Laura Ingraham blasts Trump over Afghanistan


On Monday night, President Donald J. Trump announced that he will not pull United States troops out of Afghanistan and that he plans to continue war efforts in the Muslim region.

In response, one of the biggest President Trump supporters on conservative radio and television, Laura Ingraham, is unhappy with the announcement and wants more information. Clearly, reading her tweets, she is not in support of the president’s decision to remain in Afghanistan.

Ingraham spent Monday night commenting about the president’s plan to add 4,000 troops to the nearly 8,400 U.S. military personnel currently in Afghanistan today.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel tweeted her support for the plan, writing: “.@POTUS took a bold step forward by asserting America’s strength worldwide and making crystal clear that we will no longer lead from behind.”

Ingraham quickly retorted in a tweet of her own: “Who’s going to pay for it? What is our measure of success? We didn’t win with 100K troops. How will we win with 4,000 more?”

On Tuesday, Ingraham continued voicing her disdain for President Donald J. Trump’s intention to continue the war efforts in the terror laden country.

Political analyst Mark Halperin, who is a regular on left – leaning MSNBC, tweeted his feelings about continuing the war in Afghanistan, questioning the plan by writing: “A quagmire is a quagmire is a quagmire.”

Ingraham responded to the tweet, indicating President Trump should be focused on political issues here in the United States of America, tweeting: “I thought we were going to drain the swamp in Washington, not clear the desert in Afghanistan,”

On Tuesday morning, Laura Ingraham posted on her website an interview she gave on the Fox News Channel regarding the war in Afghanistan. In the interview, she said most people would support President Trump’s prior position to pull out of the war – torn region of Afghanistan. She said she believes the president won the election, in part, due to that stance alone.

Ingraham, who is no stranger to inner working in Washington DC, has hinted at a future Senate run against Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who was the vice-presidential candidate alongside failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “I’m considering it,” Ingraham said in January of this year. “I haven’t made any decisions, but a number of folks in Virginia who are well connected are very interested in my running, and that’s very flattering.”   Doing so would require her to leave the very successful radio show she has been hosting for years.
