Former President Donald Trump called on President Joe Biden to "resign in disgrace" after the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan Sunday.

"It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy," Trump said in a statement.

He added, "It shouldn't be a big deal, because he wasn't elected legitimately in the first place."

Earlier Sunday, he issued another statement criticizing the Biden administration over the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

"What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary," he said in the statement. "It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!"

On Sunday, the Afghan military and government fell to the Taliban as insurgent forces entered the capital Kabul after seizing power across the country in just over a week.
