Former President Trump appeared on Fox News to blast President Biden for leaving military equipment to fall into the hands of the Taliban. Host Greg Gutfeld interviewed the former president on Wednesday.

“I mean, we did a great job. I rebuilt the military,” Trump told Gutfield. “All that beautiful stuff, that brand-new stuff, and you know who has it now? The Taliban. I built it for the Taliban.”

According to reports, the military left a number of machinery and weaponry. Over 64,000 machine guns, 350,000 assault rifles and 126,000 pistols fell to the hands of the Taliban. Not to mention the over 22,000 humvees, 50,000 trucks, 160 tanks and more.

“It wasn’t supposed to happen,” Trump said. “Now we see these beautiful, perfect, brand-new rifles, and these guys are carrying two and they’re wearing our uniforms and flying our helicopters. It’s a disgrace.”

Recently, a video of a man dangling from a Black Hawk in Afghanistan went viral. An Afghan journalist revealed it was a living Taliban fighter attempting to hoist the Taliban flag. In the end, he wasn’t successful.

Now, the Taliban isn’t the only group with access to this equipment. Former U.S. Army Green Beret and Central Intelligence Agency liaison officer Jerry Torres appeared on the Sara Carter Show Monday to warn that the cutting edge weapons left behind and Biden’s failed evacuation has emboldened America’s enemies.

“Here’s the thing about that equipment, you know, the equipment are going to Chinese,” Torres told Carter. “The equipment is one thing, but the code behind it, the computer programming code behind that stuff, is what the Chinese and the Russians need to catch up with us.”

Meanwhile, the Taliban also utilizes the rest of the weaponry left behind to fight the Panjshir province. The province is the last of the strongholds of the resistance effort.

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
