CNN Replayed Video Of Stephen Miller Talking About How Donald Trump Would Have Handled Afghan Refugees And It’s Not Pretty

As the blame game continues for the exit in Afghanistan after the region fell to the Taliban, a former aide to former Vice President Mike Pence, Olivia Troye, took to Twitter to open a can of whoop-ass on Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump. “Stephen Miller would peddle his racist hysteria about Iraq & Afghanistan,” she tweeted and said that Pence was “fully aware” of the problem. The former homeland security, counterterrorism, and coronavirus adviser to Pence said, “We all knew the urgency, but the resources had been depleted.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta was all over Miller. Acosta asked, “You think Trump was going to bring all of these Afghan partners back to the US? Let’s ask one of the architects of Trump’s immigration policy,” then played a clip of Stephen Miller blasting refugees from Afghanistan. Miller said at the time, “The United States of America never, ever made a promise written or unwritten to the people of Afghanistan that if after 20 years they were unable to secure their own country that we would take them to ours. That is nonsense.”



Pence blasted President Biden in a recent opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal  over  what he described as the “disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan” that he said, “is a foreign policy humiliation, unlike anything our country has endured since the Iran hostage crisis.” And of course, Pence didn’t mention the Afghans stranded in the area, hoping to come to the U.S.

Meanwhile, Trump has sent out numerous statements to attack President Joe Biden during the crisis. And that’s unprecedented for a former president to attack his successor, but that’s who Trump is. The twice-impeached one-term president didn’t have a plan to help the Afghans, and according to Miller, his administration didn’t want to help them.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
