Former US president Donald Trump has lashed out at the Biden administration saying it is the “worst in history” for blaming him for the chaotic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

Taking to his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump launched a tirade on Sunday and accused the Biden administration of being corrupt and always blaming others for their blunders.

“Can you believe that the totally corrupt Biden Disinformation Administration is now trying to blame ‘TRUMP’ for their incompetent exit from Afghanistan,” he wrote.

“They are the worst in history, absolutely terrible people always blaming someone else for their mistakes and blunders – of which there are many!”

In one of many posts, Trump wrote the US “will end up in World War lll with these vicious, but very stupid, people in charge.”

This comes after the Biden administration released a report on the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021. The chaos was blamed on Trump, whose administration had signed the Doha agreement with the Taliban in 2020, without input from US allies nor the government of Afghanistan at the time.

Following the release of the report last week, Washington’s National Security Council spokesman John Kirby defended the Biden administration’s actions in Kabul during the withdrawal and said the administration was “proud” of how US forces carried out the withdrawal, which led to the Taliban toppling the American-backed Afghan government.

At the same time as blaming the Trump administration for the disaster, Kirby also denied that there was chaos at all.

“All this talk of chaos, I just don’t see it,” Kirby said in a White House briefing, referring to the withdrawal that culminated in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport that killed 13 Americans and some 170 others. “I just don’t buy the whole argument of chaos,” he said.

Kirby also said reports of the US having left million of dollars of equipment in Afghanistan was “just ludicrous”. He said the equipment belonged to Afghanistan.

Trump in turn said on Sunday: “These Morons in the White House, who are systematically destroying our Country, headed up by the biggest Moron of them all, Hopeless Joe Biden, have a new disinformation game they are playing – Blame ‘TRUMP’ for their grossly incompetent SURRENDER in Afghanistan.”

“I watched this disaster unfold just like everyone else. I saw them take out the Military FIRST, GIVE $85 Billion of military equipment, allow killing of our soldiers, and leave Americans behind. Biden is responsible, no one else!” he wrote.
