Trump sat for an interview with Sean Hannity on Monday night and discussed a number of topics.
One thing that came up early was the border crisis that has exploded under Biden.
Trump did not hold back at all.
Here’s a partial transcript, via the Daily Wire:
SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: Let me go to one of your signature issues, from the first day, the day you came down the escalator. And that had to do with immigration. You instituted policies, stay in Mexico policy. It worked. You built I think by the end over 450 miles of new border wall.
DONALD TRUMP, 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Yeah.
HANNITY: Obviously walls work.
HANNITY: Then of course, you ended the practice with catch and release. Now we see the exact opposite. You’ve seen these images on TV. I say they’re Biden’s cages. I mean, the media went nuts about all Trump is putting children in cages. It turned out Joe Biden and Barack Obama built those cages. And the images were from 2014, not 2018.
My question is this, imagine — well, first of all, the — your overall take on how dangerous this is. And number two, imagine if you’re president and you have these are trump’s cages overflowing with kids in the middle of a pandemic that with a high positivity of COVID, what do you think the media — because there’s been virtual silence on a lot of the aspects. I would — I would argue if it was a daycare center, you’d be shut down and charged with child abuse.
TRUMP: They would not stand for it. And they’re playing it down as much as they can play it down. It’s a horrible situation, could destroy our country.

Trump is right.
The situation at the border is completely out of control.
