An ex-aide to former President Donald Trump, Jason Miller, said Trump might go to the Southern Border to address President Joe Biden’s immigration “disaster” in a podcast interview.
Miller said on The Michael Berry Show, “We discussed that recently, I could see him doing that soon. Not immediately, but I could see a trip, some point in the future here, but it is something that President Trump is really concerned about.”
He continued, “I think that President Trump wanted to let Joe Biden go and fail on his own before he goes and steps in on that. I think there’s a very fine line between calling someone out on their policies and then appearing to do something that’s showboating. Not immediately, but I could see a trip at some point in the future here, but it is something that President Trump is really concerned about.”
In an interview with Laura Inghram on Fox News, Trump said, “These children and people are, tremendous number of children by the way, and they are living on top of each other. In squalor. It is squalor. They’re living in very dangerous conditions, there’s no testing for Covid-19. That’s why they won’t allow the press to come in. We let the press go in.”
In Biden’s first press conference, he said he was planning to visit the border.
“As soon as I’m in a position to be able to implement what we are doing right now. One of the reasons I haven’t gone down, all my chief folks are going down, is I don’t want to become the issue,” he said.
