Anti-Trump protests expand across US
Anti-Trump and anti-American protests held in Kabul
Afghan presidential candidate Gulbuddin Hekmatyar invited Trump to test his strength on Putin
One of the most likely winners in the upcoming presidential elections in Afghanistan on Friday called on US President Donald Trump to try to use military force against Russia instead of threatening reprisals against the “oppressed Afghan people.” This was reported by the correspondent of the “Voice of America” in Islamabad Ayaz Gul.
Politicians and the public in the war-torn country are furious with the plans the US president is hatching for Afghanistan. If this plan is implemented, according to Donald Trump, the Afghan war will be completed in 10 days – however, 10 million people will die, and Afghanistan itself will be wiped off the face of the Earth..
During a rally in Kabul, Hekmatyar, the main candidate for victory in the upcoming presidential elections, sharply criticized Trump’s words. The crowd of thousands chanted: “Death to America, death to Trump”.
“We ask Mr Trump: if you have courage and strength, and you are so confident in your military power, test it on Putin, not on oppressed Afghans,” Hekmatyar said..
“(On) the very Putin who is said to have interfered in the American elections, helped (Trump) get into the White House and become president,” Hekmatyar continued..
Two years ago, Hekmatyar and his militants fought in Afghanistan on the side of the Taliban against the United States and NATO. In 2017, Hekmayar concluded a truce with the official government in Kabul.
Afghans were infuriated by a phrase uttered by Donald Trump during a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House. Trump tried to explain that Islamabad needs help to “get out of Afghanistan”.
“I have plans for Afghanistan. If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth. He would disappear. Everything would be over, literally, in 10 days. But I don’t want to … go this way, ”the president said..
Most of the Afghan presidential candidates and former President Hamid Karzai have also criticized Trump for his words. Karzai told Voice of America that the words of the US President demonstrate his “criminal thinking” and “contempt” for the Afghan people..
Hekmatyar, leader of the Hizb-e-Islami political group, advocates a truce with the Taliban and an end to hostilities.
