Joe Biden’s long-delayed first press conference included obsessive references to Donald Trump, at one point bizarrely exclaiming how much he missed Trump. It’s unclear what he meant by that, but it is crystal clear that our border agents miss Trump. Now that he is gone, they have been overrun by illegal aliens attracted by Biden’s invitation to unlawful immigration from Central America. Yet Biden refuses to visit our patrol agents despite the humanitarian crisis that is attracting worldwide attention. Trump did not hesitate to announce his plans to visit the border. He’s more presidential after leaving office than Joe Biden has ever been. Trump has completely exposed the lack of leadership in the White House today.
Biden announced that he had assigned his Vice President Kamala Harris to handle the border crisis. Then Harris refused to go down there, perhaps realizing what a disaster such a visit would be to her own political future. Harris’s spokeswoman Symone Sanders told reporters “The vice president is not doing the border.” This statement came from Sanders a mere two days after she took a job with the Vice President’s office. Of course, making the call to avoid the border at all cost was not a surprising course of action for Harris. Politicians often avoid photo ops with problems their own policies caused. Humanitarian crises at the border are rarely reported by the mainstream media, but some news is so tragic it cannot be censored. A nine-year-old girl was reported to have died drowning while crossing the Rio Grande, while thousands of others have been sexually abused during the 2,000-mile trip from Central America. Biden said his goal is to stop the stream of illegal migrants to the United States, but his actions spoke louder than his words. Millions more will try to cross our border, because Biden made clear that he is not going to block their entry. While he and Kamala hide to save their political reputation, more and more young children will drown in the Rio Grande on their watch. If this is leadership, America truly has become an international disgrace.
