Rep. Jim Jordan is the latest GOP lawmaker to call for President Joe Biden to resign over his withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.
“What’s happening in Afghanistan is wrong. It is terrible. But frankly, it isn’t surprising because what has this guy done right?” Jordan said, speaking on Fox News on Saturday.
“Everything this guy touches, it goes bad. That’s why I said he should resign.”
“Thirteen service members killed, Americans left behind, allies left behind, billions of dollars of equipment and weapons left behind. And some of the Afghans who have come to America haven’t been properly vetted,” he continued.
With his call for Biden’s resignation, Jordan joins a fast growing list of Republicans who’ve said that the president should be removed from office. At least 20 House Republicans and conservative figures – including Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn and many more others – have called for Biden’s resignation.
Meanwhile the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has dismissed these calls, calling it “playing politics.”
“I would say, first, this is a day where US service members,” she said , “lost their lives at the hands of terrorists.”
“It’s not a day for politics, and we would expect that any American, whether they’re elected or not, would stand with us in our commitment to going after and fighting and killing those terrorists wherever they live, and to honoring the memory of service members. And that’s what this day is for,” Psaki added.
Jim Jordan also slammed the Biden administration Monday on “America Reports” for “ignoring” the migrant surge in Del Rio, Texas, and refusing to embrace Trump-era policies to stem illegal entries at the southern border.
“Obviously they’re ignoring it. We got 13,000 Haitians there in Del Rio, Texas. Obviously, they’re ignoring it. But I thought I find it interesting at the time when we have that, what does the Biden administration announce today? They announce that, oh, for people who come here legally, foreign nationals, you’re going to have to be vaccinated.” he said as reported by fox news.
“And what is the Democrat Congress focused on doing? Trying to give amnesty to 8 million people who came here illegally. The American people are fed up with this. They’d like some leadership from the White House, from President Biden, from Vice President Harris, but they’re certainly not seeing it.”
“This is because the White House is not willing to embrace the policies that work. A full implementation of Title 42, building the wall, going back to the Remain in Mexico policy, those policies that work. The White House won’t embrace it because the hard left won’t let them.” he added.
