Best Answer

President Nixon campaigned on a platform of ending the Vietnam War, and the Congressional cutoff of funding for combat troops occurred a year before Ford became President. It was already clear that the victory of the North Vietnamese was inevitable, so it really wasn't an issue of "cutting and running."
