Former US President Donald Trump called on his successor Joe Biden to resign after the Taliban take over collapsed the Afghan government.
Trump, in a statement on Sunday, said that it was time for the incumbent US president, Joe Biden, to resign, “for what he has allowed happening in Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID-19, the border catastrophe, the destruction of energy Independence, and our crippled economy.”
The former US president also said that it “shouldn’t be a big deal” since, according to Trump’s version of events, Biden “wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place!”.
Trump’s statement comes after the Afghanistan government collapsed on Sunday with President Ashraf Ghani leaving the country and the Taliban’s entry into the capital, the New York Times reported.
Taliban militants have assumed control of the Afghan capital of Kabul and have taken control of the presidential palace and the insurgency will soon proclaim the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the White House advisors are discussing how President Joe Biden should address the worsening crisis in Afghanistan, however, no final decision has been taken yet about whether he should return to Washington from his planned August vacation.
A protest was also held out the White House with demonstrators blaming Joe Biden for betraying the people of the war-torn country and demand for sanctioning Pakistan as hundreds of people protested Sunday afternoon outside the White House.
The world is shocked into silence as they witness the Taliban who now call themselves the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan takes over Afghanistan. The Taliban released a statement on Twitter saying they want peace with all:
We assured all embassies, diplomatic centers, institutions and places and foreign nationals in Kabul that they will not face any danger.
Let everyone be in Kabul with full confidence, the forces of the Islamic Emirate are tasked with strengthening the security of Kabul and all other cities.
به همه سفارت خانه ها، مراکز دپلوماتیک، مؤسسات و اماکن بود وباش اتباع خارجی در کابل اطمینا میدهیم که هیچ گونه خطر مواجه آنها نخواهد بود.
همه با اطمینان کامل در کابل بودوباش نمایند، نیروهای امارت اسلامی مؤظف شده اند که امنیت شهر کابل و تمام شهرها را مستحکم نمایند.
