TRUMP WAS RIGHT: In August 17th Interview He Predicted Taliban Would Hold Americans Hostage for Ransom — And Now They Have

Earlier today, we learned the Taliban is now holding six planes filled with Americans and Afghan SIV (special immigrant visa) Holders at the Mazar-i-Sharif International Airport in northern Afghanistan.

Congressman Michael McCaul told Chris Wallace today the planes will not be allowed to leave until the US recognized the Taliban terrorists as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

The Americans are being held hostage.

Who could have predicted this hostage situation? — President Donald Trump, that’s who!

Back on August 17th, President Trump predicted this exact scenario — That the Taliban would hold American hostages for ransom.

President Trump warned Americans what to expect from Afghanistan in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Trump predicted Biden’s humiliating Afghanistan withdrawal will be a colossal nightmare for America. The Taliban is going to hold Americans hostage.

And the ransom money for American hostages will fund their operations.

President Donald Trump: We’re being set up. They have all those people and I can guarantee you they consider them to be hostages. And let’s see what happens over the coming weeks. But this is not a story that ended today or yesterday. This is a story that is going to go on for a long time. And it could be a very, very bad ending.
