Trump visited the southern border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other Republicans this week.
He used the opportunity to criticize the Biden Harris administration for their handling of the border crisis.
He also suggested that Biden should have left his policies in place, an idea a majority of Americans agree with according to a recent poll.

Trump, at US-Mexican border, slams Biden for ‘open, really dangerous’ border
Former President Trump returned to the nation’s southern border Wednesday, taking direct aim at President Biden for the surge this year in migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.
“There has never been a border so secure as the southern border that we had, and now it’s opened up,” the former president emphasized as he sat down for a briefing from Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Lone Star State law enforcement and border officials.
And slamming Biden, who reversed key immigration policies implemented during the Trump administration, the former president charged that “now we have an open, really dangerous, border. More dangerous than it’s ever been in the history of our country, and we better go back fast.”…
“We had all these great polices going and they were ended. One day, they were all ended. This didn’t take place over three months or five months. This took place in the first week, they were ended. It was almost like they were ended because I did it,” Trump argued as he spoke at the briefing in Weslaco, near the southern tip of Texas.
