Former President Donald Trump released a scathing video that highlighted the failure of the Biden administration in Afghanistan on Tuesday, offering himself as the way for America to save itself.
The video, described by Breitbart News as a “brutal ad bashing President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan” painted a dire picture of what the United States’ current foreign policy was doing to the nation and the world.
The video was posted by a Trump office communications officer, Taylor Budowich who called it the “Surrenderer-in-Chief” video:
“… the ad relays President Biden’s ‘America is back’ speech amid a montage of footage showing the chaos in Afghanistan and the chaos here at home,” Breitbart reported:

The shambles of American foreign policy was also reported on by Reuters who commented that the Taliban-imposed August 31 deadline lead to Biden’s commitment to have all American troops out by that date.
House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that it’s “very unlikely” that the full evacuation of Americans will happen by the deadline, which could leave refugees currently stranded in the region.
“I think it’s possible, but I think it’s very unlikely. Given the number of Americans who still need to be evacuated, the number of SIVs, the number of others who are members of the Afghan press, civil society leaders, women leaders. It’s hard for me to imagine all of that can be accomplished between now and the end of the month,” Schiff said.
Officials from the Department of Defense confirmed to Breitbart News on Tuesday that the withdrawal of U.S. troops has already begun in Afghanistan and will be completed by August 31.
