Biden Could’ve Reversed Trump’s ‘Surrender Agreement’ With Taliban, Liz Cheney Says

Cheney was one of the Republicans that opposed Trump’s claims of a “stolen election” and supported impeachment procedures against him, after which the congresswoman was ousted from her leadership post on a voice vote. She vowed to do everything she could to “ensure that the former President never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”

US House Republican lawmaker Liz Cheney says there is “no question” President Joe Biden could have back-pedaled on the US agreement with the Taliban* negotiated by the former administration of Donald Trump.

“[W]e sat down and negotiated with terrorists, because we completely excluded the Afghan government from those negotiations, we gave credibility to the Taliban,” Cheney said.

When asked by the host if Biden had the opportunity to reverse the deal Cheney labeled a “surrender agreement”, she replied that there was “no question” the POTUS has the right to do so, as he did reverse some of the policies initiated by Trump.

She named the potential revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and the decision to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord as examples.

The 2020 agreement with the Taliban, which Trump touted as one of his achievements while president, envisaged the Islamists renouncing violence in return for the gradual pullout of all American forces from the country. In accordance with the agreement, the US forces were supposed to withdraw by May 1, 2021, but Biden switched the deadline to August 31, just days before the 9/11 anniversary.
