Trump insists he would have stopped the ISIS-K bombing at Kabul airport but kept calling the terror group 'ISIS-X'

ISIS-K claimed responsibility for the Kabul Airport Bombings of 26 August that killed more than 100 people.
This was said by former President Trump if he had been president.

Trump repeatedly calls them ISISX, which is simply incorrect.

A suicide bomber attacked Kabul Airport, Afghanistan, on 26 August. It killed 185 people and injured over 150.

The attack was carried out by ISIS-K, a terrorist group that considers the Taliban their enemy.

Donald Trump stated that the attack would not "have happened if I was your president" but repeatedly called out the group by its wrong name, calling them "ISISX."

Sean Hannity, Fox News' former President, said: "[The Taliban] have some people, as I stated, that broke apart... because they weren't mean enough or vicious enough." That's where they broke off, and that's what ISIS-X is.

Trump corrected himself and said, "They'll soon have an ISISX pretty soon. Which is going to be worse then ISIS-K."

Critics took the opportunity to mock Trump's misinformation and laughed.

For some reason, I'm actually watching Trump on Hannity. It's a wonderful reminder of the kind of President we shouldn't elect again and what historical revision looks. Adam Kinzinger (@AdamKinzinger) August 27, 2021
