Senators Josh Hawley and Marsha Blackburn both took to twitter to call on the president to step down.
“We must reject the falsehood peddled by a feckless president that this was the only option for withdrawal,” Senator Hawley wrote.
“This is the product of Joe Biden’s catastrophic failure of leadership.
“It is now painfully clear he has neither the will nor the capacity to lead. He must resign,”
Senator Blackburn tweeted that President Biden, Vice President Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley should all resign.
Speaking with reporters later in the day, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dismissed the calls for the president to resign is “not a day for politics.”
