Biden ally claims Taliban pose less of a threat than Trump and “Trump extremists”

Biden ally David Rothkopf made the provocative claim on Twitter that the Taliban and Al Qaeda pose less of a threat than “Trump and “Trump extremists.”

He wrote “The Taliban, all of them together, plus every Al Qaeda fighter in the world, do not pose the threat to the United States that Trump or Trumpist extremists do. Let’s maintain our perspective.”

Rothkopf is requently retweeted by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. Per Fox News “During the first 93 days of the Biden administration, Klain retweeted Rothkopf 36 times and tweeted out at least four of his columns, sometimes multiple time.”

The report adds that “‘Rothkopf, a Daily Beast contributing columnist and the CEO of The Rothkopf Group, an interactive media and advisory firm, has written several columns heaping praise on the Biden administration, which has gotten the attention of Klain. His columns also attacked Republicans, including one earlier this year that said the Republican Party is the “party of thugs, terrorists, racists and dopes.”‘
