Trump proved himself to be a branding genius and excellent judge of popular sentiment on Tuesday, June 15th, when he released a statement saying that he will visit the border since Kamala and Joe won’t. Here’s what he said:
“I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our Nation’s decimated Southern Border on Wednesday, June 30, 2021. The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S history. It’s an unmitigated disaster zone.
We went from detain-and-remove to catch-and-release. We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world. Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes. Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign. Hospitals and schools are getting crushed and public health is being sacrificed all in service of a radical left anti-borders agenda. Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs. Our Nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the U.S interior on a daily basis.
If this weren’t bad enough, Biden and Harris won’t even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created, or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make their job totally impossible.
What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty. My visit will hopefully shine a spotlight on these crimes against our Nation—and show the incredible people of ICE and Border Patrol that they have our unshakeable support.”
Trump is amazing. He’s right; the Biden Administration, especially Kamala Harris, has done a terrible job with the border. Rather that protect Americans and keep taxpayers safe, they’ve opened the border and let illegal immigrants stream into our once-great nation.
But he’s more than right, he’s also brave. Few former presidents, forced to leave office because of the perfidy of their opponents, would have the cajones to visit the border and stand up for what is right. They’d slink into hiding, resigned to live out the rest of their lives bitterly.
Despite being temporarily out of the White House, he’s ready to go back out there and stand up for his homeland. Good for him. He’s calling out Biden, drawing attention to a major problem, and standing up for America.
