Mitch McConnell Just Slammed Trump’s Plan to Pull Out of Afghanistan

(Photo by SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images)Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just took a big swipe at President Trump over his reported plan to slash U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan, displaying a rare split from the president. McConnell has defended Trump for years through major controversies, including an impeachment and Trump’s refusal to admit that he lost the 2020 election. \"A rapid withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan now would hurt our allies and delight, delight, the people who wish us harm,” McConnell said. The U.S. currently has about 4,500 US troops in Afghanistan and 3,000 troops in Iraq, according to CNN. McConnell compared a rapid withdrawal from Afghanistan to what he called America’s “humiliating” pullout from Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War.
