They fled Afghanistan after Biden’s withdrawal. Now in the US, they hope Trump wins ( www.theguardian.com )

Samir said most college-educated Afghans he knows, and those who worked in the country’s former government, don’t like Joe Biden because of how he handled the withdrawal of US troops in 2021. “They left us and our lives in danger,” he said.

Roien Rahimi came to the U.S. from Afghanistan almost three years ago and now works for an organization that supports refugees’ mental health. He, too, is still struggling, he said. “I have to work even during the weekend, so I can afford the expenses.”

This makes it difficult to pay attention to the political climate of his new home. “Afghan new immigrants, they’re struggling with their life right now. It’s a bit far to think about the election,” he said. He said he doesn’t follow politics much, but spoke favorably of Donald Trump, and mentioned concerns over Joe Biden’s age. “If they bring good life to people of the US, we are happy. That’s what matters,” Rahimi concluded.

People who aren't paying attention have an uninformed opinion. Let's write an entire article about it.

Didn't Trump initiate the pull out, and left Biden to pick up the crap?

UK here, Afghans that helped us should automatically get the right to live here. We have left some of these people to their fate at the hands of the Taliban. Whatever government ministers signed off on that ought to be swapped for the Afghans they left behind.

An utter disgrace.

We know this. Biden was just left to pick up the pieces after the master of the deal stitched people up again.

We clearly don't know this if the headline is written as it was. Also there is clearly people here sharing these kinds of bullshit headlines so this point needs to continue being hammered in the face of this propoganda.

As the US weighs who should occupy the White House come January 2025, Samir said most college-educated Afghans he knows, and those who worked in the country’s former government, don’t like Joe Biden because of how he handled the withdrawal of US troops in 2021.

Samir said he’s concerned about illegal immigration and worries that people without the proper paperwork – something he waited for – will have a more difficult journey settling in the US, and that they will compete for resources he depends on.
