Trump Reveals His Master Plan for Afghanistan: We Should've 'Let It Rot'

In his latest interview, the former president repeatedly failed to explain what he would have done differently if he had remained in charge.

Donald Trump has had a lot to say about how Joe Biden has mishandled the withdrawal from Afghanistan—but, when given the chance to explain what he would have done differently, Trump’s master plan boiled down to leaving the country in smouldering ruins before leaving it forever.

The ex-president appeared on Fox Business on Tuesday morning to get some things off his chest a day after the last U.S. troops left Afghanistan. During a curious rant about how he believes unnamed shadowy forces are controlling Biden, Trump shared his alternative withdrawal plans.

“It’s something that’s rather incredible,” he said. “They [the people supposedly controlling Biden] do horrible things, vicious things. They cheat, steal, lie. But they can’t do a simple withdrawal from a country that we should never have gone into in the first place... We should have hit that country years ago, hit it them really hard, and then let it rot.”

The former president was repeatedly thrown softball questions about how he would’ve handled the situation if he hadn’t lost the election. However, he repeatedly failed to give any answers of substance, merely saying that he would’ve won the war in Afghanistan if only he’d had a few more months.

1. That's sounds true to form. It's like the sick little kid he yanked the health insurance from. It's

the way he deals with humans who get in his way.

2. Damn

Well, that's being very forthright, isn't it? Just let the suckers rot already. That was even worse than, "We should have taken the oil". What a monster.

3. Interesting projection about the shadowy figures doing horrible things.

Vicious things, cheat, lie, steal.

The orange f-wad describing himself and his masters.

4. ATTN TFG

You are not President anymore. Go the fuck away.
I don't want to hear from or about you again until justice catches up with you and your spawn.

5. If only he'd had a few more months!

But he was so busy with Infrastructure Week and the demands of his relentless golf schedule that gosh darn it he just couldn't break loose the time to win the war in Afghanistan. Somehow.
