(RepublicanInformer.com)- Far-left socialist Senator for Vermont, Bernie Sanders, took a moment to praise former President Donald Trump during a recent interview, doing more than any other high-profile Democrat in the country to admit that the last Republican administration worked harder than any other recent administration to end America’s involvement in endless wars.
Speaking to Wolf Blitzer on left-wing propaganda network CNN, Senator Sanders discussed President Joe Biden’s promise to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by September 11, which will be the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that sparked the Afghanistan war.
Sanders admitted that “what President Biden is doing is picking up on the negotiated agreement that President Trump put together.”
That’s something that even President Joe Biden hasn’t admitted.
“I am not a great fan of Donald Trump and his administration, but he was right in trying to end endless wars. These wars cannot continue to go on forever, and we’ve got to learn that in many respects, diplomacy, various types of educational aid, health care aid, is much more important and much more effective than an occupying force on the ground,” the Senator added.
Sanders was referencing the deal that former President Donald Trump signed in February of last year, agreeing with the Taliban that the United States would withdraw all troops from Afghanistan by May 2021 so long as the Islamist group upheld a number of commitments – including refusing to provide a safe haven to the terrorist organization al Qaeda.
While President Joe Biden proudly announced that he would end the Afghanistan war by September 11, former President Trump had already agreed to end it much sooner.
The former presidential candidate added that the United States must also “do the best we can “to support the Afghan military and, but added that we “do not need to spend huge amounts of money doing that, we do not need to put American lives at stake.”
When President Biden announced that he was withdrawing American troops, he refused to acknowledge that he was building on Trump’s plan.
“War in Afghanistan was never meant to be a multigenerational undertaking. We were attacked. We went to war with clear goals. We achieved those objectives. Bin Laden is dead, and al Qaeda is degraded in Iraq — in Afghanistan. And it’s time to end the forever war,” he said.
Even Bernie Sanders can admit Trump was right…so why can’t Biden?
