Trump Can’t Seem To Make Up His Mind, Appears To Contradict His Own Statement Of Afghan Refugees As Chaos Mounts

Why am I not surprised?

Surprise, surprise, folks. Donald Trump can’t make up his damn mind.

In case you weren’t convinced of such by that insane Hannity interview last night, or the Fox Business interview this morning, or the fact that both he and the RNC seemed to wipe their respective websites of anything and everything having to do with the former president, Afghanistan, and the Taliban, this ought to convince you — because Donald just publicly proved as much himself.

On Monday, ex-President Trump put out a statement saying that Afghan citizens fleeing from the Taliban’s reign of terror should be allowed refuge in the United States. However, he has already shifted gears on that statement and it’s only just now Wednesday.

“Can anyone even imagine taking out our Military before evacuating civilians and others who have been good to our Country and who should be allowed to seek refuge?” Trump rhetorically asked in his Monday statement as he attacked President Biden and the evacuation of Americans and American allies in the Afghan capital of Kabul.

But Donald has already changed course in a new statement today, raging against a photo that reportedly shows hundreds of Afghan refugees cram-packed into a C-17 airplane that’s flying out of Kabul.

“This plane should have been full of Americans,” Trump fumed in today’s statement. “America First!”

Of course, as ridiculous as Trump’s sudden change of heart is, it’s far from surprising. Donald has a tendency to follow along with whoever has the most popular ideas at any given time, and many of his own allies have been loudly fearmongering at the concept of allowing tens of thousands of brown-skinned individuals refuge in the United States, despite the fact that they’re many of the very same people who stood beside the United States during the 20-year “forever war” with their country.

Let this serve as a reminder that Donald Trump doesn’t have morals, nor a spine. Yet they call us the “sheep.”
