McConnell is the most powerful Republican leader in Washington. But he doesn’t have the same unmatched platform he did when he was in the same position – the chief of the minority opposition in Washington – at the start of former President Obama’s tenure.
McConnell seized Biden’s declaration that he would withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan as a prime example of him speaking like a center. But ruled from the left
GOP leaders warned that Biden had ordered a “hasty total withdrawal from Afghanistan” that would “leave the coalition and vulnerable Afghans high and dry.”
Alcross, a professor of journalism at the University of Kentucky and longtime Kentucky political commentator, said McConnell was trying to set it up so he could join Biden if the radical group that Hold on to full control of Afghanistan, or if terrorist groups use it again. As a base for attacking the United States
“He set up a sign to say ‘I told you’ when Afghanistan was in hell, “he said.” He paid these small downpoints on political investments, which may or may not happen. “

(SD) McConnell’s potential successor said Biden’s decision was a “big mistake” and “not the right move”.
“I know there is a lot of pressure from the left in this country to leave Afghanistan. But we have invested there for a long time and one thing we don’t want to do is create conditions there. It is a favorite for terrorist organizations to train and prepare and plan attacks on the United States, ”he said in an interview with podcast host David Brody.

“It is not worth supporting. It seems to me that the Taliban had the upper hand, and the challenge was to keep remembering the lessons of 9/11 that the power vacuum was full of bad guys. He said after the senators had been briefed on Biden’s decision. “It’s hard to know what the plan was. Seems to be ‘Hope for the best’ ”
But Trump has cut the price of messaging from Republican leaders in the Senate, opening the way for other Republicans to show support for Biden’s decision, or at least raise public questions about the wisdom of the treatment. Get out of the US Army in Afghanistan from the fall.
John Ullyot, a spokesman for the National Security Council under Trump, told The Hill:President TrumpDonald Trump, a Facebook supervisory board to rule out Trump’s ban, on Wednesday Rubio opened the door in a White House bid, the Lincoln Project mocking Trump that he lost the McConnell MORE ‘swamp’. Did a great job of pulling our forces against resistance from the Pentagon, especially last year. All of our troops will be able to return home now if he is president. His support for Biden’s move to get us out will bring in many Republicans who do not publicly hold opposing positions. ”
Trump wants the entire US military to leave Afghanistan by May 1 and hailed the opportunity as “Great and positive thing to do”
That creates greater political coverage for other Republicans to undermine their leadership.
McConnell’s leadership on the issue was also undercut by Trump’s call for the Senate Republicans to oust him as their leader, something the former president reiterated on Thursday.
GOP strategists say the base is with Trump, not McConnell, which gives Republicans an incentive to follow his lead, especially if they want to run for the White House in 2024 if they want. Trump abandoned the race.
“Grassroots are with Trump on this matter, so the party is with Trump on the issue,” said GOP strategist Ford O’Connell.
However, he said McConnell was playing the role of traditional Republicans in pushing a muscular national security stance, adding that “Republicans are generally stronger than the Democratic Party.” Mobat
“Unfortunately, McConnell doesn’t see the bigger picture that whenever we don’t focus on China, we lose,” O’Connell said. America and all humanity are China, and whenever you’ve been in the Middle East for over 20 years, you’re not focusing on China. ”
Policy experts and practitioners say Trump has helped change China’s political views, making the threat of emerging powers more important to Republican voters. This prompted the Senate Republicans to agree to support the law, which is expected to be a bipartisan, in response to growing competition from China whenever Schumer brings it to the ground.
Other Republicans are shifting their focus from Afghanistan and toward China.

“That shouldn’t be the United States,” she said, although she raised concerns about the release of Afghanistan quickly and hard when Afghanistan’s future was uncertain.
Other Republicans said they thought the Biden’s administration could defend Afghanistan that became an incubator for international terrorist organizations, as did al-Qaeda before the 9/11 attacks.

Cheney said this was a “huge propaganda victory” for the Taliban and Al Qaeda and “put the security of America at risk”.
But Cheney’s message was rejected by Trump’s powerful counterparts.
“This warm fool wants to stay in the Middle East and Afghanistan for the next 19 years, but doesn’t take into account the whole picture of Russia and China!” Trump said last week in a statement released by his PAC leader.
Trump has been fighting Cheney since she voted to convict him in an article on charges of inciting an uprising on Jan. 6.
