'PROFOUNDLY HONORED': Trump Meets With Laken Riley's Family at Rally in Georgia [WATCH]

During a rally in Rome, Georgia over the weekend, former President and presumptive 2024 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump met with the family of murdered nursing student Laken Riley.

Riley was killed by an illegal immigrant from Venezuela after he slipped through the Biden border.

“I met her beautiful mother and family backstage,” Trump told the crowd in Rome. “They said she was like the best. She was always the best to us. They admit that she was the best, and she was the first in her class. She was going to be the best nurse. She was the best nursing student. She was always the best. She was the brightest light in every room, they told me.”

He added, “She was the whole world to her parents and to her sister and just to the whole family.”

Trump laid the blame for Riley’s death at the feet of President Biden and his failed border policies.

“Biden has implemented a formal policy that illegal aliens who intrude into the United States are granted immunity from deportation,” Trump said. “Thus, when this monster showed up at our border, he was set free immediately under the program. That crooked Joe created it.”

Trump said he was “profoundly honored” to have the Riley family at his even.

“They’re so incredible,” he continued. “The hearts of hundreds of thousands and indeed millions and millions of Americans and people worldwide, they’re shattered alongside of your beautiful hearts. We share your grief. We share your grief. Thank you, darling. Thank you. Thank you very much. We appreciate it.”
