Statement on Biden and Afghanistan Withdrawal
RAPID CITY, S.D.(Press Release)- “Today we observe the Taliban-imposed deadline for American withdrawal from Afghanistan, and even Biden Administration officials acknowledge that there are hundreds of Americans, probably more, now trapped by our enemies.
The withdrawal has been a complete disaster from start to finish. President Biden has not only handed the Taliban tens of billions of dollars in high-tech weapons and equipment, he has demonstrated that our allies can’t trust America under this Administration. And he has needlessly spent the lives of American servicemen and women in a shameful end to our longest war.
As a veteran, I join those calling on President Biden and Vice President Harris to resign. If they will not, Congress should proceed with impeachment.”
