Donald Trump has issued a statement calling for Joe Biden to “resign in disgrace” over the Taliban’s advances in Afghanistan.
Donald Trump has issued a statement calling for US President Joe Biden to resign over the Taliban’s advances in Afghanistan.
Mr Trump also gave several other reasons he thinks his successor should “resign in disgrace”, including Covid-19, the border crisis, and the “destruction” of US energy independence.
He appeared to blame Mr Biden for the Taliban’s surge in Afghanistan as the US continues to pull troops out.
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he allowed to happen in Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in Covid, the border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” the statement said.
“It shouldn’t be a big deal, because he wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place!”
Mr Trump has been highly critical of how Mr Biden is handling the situation in Afghanistan.
On Saturday, he issued another statement accusing the current president of getting it “wrong every time on foreign policy”.
“Everyone knew he couldn’t handle the pressure. Even Obama’s Secretary of Defence, Robert Gates, said as much,” the statement said.
“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.”
