Former US president urged Biden to secure US border first before “talking about invasions of other countries”
Former US President Donald Trump has blasted his successor Joe Biden for “obsessing over how to protect Ukraine’s border,” while accusing his government of turning a blind eye to the crisis at the America’s own frontier with Mexico.
“Everyone in Washington is obsessing over how to protect Ukraine’s border, but the most important border in the world right now for us is not Ukraine’s border, it’s America’s border,” Trump told his supporters at a “Save America” rally in Conroe, Texas on Saturday.
Citing record-high numbers of illegal migrants reaching the US-Mexico border, the ex-president likened the influx of people to an “invasion” threatening US security. He went on to argue that Biden had already “surrendered” the US border, and “now the entire planet is intruding across it as though America has been defeated on the field of battle.”
“Before our leaders talk about invasions of other countries they need to stop the invasion of this country,” Trump added, suggesting that the US should ramp up troops at its southern border instead of deploying American soldiers closer to Russia’s doorstep.
