Former President Donald Trump on Monday favored the idea of taking in Afghan refugees who helped the U.S. military and are now under threat due to the Taliban takeover of the country.

“Can anyone imagine taking out our Military out before evacuating civilians?” Trump wrote via a statement.

The former president added that Afghans who helped the U.S. in the face of the situation “should be allowed to seek refuge.”

Thousands of jihadists massed south of the Afghan capital, while what remains of the Afghan government hands over power to the Taliban regime which, after the withdrawal of American troops, took over almost the entire country in a matter of weeks.

In a video message released today, Mullah Baradar Akhund, head of the insurgents’ political office in Qatar, declared the end of the Afghan war, and with them the beginning of the “moment of test” to prove that they can serve the country well.
