Former President Donald Trump Sunday called on President Joe Biden to “resign in disgrace” over his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and other issues.

“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,” the former president wrote in a statement.

The Taliban has rapidly taken control of most of the country as insurgent forces enter the capital city of Kabul, where U.S. troops have been sent to evacuate the embassy.

Mobs of panicked people can be seen at the Kabul airport frantically trying to flee the city on Sunday.

Trump’s administration had negotiated the terms of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan by May 1. Trump even considered withdrawing troops from the region before leaving office.

When President Biden announced that he planned to fully withdraw troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, he was slammed by Trump who insisted Biden “keep as close” as possible to his own goal of getting the troops out on May 1.

Trump also bashed Biden over other issues like the border crisis and current surge of COVID-19 cases.

I made early withdraw possible by already pulling much of our billions of dollars of equipment out and, more importantly, reducing our military presence to less than 2,000 troops from the 16,000 level that was there (likewise in Iraq, and zero troops in Syria except for the area where we KEPT THE OIL),” he said in an email to supporters in April.

Republicans have blasted Biden for the current crisis in the country, where the U.S. had maintained a presence for 20 years.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said the US troop pullout has been “an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions” on Sunday.

Biden was also criticized by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who told Fox News the situation would not have happened if Trump was still in office on Thursday.

  • Biden should resign over this, and his capitulation to Russia over Nord Stream. Had Trump won the election and withdrawn US troops by May 1, would the outcome have been any different, would Trump have resigned? I think this reaction by Trump is more to do with the fact that recent polls in the US show 70% of the public support US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    • Trump and Biden share equal blame for this catastrophe. The savages could have been kept at bay indefinitely if a minimal US/UK presence of ground troops and air support had been maintained. It probably would have taken another 20 years to get Afghanistan standing on its own two feet and it would have been worth it in terms of minimisation of terror attacks in the west and abuse of women and girls inside Afghanistan. Even worse, this may cause yet another ‘refugee crisis’; as if there wasn’t a big enough crisis already. Britain would have continued if they could have found other coalitionists to chip in. No one did. Our losses were terrible enough, but the truth is we haven’t lost any more since 2015.
      Putler ‘peacekeepers’ will be in place soon.

  • “Republicans have blasted Biden for the current crisis in the country, where the U.S. had maintained a presence for 20 years”
    The disaster that the old fool created at our southern border is just as much a reason to dump the goat. Add to this his servitude to the Moscow mongrel and the Stasi bitch.
