Trump May Visit US-Mexico Border To Witness 'Crisis' For Himself, Aide Says
Trump 'really concerned' about the current crisis
President Donald Trump is "really concerned" about the current crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border and could soon visit the region, according to a former aide.
Jason Miller said during an appearance on the podcast of conservative talk show host Michael Berry:
"I could see him doing that soon," Miller said.
"Not immediately, but I could see a trip, some point in the future here, but it is something that [former] President Trump is really concerned about."
Trump has not toured the areas since leaving office in January because he wished to give President Biden time to "fail on his own" on immigration issues, Miller said.
Miller noted that if Trump criticized Biden publically, it could give Biden the opportunity to complain that Trump was "making a scene."
"I think there’s a very fine line between calling someone out on their policies and then appearing to do something that’s showboating," Miller told Berry, according to WJR.
Miller referred to Kamala Harris as "Mrs. Open Borders," in response to recent reports she was appointed to lead border efforts amid the surge in migrants.
Last week, Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said Harris was "the worst possible choice” to manage the growing crisis and the U.S-Mexico border.
Ducey said during a speech at the University of Arizona:
“She’s about the worst possible choice that one could make."
“In no point in her career has she given any indication that she considers the border a problem or a serious threat.”
Trump blasted Biden's crisis at the border, saying his strategy "turned national triumph into a national disaster"
Trump said in a March 21 statement:
"We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot."
"Instead, in the span of just a few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster."
"They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast."
