Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst blamed President Joe Biden for that fall of Afghanistan in the hands of Taliban.
“This is a very grim reality, not just for the United States but for so many of our partners around the world to see Afghanistan fall like this. It is all on President Biden’s shoulders,” Ernst said Friday on Fox News.
“This rapid and haphazard withdrawal of American troops, of course, before we knew that our embassy would be safe, before we had our Afghan interpreters and other friends out of Afghanistan, to allow it to fall like this without any sort of plan or recourse, it is shameful,” continued Ernst.
“This is all on President Biden. This did not have to happen, and we just have to pick up and decide, what are we going to do now? We have women, girls that are being threatened by the Taliban, others that are being killed by the Taliban. We know that there are many other violent extremist organizations that are reconstituting in Afghanistan as we speak. This is a sincere tragedy for everyone.”
