President Trump has indicated that he is planning to pull American forces out of Afghanistan in the near future, and former Democrat presidential candidate and ex-governor of Vermont, Howard Dean, doesn’t think that’s a good idea at all:
By withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan you are condemning millions of women to the Stone Age. No education, no choice about who they marry. They will become property when the Taliban takes over. Is that what you really want Ro? https://t.co/7VR9ZJUz8W

That hasn’t aged well in light of Dean’s recent comments:

“I actually supported the president when he sent extra troops to Afghanistan, But I’ve come to believe that’s not a winnable war.”

In 2011, @GovHowardDean wanted American troops out of Afghanistan.
In Dec 2018, he wants the troops to stay.

If Trump had said he was going to ramp up the number of troops in Afghanistan we’re guessing Dean would have found a reason to criticize that decision as well.
