Titled “President Trump Is Bringing Peace In The Middle East”, the page also claimed Joe Biden was in favour of pursuing “endless wars”. When users tried to visit the page on Sunday night, they found an error message with an image of the current President saying “it looks like you’re as lost as Biden is”, according to the Daily Mail. The paper was informed by a Republican source the RNC site has recently been undergoing maintenance and there are no pages older than January 1, 2021.

The Trump administration concluded a peace deal with the Taliban on February 29, 2020 in Doha, Qatar.

Known as the Doha Agreement, the deal included the withdrawal of all American and NATO troops from Afghanistan, a Taliban pledge to prevent al-Qaeda from operating in areas under Taliban control, and talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

The United States agreed to an initial reduction of its force level from 13,000 to 8,600 by July 2020, followed by a full withdrawal within 14 months if the Taliban kept its commitments.

The United States also committed to closing five military bases within 135 days, and expressed its intent to end economic sanctions on the Taliban by August 27, 2020.

The deal was supported by China, Russia and Pakistan and unanimously endorsed by the UN Security Council, although it did not involve the government of Afghanistan.

Ben Wallace, the UK Defence Minister, branded the Taliban deal as “rotten” in a forthright interview with Sky News last Friday.

“I think that deal that was done in Doha was a rotten deal,” he said.

“It told a Taliban that wasn’t winning that they were winning, and it undermined the government of Afghanistan, and now we’re in this position where the Taliban have clearly the momentum across the country.”

The fearsome jihadists completed their takeover of Afghanistan on Sunday, after capturing the capital city, Kabul.

Ex-president Ashraf Ghani fled the country, as the Taliban declared victory and brought to an end almost 20-years of US and NATO involvement in the country.

Mr Trump launched a withering attack on his Democratic successor, calling for him to “resign in disgrace”.

In a statement, he said: “It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he allowed to happen in Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in Covid, the border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.”
