Senator Joni Ernst, a republican from Iowa, has officially called for President Joe Biden to resign.
When asked the reason why, it’s clear Joe’s premature evacuation from Afghanistan was on the forefront of her mind.
“We have 13 dead Americans because what the president did.”
Ernst went on to say that all of this falls on Joe Biden’s shoulders. He’s the President, Commander-In-Chief… whatever you want to call it. The decision-making stops with him. As a result, so should the responsibility.
“I can’t point the finger at anybody that was serving in Afghanistan, because I think they were providing their best military advice through the chain of command, all the way up to the top. Our president, Joe Biden, is one that chose not to follow their best military advice. He’s the one that gave that order. He’s the one that needs to go.”
“It falls on the president’s shoulders,” Senator Ernst added. “He is the commander-in-chief. He did give lawful orders. You can’t disobey lawful orders, but I would say that these political appointees need to go. They need to come out. Secretary Blinken is one that I think needs to be held accountable. He continues to tell us that we’ve only got a hundred Americans left in Afghanistan, and yet we have plane loads of Americans coming out of Afghanistan every week. Sounds like we should have all Americans out of this point, but we know that’s not true.”
