Figures across the GOP have urged Joe Biden to be held responsible for the attacks at the Kabul airport and called for his resignation. Reports on Thursday detailed the calls, including a tweet by former UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
Haley asserted Biden should step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan. However, she acknowledged it would leave Kamala Harris in charge and added Harris would be 10 times worse.
GOP conference Chair Elise Stefanik said Biden has blood on his hands. She went on to say the “national security and humanitarian disaster” was the result of his incompetent leadership.
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.

This is on top of around a dozen Republicans, who have called for Biden’s resignation or impeachment amid the Afghan crisis.
