Understandably, it appears the UK has a major problem with Joe Biden.
As President Donald Trump pointed out, Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan as “the greatest embarrassment in the history of our country.”
“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary,” Trump said. “It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!”
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan,” Trump added, “along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.”
American citizens are not the only people dealing with the devastating consequences of Biden’s incompetent and disastrous decision-making. Currently, between 10,000 and 15,000 American citizens are trapped within the borders of a country now controlled by terrorists — the Taliban.
The Taliban has reportedly set up checkpoints and they are beating people who are attempting to reach the airport in order to evacuate.
Other reports say the Taliban is going door-to-door with a “hit list” of Christians to kill. The Taliban is allegedly looking through cell phones and threatening to kill anyone who has the Bible app downloaded.
The U.K. also “faces a desperate race to evacuate 6,000 Britons and eligible Afghans amid scenes of stampeding crowds and Islamist fanatics,” the Daily Mail reports.
The British Houses of Parliament decided to hold Biden’s handling of the situation in contempt.
Lawmakers condemning his withdrawal plan as “catastrophic” and “shameful,” according to The Telegraph.
What is Biden doing during this time of crisis?
He’s spending significant time on vacation. As Daily Wire notes, “Biden has avoided answering questions from reporters during two brief sets of remarks that he gave to the media this week and he has spent a significant portion of time during this crisis on vacation in Delaware, where his administration refuses to disclose who he meets with.”
Biden is spending his time on vacation and refusing to take questions from the press while thousands of Americans are reportedly trapped in Afghanistan as the region falls under control of the Taliban.

Members of parliament from across the political spectrum were forceful in their rebuke of Biden.
“The American decision to withdraw was not just a mistake — it was an avoidable mistake, from President Trump’s flawed deal with the Taliban to President Biden’s decision to proceed, and to proceed in such a disastrous way,” Liberal Democrat Leader Sir Ed Davey said.
Other liberal members of parliament, including Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer and Labour MPs Chris Bryant and Khalid Mahmood, denounced the president as well.
“The Biden government have just come in and, without looking at what is happening on the ground, have taken a unilateral decision, throwing us and everybody else to the fire,” Mahmood said.
Many of these MPs took specific offense to Biden’s criticism of Afghan soldiers and the Afghan army.
The Tory chairman of the foreign affairs committee, Tom Tugendhat, spent some time fighting alongside those soldiers, so he didn’t mince any words when addressing the president’s “shameful” comments.
“To see their commander in chief call into question the courage of men I fought with, to claim that they ran, is shameful,” he said, with The Telegraph noting that several MPs murmured in approval.
