Mr Sullivan reiterated why it was now the US should pull out of Afghanistan.

He said: “What we realized prior to now two weeks is that if we had stayed yet another year, or two extra years, or 5 extra years, or 10 extra years, no quantity of coaching, equipping or money or lives lost by the United States was going to put the Afghan military in a position to maintain that nation by itself.

“The President had bad choices and the choice he made, to bring US forces home, to get us out of that civil war, to get our diplomats out of that embassy, and to ultimately ask the Afghans to step up and fight for themselves.

“It is heartbreaking to see what is occurring in Kabul.

In a fundraising electronic mail to supporters, Mr Trump expressed his frustration on the unfolding scenario.

He mentioned: “It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen in Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.

“It shouldn’t be a big deal, because he wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place!”
