Donald Trump had more to offer than just support and remembrance during his 9/11 message Saturday morning. He also used it as a opportunity to roast President Joe Biden’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
“For the great people of our country this is a very sad day,” Trump said at the start of a minute-and-a-half video. “September 11 represents great sorrow for our country.”
“Many things were displayed that day, including most importantly the bravery of our police, fire and first responders of every kind, the job they did was truly unbelievable. We love them and we thank them.”
He then took the time to criticize Biden for last month’s Afghanistan withdrawal.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week, the loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded, should never have happened,” Trump said in the video.
“It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war, and should have been a year of victory and honor, and strength.”
Trump did not attend the Ground Zero ceremony but did intend to visit the site on Saturday.
