Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the United Nations, called for Biden’s resignation but said she is worried about leaving Vice President Kamala Harris in charge.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., called for Biden to resign along with Vice President Kamala Harris and several national security officials.
“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin and General Milley should all resign or face impeachment and removal from office,” she said.
Former Trump White House advisor Kellyanne Conway sarcastically tweeted: “#Impeach? Why? It’s not like they called the President of Ukraine or anything.”
Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, a congress member wrote “If President Trump can be impeached over a phone call, then the time has come to IMPEACH Biden for gross negligence in Afghanistan”
