It amazes me that some people are like this and can't think for themselves and make their own decisions. Flat earthers make very similar statements.

It's also hard to say that the ones with the highest approval numbers turned out to be the best presidents. Look at what George W. Bush managed to do with his 71.2%!

Agreed that Biden inherited Afghanistan too. I was referring to the exit planning that was under Biden's control.

The Afghanistan withdrawal was his own doing. It was Trump that announced the withdrawal and effectively tied Biden to a deadline.

Anywhere you add up, the US vastly overspends Europe.
