Trump: Biden’s Border Crisis Could 'Destroy' the United States
'What they’re doing is insane. They’re going to destroy our country'
Donald Trump took aim at Joe Biden and the ongoing border crisis, warning it could “destroy our country" if it is not fixed.
Trump was asked "how dangerous” the situation on the border and how the media would react if Trump were president and “cages” were “overflowing with kids in the middle of a pandemic.”
“They would not stand for it," Trump said.
"And they’re playing it down as much as they can play it down."
"It’s a horrible situation, could destroy our country,” Trump added.
“People are pouring in."
"But you’ll see something as the months go by like you’ve never seen before," he continued.
"Already, it’s like you’ve never seen before.
"There’s never been anything like what’s happened at our border.
"And people are coming in by the tens of thousands.”
“They’re walking in … all they had to do was leave it alone,” Trump continued.
“If he’d left it alone, we were setting record positive numbers. And people would have to come in legally."
"And, you know, the other thing that people don’t talk about you, human trafficking and drugs.
"That’s double, triple, then quadruples coming in because that’s pouring in right now. Drugs are pouring in.”
“We had it so tight, we were doing so well," he added.
"All he had to do was leave it alone.
"Stay in Mexico was a big deal.
"You know, that wasn’t easy to get.
"We went through court systems."
"We went through everything,” Trump continued.
“The wall, getting the wall built and the wall we — we’re up to almost 500 miles and completing it was very easy. That was going to be just routine."
"It would have been done routinely. The contracts were already there, the materials there, it was going to be done very quickly."
"And we got delayed for two-and-a-half years because we were sued by Nancy Pelosi and Congress not to build the wall."
"I wanted to see if we want all of this as we want everything. And then they don’t finish the wall.”
Trump also blasted Biden for axing the travel ban, which prevented those traveling to the US from terrorism hotspots.
“They’re ending the ban,” Trump said.
“They’ve already ended it so that people can come in from dangerous countries. But if you take a look at what’s happening with the Middle East, many people from the Middle East are coming in through our southern border alongside of Mexico."
"What they’re doing is insane.
"They’re going to destroy our country.”
