In a show of presidential strength, against President Joe Biden’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal, former President Donald Trump delivered pointed remarks at a packed Save America rally in Cullman, Alabama, on Saturday night.

“I warned the entire country of the disastrous consequences of a Biden presidency,” Trump said. “I understood; a lot of you understood it. I said Joe Biden would eliminate America’s borders in the middle of a pandemic. He did.

“I predicted that he would unleash a wave of violent crime that would turn our cities into a nightmare of killing and bloodshed.”

It was Trump’s fourth post-presidential rally and was billed to be the biggest one yet, particularly with national security questions rising amid the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

“Biden failed totally on the pandemic, and he’s now overseeing the greatest foreign policy humiliation in the history of the United States of America,” Trump said. “This is the greatest humiliation I’ve ever seen.

“Biden’s botched exit in Afghanistan is the most astonishing display of gross incompetence by a nation’s leader – perhaps at any time that anybody’s ever seen.

“Name another situation like this. Vietnam looks like a master class in strategy compared to Joe Biden’s catastrophe.”

Trump ripped Biden’s avoidance of media, not taking questions, and permitting the Taliban to quickly takeover Afghanistan.

“Joe Biden was going on vacation as Afghanistan was going to hell,” he continued. “This is what you get when you have weakness in the White House. You can’t have weakness in the White House.

“They have to respect your president. When I was president, we only had strength.”

Trump said this “would have never have happened” if he was still president, saying the Taliban respected American military “strength.”

“They knew we weren’t playing games,” Trump said. “They understood that right from the beginning. This proven record of America’s strength laid the groundwork to safely and responsibly bring our troops back home. Nobody was going to mess with us.

“And then this clown,” Trump continued, referring to Biden. “They rigged the whole deal.

“Now they’re taking advantage of us. And remember this: This isn’t stopping, this going to go on for a long time. This isn’t going away.”

Trump lamented the leaving behind of American citizens and allies, leaving the billions of dollars of American military equipment with the surrendering Afghanistan military, which declined to defend its country against the Taliban.

“When Biden took office, he foolishly tore up our really good plan,” Trump said. “It’s conditions. We do this. We do this. We do this. If you don’t do these things were not going to do it, and then we start dropping bombs all over the place.

“And they say, ‘you know what? We’re going to do it; we’ve decided to do it.’ We had a good understanding.”

Trump played a video of Gen. George Patton’s patriotic address to World War II troops before taking the stage, adding rips of failed generals and the White House Joints Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley.

“Let me ask you: Do you think that Gen. Patton was woke? I don’t think so,” Trump said to loud cheers. “I don’t think he was too woke. He was the exact opposite.

“You know what woke means? It means you’re a loser. Everything woke turns to sh**. It’s true.”

The off-the-cuff former president struck a cord with the Alabama crowd.

“This is Trump-stock in Cullman,” Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., told the crowd before Trump came on.

Also, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., a Trump-supporter, was a prominent guest in his 2022 midterm campaign to sit alongside Tuberville in the Senate.

“I never felt more fear for the future of our country,” Brooks said in his introduction to Trump. “America is under attack.”

Trump threw his support behind Brooks.

“We did have a rigged election, which is terrible, terrible, and you look at what’s going on now,” Trump said. “You look at what’s going on now and the border, but take a look at Afghanistan, what’s happening

“But I’m with Alabama’s proud, hard-working, incredible American patriots with your help we’re going to elect our friend Mo Brooks to the U.S. Senate.”

Brooks was active in Congress in calling for a review of the certification of Biden’s Electoral College votes Jan. 6.

“Here tonight is someone who has fought harder than anyone else in Congress to expose the election fraud,” Trump said. “He is really a fighter, and to defend the integrity of our elections. And I have to say it, I just can’t imagine him losing.

“He’s got courage. He’s an honest guy. He’s an honest guy, and that gives them the courage. Your next U.S. senator from Alabama Mo Brooks.”

Trump vowed to stand for law and order, and patriotic conservative ideals.

“In the Republican Party we believe our country should be a sanctuary for law-abiding Americans, not for criminal aliens,” he said.

“This is a sick culture and our country is a disaster and it’s going to die before your very eyes if this craziness isn’t stopped in so many ways.”

“We’re seeing what happens when you have dishonest and rigged elections. This is what happens. This is what you get. Our nation is being destroyed from within by people who have no right to destroy it. No right. They have no right to destroy it.”

White House to send more than $300 million in aid to Afghanistan despite Taliban control

Published

on

The White House announced plans Tuesday to send more than $308 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan as millions face starvation under the new Taliban government following President Joe Biden’s withdrawal.

The assistance would be given by the United States Agency for International Development through “independent humanitarian organizations” to the Afghan people, National Security Council spokesperson Emily Horne said.

The administration has been criticized for sending aid to Afghanistan previously. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) warned that it would be “foolish” and asserted that the Taliban “would take the money.” 

“This brings total U.S. humanitarian aid in Afghanistan and for Afghan refugees in the region to nearly $782 million since October 2021, and we remain the single largest donor of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan,” Horne said, adding that the U.S. has also given 4.3 million COVID-19 doses to the Afghan people.

Assistance will “help provide lifesaving protection and shelter, essential health care, winterization assistance, emergency food aid, water, sanitation, and hygiene services in response to the growing humanitarian needs exacerbated by COVID-19 and healthcare shortages, drought, malnutrition, and the winter season,” Horne said.

China sent assistance to Afghanistan last month to help the nation prepare for winter and build ties between the Chinese Communist Party and the new jihadist government. 

“The United States is committed to supporting the Afghan people and we continue to consider all options available to us,” Horne concluded. “We stand with the people of Afghanistan.”
