Trump Demands Biden Fire Lloyd Austin For ‘Dereliction of duty’

Finish The Race is reporting that Former President Donald Trump called for Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to be fired for “dereliction of duty” on Monday after Austin failed to notify the White House and other important figures of his hospitalization last week.

Trump claimed the secretary was missing for almost one week without many officials knowing where he was. Austin has been hospitalized at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center since Jan. 1 for complications following an elective surgery.

The hospitalization included time in the intensive care unit, but details on the procedure have not been released.

“Failed Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin should be fired immediately for improper professional conduct and dereliction of duty,” Trump posted on his social media platform Truth Social. “He has been missing for one week, and nobody, including his boss, Crooked Joe Biden, had a clue as to where he was, or might be. He has performed poorly, and should have been dismissed long ago, along with ‘General’ Mark Milley, for many reasons, but in particular the catastrophic surrender in Afghanistan, perhaps the most embarrassing moment in the history of our Country!”

Glenn Beck’s morning show also addressed the issue:

Key Republican senators, on the other hand, are holding off on joining former President Trump’s call for Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to be removed from office, though they are heaping criticism on the nation’s Defense chief for waiting days to tell the White House of his hospitalization.

Senior members of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s (Ky.) leadership team are calling Austin’s unexplained absence “a dereliction of duty” and “unacceptable” but aren’t yet willing to go as far as Trump in calling for his ouster.
