some of the families belonging to the Marines who were killed over the weekend are specifically blaming Biden for their deaths.
The family belonging to 20-year-old son, Rylee McCollum is blaming the death of their son on President Joe Biden after he left thousands of troops in Afghanistan in harms way after his disastrous Afghanistan withdraw.
Rylee’s mom, Kathy McCollum went viral late last week when she told SiriusXM talk show host Andrew Wilkow that she blamed “dementia ridden” Joe Biden for her sons death.
“Twenty years and 6 months old, getting ready to go home from freaking Jordan to be home with his wife to watch the birth of his son, and that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die,” she told Wilkow.
“I woke up at 4 o’clock this morning,” McCollum said. “Two Marines at my door telling me that my son was dead.”
“I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election, or who voted for him legitimately, you just killed my son,” she claimed. “With a dementia-ridden piece of crap who doesn’t even know he’s in the White House, who still thinks he’s a senator.”
According to the Washington Post, the family’s meeting with Biden didn’t go well at all.
“It struck the family as scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes,” reported the post.
The family was so upset with Biden that a few of them actually left the room when it was time to speak with him.
Check out what the Washington Post reported:
One of McCollum’s sisters, Roice, said she and her sister and her father joined McCollum’s wife, Jiennah McCollum, on the trip. But when it came time to meet with the president, they left the room, because she said they did not want to speak with the man they held responsible for McCollum’s death.
Only Jiennah, who is expecting the couple’s child next month, stayed. Buyt she left disapointed, Roice said. The president brought up his son, Beau, according to her account, describing his son’s military service and subsequent death from cancer. It struck the family as scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes in “total disregard to the loss of our Marine,” Roice said.
“You can’t f— up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry,” Roice said of the president. “This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”
The White House declined to comment on the private conversations Biden had with families.
