Announcing a record crowd at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines on Saturday night, former President Donald Trump said the Biden administration’s proposed $10 billion in aid should be only on the condition the Taliban returns all of the equipment left in Afghanistan.
“We want our hostages back, and then we want our equipment back, and then we can start talking about that,” Trump told his Save America rally, which aired live on Newsmax.
Trump began by lamenting the country he led for four years has been left to the “brink of ruin” under President Joe Biden.
“As we gather tonight, millions of Americans are realizing that Joe Biden and the radical left have brought our nation to the brink of ruin,” Trump said. “After just 9 months under Biden, violent criminals and bloodthirsty gangs are taking over our streets, illegal aliens and deadly drug cartels are taking over our borders, inflation is taking over our economy, China is taking over our jobs, the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, lunatic leftists are taking over our schools, and radical socialists are taking over our country.
“You can’t say I didn’t warn you!”
Trump continued his rebuke of the military leaders, including “TV generals” like Gen. Mark Milley, who he said was the one who claimed it was cheaper to leave the report $85 billion worth of the “latest and greatest” weapons and equipment in Afghanistan during Biden’s unconditional withdrawal this August.
“What are you a nut job? Are you stupid?” Trump claimed he told Milley about advice to leave the equipment behind in Trump administration withdrawal planning. “That’s when I realized – that was one of the many times – I realized he was stupid.”
As for Biden, Trump called the destruction of his border policies, including breaking back catch and release, a permitting of a “foreign invasion.”
“Never before has a president shown such utter contempt for his oath of office,” Trump said. “Joe Biden has launched a foreign invasion of his own country.”
Trump continued his post-presidency stumping for 2022 midterm candidates, including an official endorsement of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
Also, he repeated his saying Democrats “used COVID in order to cheat” in the 2020 presidential election, outlining the findings of the Arizona forensic audit of Maricopa Country, leading the crowd to chant “Trump won.”
“The whole world laughs at us, on this, the border, Afghanistan – everything,” Trump responded.
Trump called for a “complete overhaul of our entire elections system.”
“If we want to save our country, and make American great again, we have only one choice: We must elect strong and unyielding America First Republicans at every level — and we must pass a complete overhaul of our entire elections system to ensure it is free, fair, honest, and able to be full audited,” Trump continued.
“That begins with November 2022, when we are going to reclaim the House, and we are going to reclaim the United States Senate.”
