U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) has issued a statement demanding President Joe Biden's "immediate" resignation for his "haphazard decision to withdraw from Afghanistan."

A CBS News/YouGov poll released Sunday finds 63% of Americans support the decision to withdraw from Afghanistan – a decision that dates back to then-President Donald Trump, and one that President Biden had little choice but to carry out.

President Biden has now airlifted out a massive number of people from Afghanistan, and getting high marks for that effort – despite how the mainstream and right wing press characterized the withdrawal.

"President Joseph R. Biden has abdicated his responsibility and duties entrusted to him as President of the United States. This blatant abdication of his office is grounds for President Biden to resign immediately," Donalds says in his statement, falsely.

Before posting his statement, Donalds hyped it up on social media.

The White House Chief of Staff says more than 37,000 have been evacuated:

Donalds also grandstanded his "objection to the Electoral College certification."

Two years ago as a state lawmaker Donalds was one of seven Republicans who pushed four anti-LGBTQ bills.
