Donald Trump spoke to Maria Bartiromo last night in an interview where he slammed Biden over his border crisis, among many other issues.
“[Mexican President 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 said. “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,” he said. “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.”
Trump made it clear that with him in office, this would’ve never happened – and with Biden in charge, things are going to get “much, much” worse, he warned.
He also tore into Mitch McConnell, who he blamed for the GOP losing the Georgia runoffs. “You look at those Senate elections… it’s such a shame that happened. Everything you’re talking about on your show today was affected by those two seats. It’s devastating that we lost” he said.
“Republicans quite frankly were fighting for $600 vs. $2,000… Mitch McConnell made a tremendous mistake. He lost those two seats.”
As for teasing a 2024 presidential run as he’s done in the past, Trump used the opportunity to poke fun at the recent reports that Meghan Markle is meeting with Democrat political consultants to plan a potential presidential run. “If that happened, I think I’d have an even stronger feel toward running” he said.
Trump also drew attention to Biden and Democrats seeking massive tax hikes and spending hikes, and rising gas prices. “They 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.”
Speaking on the coronavirus, Trump encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated, but made it clear that they only should if they want to. “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. 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.”
