Last week former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley called for President Joe Biden to resign after the devastating attacks at the Hamid Karzai Airport. Sunday night in an appearance on “Sunday Night in America”, she doubled down on those comments.
“The situation with Afghanistan is beyond disgusting,” Haley said. “Look at where we are now, first, the jihadists have a moral victory, that’s for Al-Qaeda and ISIS and Taliban…not just in Afghanistan but in the world. That’s going to allow them to recruit and allow more lone wolf situations. It will be more dangerous.”
Haley said she was more concerned about “what our allies are saying” behind our backs after Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“Did you ever think that NATO was thinking about doing things without the US? Haley asked, adding that “now our allies are having conversations without us.”
“The fact that the British and French have gone out of their way to get their citizens out and we’re telling our Americans, ‘hey, by the way, don’t come to the airport,’ doesn’t bode well for the country on the international stage,” Haley said.
“All of this has been catastrophic for America. It is not a good look,” said Haley. “It is not a good time, it is not a safe feeling, we have to do something about it–we can’t sit back. We can’t be victims. As a wife of a combat veteran, the military families are bonded in our sadness because this did not have to happen.”
Last week Haley called for Biden to resign but at the same time expressed serious concern about Vice President Kamala Harris being in charge.
“Should Biden step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan? Yes,” she tweeted. “But that would leave us with Kamala Harris which would be ten times worse. God help us.”
