President Trump says he will travel to the U.S. border with Mexico “over the next couple of weeks.” Trump made the announcement Saturday night on the Fox News Channel program Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro, saying that Border Patrol and ICE have been asking him to come to the border.
Trump: “Well, a lot of people want me to. The Border Patrols and all of the people of ICE, they want me there, they’ve asked me to go and I really sort of feel I owe it to them, they’re great people, they’re doing an incredible job…I’d love not to be involved. Somebody else is supposed to be doing it.”
Pirro asked when Trump would go and if he would beat Biden to the border.
“…Over the next couple of weeks. The Border Patrol wants me to go, uh, probably over the next couple of weeks. I don’t think there’s a rush for me to go. He’s supposed to go and make the decision…”
“…I’m not looking to have a race, I’m looking to have a problem solved.”
“…I’m not sure that I really should do it, Jeanine, other than the fact I have such respect for the Border Patrol and ICE. And these people, they’re dying for leadership. There’s nothing, there’s no leadership. You have to see the squalor. The children and, and frankly people that have come in to the country when you look at what’s happening the dirt and the filth of those places. That’s why they’re not letting the press in. And frankly, if that were me the press would be going crazy. It’s a very dangerous situation. It’s horrible for our country. They’re, they’re going to destroy our country.”
The interview covered a range of subjects covering the shortfalls of the Biden administration.
