Trump takes credit for VP Harris’ visit to the border: ‘If I weren’t going, she would have never gone’

Vice President Kamala Harris announced an upcoming visit to the Southern border after former President Donald Trump scheduled a visit with Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Harris failed to visit the border despite the growing crisis and President Biden placing her in charge of the situation over 75 days ago. In a statement on Save America, Trump wrote, “We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world. Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes. Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign.”

He continued, “If this weren’t bad enough, Biden and Harris won’t even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created, or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make their job totally impossible.”

Following mounting criticism, Vice President Harris’ spokeswoman announced, “Earlier this year, the President asked the Vice President to oversee our diplomatic efforts to address the root causes of migration from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. As a part of this ongoing work, the Vice President traveled to Guatemala and Mexico earlier this month and will travel to El Paso on Friday.” Former President Trump then released a statement, noting, “If Governor Abbott and I weren’t going there next week, she would have never gone!”
