A growing chorus of high-profile GOP political figures have joined the push to call for Democrat President Joe Biden’s resignation – as well as the resignation of other regime officials over the latter’s disastrous handling of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan. A terrorist attack killed at least 12 U.S. servicemen on Thursday after Biden extended the withdrawal deadline.
Republican Sens. Josh Hawley (MO), Marsha Blackburn (TN), and Roger Marshall (KS) have called for Biden’s resignation, as well as Reps. Matt Gaetz (GA), Mo Brooks (AL), and Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA). Greene introduced Articles of Impeachment against Biden last Friday following Biden’s decision to extend the Afghanistan withdrawal deadline.
The Biden Administration’s plan to force CRT and vaccines in the military was more comprehensive than their plan to get Americans safely out of Afghanistan.
The American people demand their resignations immediately.

President Biden has embarrassed America with his botched Afghanistan withdrawal. Now his decisions have led to dead Americans in Kabul. Biden should take responsibility for this disgrace and resign immediately. https://t.co/D29VL9mIEB

Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin and General Milley should all resign or face impeachment and removal from office.

As President, it’s Biden’s job to ensure America is so feared & respected that enemies think twice about interfering with our troops & citizens.
Biden has done the exact opposite, and Americans are paying for it.

Joe Biden has blood on his hands.
The buck stops with the President of the United States.
This horrific national security and humanitarian disaster is solely the result of Joe Biden’s weak and incompetent leadership. He is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.

If President Trump can be impeached over a phone call, then the time has come to IMPEACH Biden for gross negligence in Afghanistan. Americans deserve better. We deserve better than someone who willfully IGNORES the WORST crisis in decades.

As National File previously reported, former President Donald Trump released a statement on Thursday slamming Biden after a terrorist attack killed at least 12 U.S. servicemen in Afghanistan:
45th President Donald Trump offered a statement via email addressing the devastating attack on the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan earlier today which led to the deaths of at least 12 members of the United States Armed Forces, while Joe Biden, his White House, and the federal government have remained silent on the deadly bombings.
“Melania and I send our deepest condolences to the families of our brilliant and brave Service Members whose duty to the U.S.A. meant so much to them. Our thoughts are also with the families of the innocent civilians who died today in the savage Kabul attack,” wrote President Trump in a statement released moments ago. “This tragedy should never have been allowed to happen, which makes our grief even deeper and more difficult to understand. May God Bless the U.S.A.”
Biden hosted a poorly-received press conference on Thursday in which held his head in his hands and blamed Trump for the tragedy after pledging to take responsibility.
