Former New York City Mayor and former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani criticized President Joe Biden over his failed Afghanistan departure on Sunday, arguing the president is “mentally impaired.”
“I think we’re back where we started from. And I think that we got paid back very seriously for electing a president who’s mentally impaired,” Giuliani said during a Washington Times interview published Sunday.
“The whole purpose of that war was to have our soldiers there so they couldn’t plan to come and attack us. So now what has Biden done? He’s taking the soldiers out. They’re coming out of the woodwork like crazy,” he added.

Giuliani arose to nationwide fame following 9/11 for his heroic speeches and actions in New York City. He was a strong proponent of sending American troops to Afghanistan to retaliate for the attacks on the Word Trade Towers.
More recently, Giuliani has come under scrutiny for his arguments of 2020 election fraud, including a lawsuit from voting machine firm Smartmatic, maker of the Dominion Voting System machines.
“Trump is a rational human being that has all his mental capacity,” Giuliani said during the interview. “Even if he had decided to pull out, he would have pulled out in a way that was planned, done logically and sensibly.”
He added, “I have no doubt those 13 soldiers would be alive. Not just Trump, if any reasonable man were president.”
