Trump criticizes Colin Powell and his many “mistakes”

Washington: Asharq Al-Awsat Online.

Former US President Donald Trump said today (Tuesday) in a statement published a day after the death of Colin Powell, Secretary of State under George W. Bush, that Powell “made many mistakes, but in any case, may he rest in peace!”
Powell, who was one of the fiercest critics of the former Republican president, died at the age of 84 due to complications from “Covid-19”, and was mourned by American political figures, including Democratic President Joe Biden, according to the French press agency.
Trump considered the consensual tone of politicians too vague, and sarcastically said he hoped to receive similar praise upon his death, according to Agence France-Presse.
The former president wrote in his statement: “It is nice to see the wonderful handling of the misleading media with the late Colin Powell, who made great mistakes in Iraq, especially with regard to the so-called weapons of mass destruction. I hope this will happen to me one day too.”
He also accused Powell of being “a Republican in name only” and “always first to attack other Republicans,” a cause for frequent criticism of the man who was the first African-American to lead the military and then the State Department. Powell has long been a vocal critic of Donald Trump. In 2016, he backed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton against the Republican billionaire, and four years later he announced that he would vote for Joe Biden, accusing the Republican president of “lying all the time.”
