With former President Donald Trump allegedly considering another run for the White House in 2024, there would be no time like the present for him to start campaigning – whether overtly or not.
President Joe Biden has been getting hammered in the press early this week, thanks to an ever-worsening humanitarian crisis at the southern border, caused by a surge in migrants who believed that his administration would treat them more kindly than the previous administration would have.
Given just how vehemently Trump campaigned on immigration reform in both 2016 and 2020, it was really only a matter of time before he weighed in on the current situation.
“They’ll be coming up by the millions,” Trump said about the flood of migrants crossing the border into the United States. The former president discussed the border crisis with Fox News host Lisa Boothe in a podcast interview released Monday.
Trump warned Americans the crisis would get far worse during the Biden administration, even though record numbers were already crossing the border.
“It’s nothing compared to what’s going to be in a couple of months,” he said.
Then Trump dropped a familiar sentiment:
“As I said before, you have some very bad hombres coming up and we’re taking them into our country and it’s insane,” Trump said.
Biden’s administration had refused to allow journalists into border detention facilities despite repeated requests, forcing one Democratic lawmaker in Texas to leak photos of the conditions of these sites.
