House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) continues his criticism of President Biden’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan by saying the president of the United States should not take orders from terrorists.
While President Biden retreats from Afghanistan in order to meet the Taliban’s arbitrary deadline of August 31, he is abandoning American civilians still stranded there.
The Commander-in-Chief should not take orders from terrorists.

Outrage has been expressed by Republican leadership in both houses of Congress. McCarthy and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) have both used strong terms of condemnation to describe the Biden administration’s management of the situation in Afghanistan.
The manner in which President Biden is cutting and running from Afghanistan is a colossal failure. He continues to communicate to the world that, on his watch, the greatest superpower in world history will let terrorists and thugs push us around. My full statement: pic.twitter.com/5G0WJNYTFJ

We lost more service members yesterday than any single day in the last decade.
President Biden put them in harm's way.
His administration owes the American people answers. pic.twitter.com/lFfqP7LAFA
