Former President Donald Trump hasn’t announced an official 2024 bid for the White House —but he’s certainly talking like someone who is ready. Trump sat down with Epoch Times’ Kash Patel to discuss Biden’s failed border policies and what he’d do, if elected again, to fix the crisis.
“It’s so easy: You close [the border] up, you got to close it up – and that would send a big signal, a really big signal,” Trump told EpochTV’s Kash’s Corner.
“The president told EpochTV’s “Kash’s Corner” on Jan. 31 that completing the wall has a significance that extends beyond domestic policy because it would project an image of strength to China’s Xi Jinping and other world leaders,” Epoch reports..
“First of all, the wall, even for him,” Trump said referring to Xi. “You know why? Because when he sees millions of people pouring into our country, he loses respect for our country.”
“When him and Putin and Kim Jong Un and Iran’s leaders, when they’re watching millions of people walk into our country … They lose respect,” Trump says.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted nearly 2 million migrants at the southern border during President Biden’s first year in office —four times as many as were apprehended under Trump during his last year in office.
