Press Secretary JenPsaki dismisses calls for President Biden to resign: 'Not a day for politics'

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dismissed calls for President Joe Biden to resign in the wake of a terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan that killed 13 U.S. service members, saying that there’s no room for politics in the discussion of the tragedy.

 "I would say, first, this is a day where US service members — 12 of them — lost their lives at the hands of terrorists," Psaki said.

A 13th service member was declared dead following Psaki's remarks. 

"I can confirm that subsequent to Gen. McKenzie's remarks, a thirteenth US service member has died from his wounds suffered as a result of the attack on Abbey Gate," a spokesperson from CENTCOM said. 

"This is a day where U.S. service members, 12 of them, lost their lives at the hands of terrorists," Psaki said during a Thursday briefing. "It is not a day for politics. We would expect that any American, whether they are elected or not, would stand with us in our commitment to going after and fighting and killing those terrorists wherever they live and to honoring the lives of service members, that’s what this day is for."
