Former President Donald Trump Sunday said that when he left office, "the endless wars that go on forever," had been virtually ended, but the Biden administration is taking steps to erase that period of success.
"I would go to Dover, and I would see caskets, coffins coming in, I'd see the parents and wives and husbands, I would see the kids," Trump said at the Conservative Political Action Conference meeting in Orlando. "Nineteen years in Afghanistan, we have it down to almost nothing left, and I hear they might want to go back in," said Trump. "Iraq. Remember, I used to say don't go in, but if you're going to go in, keep the oil. Well, we went in, and we didn't keep the oil. We had made historic peace deals in the Middle East like nobody thought were even possible, with not a drop of blood shed."
Further, he said, "not one American soldier has been killed in Afghanistan in over a year. Think of that. Not a one."
Troops have also largely come home, he said.
The Biden administration, meanwhile, is already taking steps to reenter the international Iran nuclear deal, including unilaterally withdrawing "our crippling sanctions on Iran, foolishly giving away all of America's leverage before negotiations had even begun," said Trump.
However, if there had been "a fair election" matters would have been "much different," and the United States would "have had a deal with Iran" in the first week of the new term.
"They wanted those sanctions off," said Trump. (Biden) took them off for nothing, for nothing. Now you watch how tough they negotiate."
