While Joe Biden and his team of ‘woke’ Generals project weakness and defeat following the devastating evacuation in Afghanistan, Donald Trump remains a glimmer of strength still left amongst political leaders today.
In addition to the American lives lost during the withdrawal process, millions of dollars in U.S. military equipment have been left behind as well.
Former President Donald Trump has a plan to seize those military assets.
Trump called on the “commander in chief” Biden to get “every penny” of U.S. equipment out of the region or “bomb the hell” out of the country, a show of force unheard of amongst Biden’s genteel Washington elite.
Trump, who has repeatedly ridiculed President Joe Biden ‘s handling of the military’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, criticized reports of U.S. military equipment being seized by the Taliban — including tanks, trucks, weapons, and other gear left behind by U.S. forces.
He released a statement urging the Biden administration to act fast.

As the U.S. is poised to meet the Tuesday troop withdrawal deadline and slow its evacuation efforts, it appears that the military plans to leave behind hundreds of thousands of pieces of military equipment in Taliban hands.
The Pentagon has not put an exact figure on the number of U.S. vehicles and weapons left behind in the country, but prior reports speculate armories of 360,000 rifles to thousands of trucks and Humvees along with a number of helicopters, based on government reports.
Trump maintained: “Nobody ever thought such stupidity, as this feeble-brained withdrawal, was possible!”
A Government Accountability Report from Aug. 10, 2017, claimed the U.S. government had appropriated $76 billion since fiscal year 2002 for “various DOD and State programs to support Afghan security.”
Earlier this month, two Republicans on the House Oversight Committee drafted a letter requesting information from the Pentagon over its plans to recover or destroy billions of dollars worth of U.S. equipment now in the hands of Taliban fighters.
The letter was signed by Rep. James Comer of the Committee on Oversight and Reform and Rep. Glenn Grothman of the Subcommittee on National Security.

When pressed on Monday about whether the Pentagon would provide a full account of how much U.S. military equipment was destroyed during the exit operation from Afghanistan, spokesman John Kirby said: “Time’s not right for that right now.”
The White House defended U.S. decision to leave behind a weapons arsenal, claiming America now has “leverage” in the global marketplace.
