“Here’s what I say in response to Speaker John BoehnerJohn Andrew BoehnerTrump's pick for Federal Reserve chief is right choice at right time The two-party system is dying — let’s put it out of its misery One year later, neither party can get past last year's election MORE stepping down: Mitch McConnell, it is now your turn," Jindal, who is running for president, said on Friday at the Values Voter Summit, an event for social conservatives.

“If Sen. McConnell is not willing to fight for our conservative principles, he needs to follow John Boehner’s example,” Jindal said.

The GOP presidential hopeful also demanded both Boehner and McConnell “surrender their gavels."

He additionally called for the entire House of Representatives to be ousted.

“That’s one down, that’s 434 more to go,” Jindal said. “Folks, it is time to fire everybody in D.C.”

Boehner unexpectedly announced Friday morning that he would resign from Congress at the end of October.

Jindal has previously attacked congressional Republicans over their inability to defund Planned Parenthood, saying at the second GOP presidential debate that “it is time to be done with the Republican Party.”
