The Chinese spy balloon scandal, according to Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has made it clear that both Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden should step down from their positions.
After a U.S. fighter jet knocked down a Chinese surveillance balloon off the coast of the lawmaker’s home state of South Carolina, Wilson called for Biden and Harris to resign. Over the previous seven days, the unmanned surveillance aircraft had traveled from Alaska through Canada, then across the continent from Idaho to the East Coast.
Wilson tweeted that “President Biden and Vice President Harris should resign” in response to the “catastrophic Chinese Spy Balloon extravaganza,” which “obviously harmed American families from Alaska to my home community in South Carolina.” “The surrender and disastrous departure from Afghanistan provided a safe sanctuary for terrorists to kill American families, making my call for their resignation valid in August 2021,” I said.

“It was not political in 2021 when Speaker Nancy Pelosi would have been the succeeding President and a Democrat, nor is it political now in 2023 with Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a Republican. Regardless of whose party is in power, the primary criterion for a leader should be their capability, and regrettably, Biden and Harris are failures, so it makes no difference to American families which party is in power “the legislator from South Carolina added.
Wilson continued by saying that Biden and Harris’ “open border policies,” which have undermined national security, only serve to strengthen the case for their resignation.
He stated, “Biden and Harris will not be able to appropriately respond when the domestic attack occurs. “To defend American families, credible leadership is essential.”
Along with Wilson, a number of GOP members have criticized the Biden administration recently and following Saturday’s balloon shooting, labeling the president’s response as inadequate.
“Why was it permitted to spread all the way throughout the nation for so many days? You see, one of the largest things any government can do is to protect its citizens. It is a fundamental duty of the government “Another South Carolina Republican congressman, Rep. Russell Fry, said Fox News.
Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., the senior Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that it was obvious that the customary procedure for protecting American airspace had been disregarded. “If press accounts are accurate, the Biden Administration intended to keep the American people in the dark about this tragedy from the beginning. I’m determined to quickly obtain the clarifications that the White House owes to Congress and the American people regarding this debacle.”
Biden told reporters that he had instructed the Pentagon to bring the balloon down “as soon as feasible” on Wednesday after it was shot down on Saturday. They had postponed because they were concerned that if the balloon’s debris fell close to a populated area, it may do significant harm.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated in a statement that “after rigorous consideration, U.S. military leaders had assessed that downing the balloon while above land constituted an unreasonable risk to people across a large region due to the size and altitude of the balloon and its surveillance payload.”
The Department of Defense created options to deflate the balloon over our territorial seas safely in compliance with the President’s directives, attentively monitoring its course and intelligence gathering activities.
