Pompeo and Trump have endeavored to clear themselves of the current circumstance in Afghanistan and have faulted Biden for the aftermath.
“I trust this Administration comes to comprehend that saying ‘sorry’, mollifying, pacifying, being feeble, just presents dangers to American security,” Pompeo tweeted on Thursday.
