Presidential son Eric Trump said Tuesday that American taxpayers are due a “refund” following the chaotic, deadly evacuation from Afghanistan over the weekend.
“Think about it: 600,000 arms, 76,000 the vehicles [that] we gave a terrorist organization that three weeks ago was riding around on mopeds,” Trump said Tuesday on Newsmax TV.
“I feel like we’re getting ripped off every single day,” Trump added.
He went on to note that the weapons “do not have expiration dates on them,” suggesting further they will be used “for the next 20 and 30 and 40 and 50 and 60 years.”
“I mean, some of the AK-47s that they have on the battlefield right now, they were produced in the 1960s and 1970s,” former President Donald Trump’s son continued.
“It is going to be untold lives that these weapons take because of our foolishness and our carelessness,” he said.
“The blood of Americans and the blood of people all around the world will lie with [President] Joe Biden,” Trump went on.
He then noted that Biden appeared to be checking his watch often during a solemn service at Dover Air Force Base where the bodies of 13 U.S. service personnel killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul Thursday were offloaded from a C-17 aircraft.
“I remember my father went out there and he would see troops coming off the back of these planes, and I can tell you the impact that that has on a person’s life, and this guy is looking at his watch,” he said.
“We want a refund as a nation,” Trump said. “This guy is a disaster.
“He’s literally flushing the respect of our country down the tubes. He’s embarrassing our flag. He’s embarrassing everything that we stand for as the greatest country on Earth,” Trump added.
He said his father also did not start new wars but ended some, including when he ordered a massive bomb never used in combat before on a cave complex in Afghanistan in 2017, killing dozens of Taliban militants.
Such acts earned his father, and the country, respect from the country’s enemies.
“North Korea sees that, and Russia sees and China sees it,” he said. “People realize that Donald Trump wasn’t playing around.”
The middle Trump son went on to say that the region is now much more extremist again like it was before the 9/11 attacks nearly 20 years ago when the Taliban was first in charge, noting that next-door Pakistan is equally extremist and nuclear-armed.
“Pakistan is a nuclear power. They believe in Sharia law as well,” he said.
“There’s a lot of people over there that don’t like Christianity and the American flag. And by the way, there’s a lot of poverty over there,” Trump said.
“And that’s not a good combination, especially when we have no eyes and ears on the ground,” Trump added.
“And we as a country better be damn careful that it doesn’t attack our shores in a much larger way than ever before.”
Donald Trump said in an interview with One America News Network that was broadcast on Monday he believes another 9/11-style attack will happen in the U.S. because of the way the U.S. withdrew and because the southwestern border remains poorly defended.
