Republican National Committee has deleted a page from its website on former U.S President Donald Trump‘s ‘historic peace agreement with the Taliban’ and his support for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.
Gatekeepers News reports that the page was brought down around the same time when Trump called on President Joe Biden to resign over the unrest in Afghanistan on Sunday night.
The now-deleted post was titled ‘President Trump Is Bringing Peace In The Middle East’ and described how he ‘continued to take the lead in peace talks’.
It also claimed ‘while President Trump has championed peace, Joe Biden has taken the lead in pushing for endless wars’ and how the former president had ‘taken action to defeat and eliminate dangerous leaders.’
On Sunday night, when users tried to visit the page, they were met with an error message and an image of the current president saying ‘it looks like you’re as lost as Biden is’.
Gatekeepers News reports that in 2020, Trump made a conditional peace deal with the Taliban to reduce the number of Afghan troops if the Taliban did not provide support to terrorists, an agreement criticised by Biden.
Trump also said he wanted a complete withdrawal by May 1 of this year.
Trump, on Sunday night, sent a statement to his followers calling on Biden to ‘resign in disgrace’ amid the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan after the withdrawal of U.S troops.
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” Trump said in an email.
He continued perpetuating his claim that Biden won the presidency via election fraud, concluding the email: ‘”It shouldn’t be a big deal, because he wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place.”
Earlier, Trump had issued another statement denouncing the Biden administration over the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
“Tragic mess in Afghanistan, a completely open and broken Border, Crime at record levels, oil prices through the roof, inflation rising, and taken advantage of by the entire world—DO YOU MISS ME YET?” he said in a short emailed statement on Friday.
Gatekeepers News reports that the Taliban have nearly completed the takeover of Afghanistan as President Ashraf Ghani has also fled the country on Sunday.
The development comes as Biden held his promise to send the troops home before the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
