Former President Donald Trump has slammed Biden’s handling of China, the Middle East, and the border problem, saying “they’re destroying our country.”
Speaking on Newsmax‘s “Dick Morris Democracy” on Saturday, May 29, Trump said that Biden overruled his term’s efforts on the U.S.–Mexico border, resulting in the current crisis.
“If he would have done nothing, we would have had right now the strongest border in history,” Trump said to host Dick Morris.
“I had everything worked out with the other countries, whether it’s Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico,” Trump said. “And even Mexico, stay in Mexico. In other words, these people ought to stay in Mexico, and they couldn’t get into our country.”
“And he ended that,” he said of Biden. “It’s just crazy what they did.”
Many of Trump’s immigration policies were reversed by Biden, notably the “stay in Mexico” policy, which obliged asylum claimants to wait through the legal procedure in their native country.
According to Trump, officials in the Northern Triangle countries are emptying their cells so the convicts can fly into the United States.
“We had the strongest in the history of our country,” Trump said. “Very few people [crossing]. Drugs were way down. Human trafficking was almost stopped.”
“You take a look at what’s happening now. And let me tell you: They’re letting people from prisons. They’re opening their prisons. Their prisoners are coming in, their murderers, their drug addicts, and drug dealers, by the way,” he said.
“And the human traffickers are coming in. They’re letting them in. They want them in. They don’t want them in their country, so they’re saying, ‘send them to the USA,” Trump went on.
Trump also slammed Biden and the Democratic Party in Congress for their tepid support for Israel after being attacked by Hamas militants before a ceasefire on May 20 following 11 days of fighting.
“I think what’s happened to Israel is one of the great injustices,” he said. “If you look back 10 or 12 years ago, Israel was so protected by Congress. Congress loved Israel.”
“Now, especially if you looked at the House, the House doesn’t like Israel. The House is protective of anything other than Israel.”
Progressive House Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and “The Squad” members chastised Biden for not taking a harder line in supporting Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.
