On the twentieth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, former President George W. Bush gave a speech in which he condemned, among other things, “domestic violent extremists”, which was perceived as a reference to the storming of Congress on January 6 this year.
That got another former president, Donald Trump, to react.
Among other things, it was his supporters who attacked Congress in January.
– It is so interesting to see former President Bush, who is responsible for us ending up in the quicksand in the Middle East (without winning!), When he talks about how terrorists from the “right” are a bigger problem than those from countries that hate the United States , and that is flowing into our country now, Trump said in a statement Monday, according to Washington Post.
Bush was president when the terrorist attack took place in 2001, and he was the one who went to war in the Middle East, in the so-called “War on Terror”.
– If that’s right, why was he willing to spend billions of dollars and be responsible for maybe millions of people dying? He should not lecture on anything. The World Trade Center collapsed on his watch. Bush had a failed and uninspiring presidency, Trump believes.
According to New York Times At least 7,000 American soldiers and hundreds of thousands of others have lost their lives during the 20 years of the “War on Terror.”
In August, the last NATO soldier left Afghanistan, ending the war.
Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Democrat Majority Leader Richard Durbin also chose to attack those who attacked Congress.
– Do you remember the national sense of community we had after 9/11? That tragedy brought us together. Now imagine speeding up to January 6, 2021, when a mob of rebels stormed Capitol Hill, Durbin told the Washington Post.
– It is heartbreaking to see that after 20 years, the biggest threat to the United States is not just international terrorism, but terrorism that comes from within. Al-Qaeda failed to attack Congress, but nine months ago US terrorists managed to do so, Durbin said.
