Biden said, “When an unaccompanied child ends up at the border, we are going to let them starve to death and stay on the other side — No previous administration did that either, except Trump. I’m not going to do it.”
In response to this, Trump slammed Biden saying, “First of all, it’s just the opposite. By the time we finished what we were doing [on the border], very few people were coming up because they knew they weren’t going to get through. We stopped ‘catch and release’ — which was a disaster.”
The former president added, “The very biggest thing was we had the Remain In Mexico policy, and that means that we wouldn’t allow people to wait in our country until they were totally checked out, which most of them didn’t get checked out, and they would go back to their own country.”
He continued and said, “If young kids were with parents, but a lot of times, they weren’t, and we would take care of them, but … what they are doing now is outrageous. And they should finish the wall.”

The former president also accused the Democratic majority in Washington of “destroying” our country, saying that they cannot be allowed to do so. Trump also said that at the southern border, they are destroying the country, and the prices of gasoline are going up.
“We are energy-independent. I created that,” Trump claimed.
He continued, “But in another couple of months, we won’t be, and take a look at what is happening to the price of gasoline. It’s [increased] over a dollar, that is like a big tax increase to people. That is the same thing, equivalent, and even greater than a big tax increase. It’s terrible.”
Later in the interview, Trump also criticized Biden and the White House for what he calls an “absolute embarrassment last week in Anchorage, Alaska.
The current Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jacob Sullivan previously held a diplomatic meeting with top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi. Accordingly, Ingraham told Trump that the Chinese Diplomat lectured Blinken on perceived American shortcomings, such as the unrest that is seen across the United States and the prevalence of Black Lives Matter.

Ingraham asked Trump, “Did the Chinese ever lecture you or your people about America’s racism problem?”
Trump fumed, “We never had anything like that happen… That was an absolute embarrassment to our country. I could not believe it.” He added, “We should have walked out. Nobody ever talked to my group that way, have nobody ever talked to me that way, I can tell you that.”
The former president also noted, “If they did, I would have doubled up the tariffs — which, frankly, were something we probably should have done, anyway. I took in billions and billions of dollars from China. We were bringing businesses back. It was really going well. And China respected us. They never spoke to us the way they spoke [to Biden’s team].”
In the interview, Ingraham also asked Trump about the rising minority voters’ support for the Republican ticket in 2020. The host also noted that a friend of hers made a remark saying that he would “never seen a Republican work harder for minority votes — yet they trash him as a racist.”

Trump responded to this saying, “I did criminal justice reform, which Obama and Biden could not get done. They failed miserably. I did Opportunity Zones, and I created the best unemployment numbers in the history.”
The former president also argued that when the current president or a Democrat is faced with an issue that they cannot respond to proficiently, they will throw out the “race card.”
“When they can’t get you on something, they throw out the race card. It’s a different world right now.” Trump said. He added, “We did thing that nobody thought could be done: Criminal justice reform was a very, very big thing, and I guess Biden tried. I know Obama tried. They couldn’t get anywhere. I got it done.”
