Republican lawmakers are pressing President Joe Biden and his administration for answers regarding Americans in Afghanistan, as reports of a hostage situation develop.
Joe Biden abandoned Americans in Afghanistan. Members of Congress, including me and my office, have been working around the clock to get them out – and for days Biden's State Dept. couldn't even get out of its own way. Now there are deeply disturbing reports of a hostage crisis. https://t.co/EMGd5wWGxs

We warned all Americans stranded by President Biden would be hostages of the Taliban.
The Taliban is now making demands before allowing some to leave.
What's President Biden doing?
He's vacationing in Delaware.
This failed president must resign immediately or be impeached. https://t.co/zobvTTbq16

The Taliban is now holding Americans hostage.
Where is our Commander-in-chief? https://t.co/MocycksYI2

President Biden left Americans stranded.
Americans are now being held as hostages by the Taliban.
President Biden is on vacation.
This is disgraceful. https://t.co/8JkhmiiNhk

The frustration is palpable.
