Trump on Border Crisis: U.S. 'Will Soon Be Considered a Third World Nation'
'There has never been anything like what is happening at our Border'
Donald Trump warned that the current crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border will soon turn the United States into a "Third World Nation."
Trump said in a statement on Monday:
"The United States will soon be considered a Third World Nation."
"There has never been anything like what is happening at our Border."
"Millions of people have already poured in, but many more than that are coming!"
Over the weekend, Trump said the U.S is "rapidly becoming a cesspool of humanity."
He stated that "murderers, drug dealers, and criminals" were pouring into the country from Haiti, including South American and African countries.
Trump's remarks come as thousands of Haitian immigrants recently arrived at the U.S. southern border.

Approximately 15,000 illegal aliens had flooded the area in recent days, and there were few signs of the situation getting better.
The New York Times reported that local officials have described the scene as one resembling “a shantytown, with little access to clean water and food and just a few portable toilets.”
“Our #bordercrisis goes beyond the RGV and South TX communities — the smuggling of drugs, people, and weapons reaches far and wide, and it affects all of us. I will continue to work tirelessly to secure our border and protect the people of Texas." — @GregAbbott_TX pic.twitter.com/2kMkse29l2— Texas DPS (@TxDPS) September 18, 2021
On Sunday, Biden enjoyed a leisurely bike ride near a Delaware beach despite the border crisis.
According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the border agents encountered 208,887 migrants in August.
Last month, the Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration’s attempt to overturn a district judge’s reimplementation of Trump's “Remain in Mexico,” which requires migrants to reside in Mexico until their hearing in the U.S.
