During a two-hour-long exclusive interview at Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration was ripped by the former president for allowing what Trump calls an “invasion” at the U.S. border with Mexico, something the former president likened to a “migration of civilization into our country.”
To try to stem the tide of migrants flowing into the country, Biden’s administration and Mexico have been involved in talks over the issue, while also in Washington, lawmakers seek an elusive deal that would fund more aid to Ukraine, which is a Biden administration priority, in exchange for border reforms that Republicans in the Senate want. So Trump did not want to miss the chance to make some comments on the matter, as he said that Biden does not understand the leverage that he says the United States has in negotiations with Mexico. Trump referred to a meeting between Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Mexican foreign minister Alicia Barcena.
This resulted in what Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) called “important agreements.” Trump said: “He [Biden] doesn’t understand anything, they went into Mexico today, hat in hand,” claiming that we have all the power and that they have none. After the meeting, the Biden White House shared the joint communication, which stated the two countries’ commitment to “orderly, humane and regular migration.”
During this interview, Trump also talked about how he would have never let this happen when he was president and went into explaining how after eight years of Democrat Barack Obama in the White House, many people were streaming across the border, but when he took office in January 2017, he was able to significantly cut the flow down thanks to agreements with Northern Triangle countries in Central America, and deals like Remain-in-Mexico and other, in addition to things like the implementation of Title 42 and the end of catch-and-release policies, according to a news report on Breitbart.
However, Trump said that he thinks that now Biden got rolled by Mexico and that there is an “invasion” and a “migration of civilization into the country” unlike any other in world history, as Biden ripped up Trump’s policies immediately upon taking office. Trump also believes that many of the people coming in are from mental institutions worldwide and that some are even terrorists, and he pointed this out a few times during the interview.
Trump also said that Mexico is very interesting, saying: “They came to me, we were having a lot of people come in as soon as I got there, through Obama they were coming in very substantially but nothing like today. In history, there’s been anything like this,” adding that there has never been a migration like this in any country, calling it an “invasion,” and saying that it is a migration of civilization into our country. “Take a look at the mental institutions all throughout the world. They’re empty. Some are literally empty and some are down 50, 60, 70 percent. They’re all here,” said the former president.
He also made comments on the difference between the way Mexico has behaved with Biden and how Mexico worked with him, saying that Mexico could not have been nicer to him and that they gave us 28,000 soldiers. “They gave us so much, far more than the wall,” said Trump adding that the wall was “peanuts compared to what I got from them. There’s no way to fund a wall… How can Mexico fund a wall that’s being built? But I got much more money than that.”
But as the border is becoming more of a story that cannot be hidden from the broader public, he believes the border is becoming a real problem for Democrats and Biden heading into this year, adding that the continued stream of migrant caravans grabs the nation’s attention. Trump also pointed out his concern about the numbers, as he believes by the time Biden is done as president, which he thinks will be this November as he believes that he will win the election, Biden may have imported a total of 15 million people by then. Trump’s big plans revolve around reversing Joe Biden’s failures and decimating the ‘Deep State’.
