Former President Trump slammed President Biden as the crisis at the border further unravel.
On Fox News, Primetime with Maria Bartiromo, former President Trump stated that he and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador built a “great relationship” with a joint interest in controlling illegal immigration and constructing an efficient border wall.
The former President said, “[Lopez Obrador] is a great gentleman. We had a very good relationship. They had 28,000 soldiers on our border while we were building the wall … and they were also stopping them at their northern border by Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.”

Trump added, “Today, they are coming in. You take a look. They are coming in from foreign countries. I see they are coming in from Yemen. They are coming in from the Middle East. They are coming in from everywhere. They are dropping them off, and they are pouring into our country. It is a disgrace.”
“They are going to destroy our country if we don’t do something about it, He continued.”
Trump also slammed Biden as he alleged that Biden “eroded” the progress that his administration made on the border regarding national security and vetting asylum seekers.
The former president also added, “Frankly, our country can’t handle [the increase in migrants]. It is a crisis like we have rarely had, and certainly, we have never had on the border. But it is going to get much worse.”

During the interview, Trump was also asked if he would recommend his supporters voluntarily receive the COVID-19 vaccine, stating that there is a large number of Republicans that remain opposed or uneasy to get the vaccine at this point.
Trump responded, “I would. I would recommend it, and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it, and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.”
However, he added, “But again, we have our freedoms, and we have to live by them, and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine, and it is something that works.”
The former president also added that pharmaceutical companies and the FDA have been working around the clock to develop the vaccine.
Biden is now planning a tax hike as if the prices of gas soaring and the food prices going up weren’t enough.

During the said interview, the former president also slammed Biden and the Democratic party over the near $1 or more price hike in gas. Stating that this is due to Biden’s executive orders reducing American energy production and transport.
Trump said, “When I look at what is happening, we were energy independent. Gas prices are going up at a far more rapid rate than anyone has seen in a long time. We had gas prices very low, and yet we had more energy jobs than we have ever had.”
The former president added that while Biden and the Democratic party seek massive tax hikes, the rise in gas prices amounts to even more onerous “tax” in his mind.
Trump contended, “[T]hey will be going up by $1, $2, $3, when you look at that, and it’s bigger than a tax increase to the consumer, [If] you get a dollar increase in gasoline, that is bigger than a big tax hike. So, it’s a terrible thing that is happening.”
The former President also predicted that the Democratic party will inflate the taxes to the highest number that we have ever seen and that it will be devastating for the country’s economy.

Before the Fox News interview with former president Trump, he made comments against the growing crisis at the U.S. Mexico border where illegal immigrants and asylum seekers have overwhelmed federal authorities. At the same time, the current administration stopped the construction of Trump’s wall.
In a statement earlier this month, Trump said, “Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden. Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration.”
He added, “A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute. Many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading covid.”

The former president also claimed that interior enforcement had been shut down. Criminals who were once immediately removed by the Trump administration are not being released back into the street to commit violent and heinous crimes.
“ICE officers are desperate to remove these convicted criminals, but Biden won’t let them,” Trump continued.
Trump also labeled the crisis as a Biden-caused “spiraling tsunami,” referring to border towns being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants that didn’t get tested for COVID-19 despite strict federal constraints on American citizens engaging in travel and commerce.
Trump fumed, “The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our Nation. Keep illegal immigration, crime, and the China Virus out of our country!”
