President Joe Biden has come under huge criticism for going to Delaware for the holiday weekend amid the crisis in Afghanistan.
The president was scheduled to visit his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware two weeks ago but had his journey pushed back due to the withdrawal from Afghanistan and Hurricane Henri.
But after touring the destruction of Hurricane Ida in Lousiana, Joe Biden decided it was time to take a break back home for the holiday weekend, but the move was slammed by Republicans who called the president out for flying home amid the crisis in Afghanistan, where hundreds of citizens and allies had been left behind, due to the botched removal and evacuation from the country.
Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tweeted that American citizens were still stranded behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, and meanwhile, Joe Biden is vacationing in Delaware, and he said that Joe Biden left Americans hostage in Afghanistan.
Alabama Representative Mo Brooks also pointed to the Americans who were left behind, and he tweeted that Joe Biden would be spending his weekend on holiday in Delaware, while approximately 100 Americans will be spending their weekend abandoned in Afghanistan.
New York Congresswoman Claudia Tenney criticised Joe Biden’s trip, while calling for him to be held accountable for the $85 billion of military equipment that was left behind in Afghanistan.
She posted that Joe Biden was a career politician who’s only ever worked in DC, but for the rest, they were responsible for the equipment that they used at work, and that if they lose it, they pay for it. Joe Biden lost $85 billion in military equipment and then left for vacation, and that Congress must hold him accountable.
Republicans also mentioned other problems that the country was facing, including migrants at the US Mexico border and the residents of New Orleans who were still left without power.
Karine Jean-Pierre, White House deputy press secretary, said on Friday that Joe Biden was dealing with many multiple crises, but she said this was the role of the president, to make sure we keep working and said that they had addressed multiple crises at the same time.
On Thursday, Senate Republicans accused the White House of evacuating thousands of Afghans from the country while leaving American citizens and allies behind.
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken revealed that up to 200 Americans were still stranded in Afghanistan even though the last US flight left the country a day before the evacuation deadline.
And now, Joe Biden is attempting to distance himself from it, saying everything went great, expecting that folks believe it.
Joe Biden isn’t supposed to answer questions, he’s just an empty suit, and he’s just a corpse that hardly even knows who he is and this guy’s got nuclear codes! But don’t worry, he can’t remember where he put them.
And to think, the American’s put a man on the Moon, but Joe Biden can’t manage to get American’s out of Afghanistan.
President Joe Biden is a disgrace with crisis after crisis during his short term in office.
Hundreds of people have died and hundreds of people are critically injured due to his bad planning, and all we have seen of Joe Biden is the bald spot on the back of his head as he walks away when he’s asked questions.
And he didn’t even answer the phone for two days while on vacation when Boris Johnson called to ask him why he was removing the military, and now he’s back on holiday while more than 200 Americans are still behind enemy lines.
Joe Biden said that no American would be left behind, and he said it many times, yet here he is, leaving Americans behind.
He can’t defend this, he lied and to everyone’s faces, and where’s the respect he promised?
