Who could be the one actually running things?
Susan Rice? Kamala Harris? Hillary Clinton? Obama? Xi Jinping?
Apparently it could be any of these people because according to President Trump, Biden ISN’T calling the shots.
We have all suspected this for some time now, and this was far before the catastrophe that was The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
An Afghanistan that after trillions of dollars spent, and countless lives lives lost, fell in only ONE day to Taliban forces.
For the first couple of days we didn’t hear a peep out of Biden, but he has since emerged from hiding, put down the ice cream, and addressed the nation with perhaps the worst things he could have said at a time like this.
Makes you wonder who or what is actually running things in this country right now.
President Trump: “Biden ISN’T Calling The Shots”
President Trump pointed all of this out and more:

Yesterday, the White House said that Joe Biden has not taken any calls with world leaders in regards to Afghanistan.
Justin Trudeau stated that he spoke with Hillary Clinton yesterday about Afghanistan.

President Trump told Hannity on Fox News:
“I don’t even believe that he is calling the shots,” Trump said of Biden. “What you need more than anything is a president that is respected, and you need a president that got rid of ISIS and got 100% got rid of ISIS.”
Appearing to refer to a comment made by Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, on “Special Report” earlier Tuesday, Trump disputed the Kentuckian’s claim that Afghanistan wasn’t costing the Pentagon or the American taxpayer as much as advertised.
McConnell had claimed the Pentagon was spending about 1% of its budget “keeping the lid on” Afghanistan and its insurgent groups, while Trump claimed it was much more than that in reality.
Totally agree but the vice president who will be in charge after that happens will be worse. Plus, we all know Biden isn't the one calling the shots now. He is not "mentally capable" and she is just not "capable". https://t.co/AXyrQeUSby

The New York Post had more:
“It’s a great thing that we’re getting out, but nobody has ever handled a withdrawal worse than Joe Biden,” the 45th president told Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday. “This is the greatest embarrassment, I believe, in the history of our country.”
Trump sat down for his first interview since the Taliban marched into Kabul Sunday, climaxing a 96-hour conquest that saw Afghanistan’s major cities and provincial capitals fall with little resistance. While he was full of criticism for the Biden administration, Trump also at times echoed his successor’s address to the nation Monday, which cast blame on Afghan military and political leaders for their battlefield collapse and the resulting scenes of chaos.
“I knew they [Afghan security forces] weren’t going to fight … I said, ‘Why are they fighting? Why are these Afghan soldiers fighting against the Taliban?’” Trump recounted to host Sean Hannity. “And I was told some very bad information by a lot of different people.
