Former President Donald Trump says he may be visiting the U.S-Mexico border soon to observe the current border crisis.
“A lot of people want me to,” said Trump on an interview with Fox News Saturday night.
“They want me there, they’ve asked me to go, and I really sort of feel I owe it to them. They’re great people, they’re doing an incredible job. It’s impossible now with what [the Biden administration has] done,” said Trump.
President Joe Biden rolled back many of Trump’s policies designed to reduce the number of illegal immigrants coming into the country.
Trump believes the crisis will get worse.
“Thousands and thousands of people are coming up right now as we speak,” said Trump. “And you’re gonna have millions of people pouring into our country, and it’s going to destroy our country”
“I don’t know what they’re doing, and they don’t know what they’re doing,” continued Trump. “It’s a very, very dangerous situation. I’d love not to be involved. Somebody else is supposed to be doing it.”
When asked about Trump’s interest in visiting the border, Biden said he did not care.
“I don’t care what the other guy does,” said Biden.
Biden says that he is “supposed to go” to the border, adding that “I’m not looking to have a race, I’m looking to get a problem solved.”
“I’m not sure that I really should do it, other than the fact that I have such respect for the Border Patrol and for ICE,” said Biden.
Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to the border soon.
“At some point, absolutely we will go down to the border,” said Harris during an interview with CBS last week. “And I’ve been down to the border and our secretary of the Homeland Security, Alex Mayorkas, has been down there twice. Senior administration officials have been down there and yes, we will go.”
“But the reality also is that in addition to the border, we also need to deal with the root causes. We need to deal with what’s happening in the Northern Triangle and address it in a way that is about not only diplomacy but bringing our allies together,” continued Harris. “Dealing with what we need to do around aid in a way that is about developing those countries so that we also deal with the cause of why people are coming into our country.”
