Donald Trump criticizes Joe Biden's border policies
Former President Donald Trump was criticized for his hardline stance on immigration, including the highly criticized separation of migrant children from their families at the border. As his successor Joe Biden looks to stem the migration crisis his administration is facing, Trump criticized his border policies.
Speaking with Dick Morris in the right-wing outlet Newsmax, Trump accused Biden of “destroying” the country with his border policies that look to undo his own. The former president said that had Biden not done anything to the current status of the southern border, the US would remain closed to migrants looking to enter the country. Trump also questioned whether his successor was implementing policies out of incompetence or pursuing open borders through stealth.
“If he would have done nothing, we would have had right now the strongest border in history,” said Trump, referencing the wall he pledged to build to keep southern migrants out. “All he had to do is nothing.”
Trump added that he had already sorted out issues with countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the latter three also known as the Northern Triangle. His administration was able to staunch the flow of illegal migrants entering the US. Following Biden’s election victory and inauguration, the southern border experienced a record influx of migrants looking to enter the country.
Since February 2021, around 200,000 migrants have crossed along the southern border and into the US. Trump said that Biden’s approach only encouraged more migrants to enter the country.
In other news, Trump will be having a highway named after him in Oklahoma. Last week, Governor Kevin Stitt signed the proposal that would rename a 20-mile stretch of US 287 between Boise City and the Oklahoma-Texas border after the former president. The proposal was derailed momentarily when the state’s Senate Minority Leader, Democrat Kay Floyd, pointed out that state law requires the person to be deceased for three years before any highway or bridge can be named after them.
It should be noted that the only exception to the rule would be Medal of Honor recipients. However, in an unprecedented move, Republicans in the state legislature skirted the state rules to pass the proposal to name the highway after Trump.
