Following the lead of President Donald Trump, Republicans have come forward to formally demand Joe Biden resign.
Republicans in Congress have pledged to hold the Biden administration accountable for the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
Biden’s horrible decisions led to a deadly bombing that took the lives of 13 U.S. service members and 170 Afghan citizens.
Biden abandoned between 100 and 250 Americans in the region as the final U.S. soldier left.
The city of Kabul was surrendered to terrorists in the Taliban who will undoubtedly wreak havoc on their own people as well as Americans and anyone who assisted western forces.
Biden shamelessly stood by his decision.
House Republicans will put forth a bill by Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin.
Gallagher seeks to help the Americans remaining in Afghanistan as well as hold the Biden administration accountable.
“Mike Gallagher’s bill does four simple things,” House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy of Califorinia said.
“What is the plan to bring Americans home safely? Not some, but every single American? What about the list of the weaponry that has been left behind, accounting for that?”
“We now have Americans stuck in Afghanistan, the Taliban in charge with more weaponry than they’ve ever had in the past, and a border that is open,” McCarthy added.
Trump also called on Biden to resign from office “in disgrace.”
“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary,” Trump said. “It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!”
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” Trump said.
Trump released a statement over the situation in Afghanistan:
“Joe Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy, and many other issues. Everyone knew he couldn’t handle the pressure. Even Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said as much.”
“He ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him — a plan that protected our people and our property, and ensured the Taliban would never dream of taking our Embassy or providing a base for new attacks against America. The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.”

The bill also asks that the Taliban not be recognized as the government of Afghanistan and seeks to prohibit any support or assistance to the Taliban…
Other Republicans that spoke included Gallagher; Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill.; Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas; Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala.; Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla.; Rep. Mark Green, R-Tenn.; Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind.; Rep. Mike Wallace, R-Fla.; and Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas.
Gallagher ripped the Democrats for not supporting the bill, which he claimed sought the same ends the Democrats had recently asked for publicly.
“This is exactly what many Democrats said they wanted,” Gallagher said. “They pushed back on the administration. They begged and pleaded the president to abandon the Taliban’s surrender date.”
“But when the moment of truth came on the House floor, they all voted against it so as not to jeopardize the passage of Bernie Sanders’ budget,” he added.
Republicans also ripped House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for not being present for either the vote or for a moment of silence for the 13 fallen service members.
“Where is Nancy Pelosi?” Banks asked. “Why isn’t she here? Each and every one of us changed our plans so that we could be here today.”
“We just had a moment of silence on the floor of the House of Representatives for the … American heroes that we lost in Afghanistan,” he continued. “Not a single Democrat joined us on the floor of the House and that moment of silence, and that is a shame, but perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.”
