Trey Gowdy Says Biden’s August 31 Withdrawal Deadline ‘Makes Absolutely No Sense’

The former Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy went on Fox News over the weekend to blast President Joe Biden for his withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

“Trey, you hear those stories, and we hear about the success of the thousands and thousands who have gotten out,” said Fox News host Bret Baier. “But there are many more Afghans especially who won’t get out, and there are some Americans who won’t make that last plane either.”

“Right, Bret, which is why this August 31st deadline that he will not budge from makes absolutely no sense. And just in case people are not familiar with ISIS-K, that’s a new name,” Gowdy replied. “Bret, that’s the group that went to the maternity ward of a hospital and killed infants and new mothers. That’s who was let out of prisoner.”

“That’s who is left in Afghanistan,” he continued. “So why we are so hellbent on leaving August 31 when we have people that helped us behind, I don’t understand.”

Later on in the segment, Gowdy proceeded to double down.

“I am in the minority, I think, in our country,” he said. “Any withdrawal plan that is depending on the Taliban keeping its word or joining the 21st century, I think is a flawed plan. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat president. This is the group, I think, that still stones rape victims. And we are going to rely on them to make sure that Americans get out of Afghanistan and keep the law of order?”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“That’s the group that is keeping the law and order?” Gowdy continued. “They may be better than ISIS-K, but that ain’t saying much. Is-k kills newborns. That ain’t saying much.”

Last week, Gowdy ripped into Biden for the situation in Afghanistan.

“Biden said that America is back, he was wrong. the Taliban is back,” Gowdy stated. “And America? Well, America is leaving. Leaving the women and children. Leaving those who believed in us. Leaves those who risked and gave their lives for us.”

“America does not leave women, girls, children our friends or fellow Americans behind, period. Greatness comes with a price,” he concluded. “What we’re seeing in Afghanistan is not American greatness. It is an American failure.”

What is wrong with these people who talk about Joe like he is there? He isn’t there people! So who is?

The Islamic State, China and Russia all benefit. Obama is married to the Islamic State and China and Russia both own compromised Hunter. Every day Natalie Winters uncovers more China owned Biden Regime members.

Is there a reason Trey Gowdy can’t report all of this? We have had enough days of rage, let’s get down to the meat of who and why it has been allowed already.

What’s the solution to the embarrassment the U.S. has experienced. First, Get Biden and the democrats out of the white house and Trump back in. Trump to set a deadline for the release of any hostages and the the return of any and all US equipment being held by the Taliban. Let it be known that a refusal will result in several planes loaded with H Bombs will be on their way to wipe them out. We may even lose a few more Americans in the process but they would be remembered as hero’s and the Taliban would be no more. I wish I could say that this is the only problem we have in our nation but I’m sad to say it’s not. The Democrats are well on their to destroying our nation by bringing in all kind of riff raft into our nation for their votes. We must take action before this great nation is overrun with them.

The Aug 31 deadline makes perfect sense…Aug is the month of Hurarram in the Islamic calender and warfafre is forbidden. Another OBidolt’s gift to the Taliban
