In a video released last Thursday, former President Trump says he will “wage war” on the drug cartels if he was re-elected for office.
Trump warned the drug cartels that he will treat them like Isis, an organization he battled tenaciously against while in office since, in his opinion, President Joe Biden is friendly to the cartels.
The former president accused Biden of indulging the Mexican cartels, adding that “Biden’s open border policies are a deadly betrayal of our nation.”
“Joe Biden has sided against the United States and with the cartels,” … “When I am president, it will be the policy of the United States to take down the cartels, just as we took down ISIS and the ISIS caliphate-and just as, unlike the situation we are in today, we had a very, very strong border,”
The former president expressed his dissatisfaction over the fact that although border security used to be respected internationally, it is now “laughed” at.
Trump warned nations who do not cooperate fully with the U.S., claiming he would reveal “every bribe” and corrupt practice that foreign leaders have engaged in.
This occurs as calls on Biden to do something about illegal immigration grow louder and louder. Biden made a quick trip to the southern border on Sunday, January 8th.
Additionally, President Biden announced increased border security measures. They include an expansion of a humanitarian parole program originally created for Venezuelan nationals to include Haitians, Cubans, and Nicaraguans.
This will allow 30,000 people per month from the four countries to enter the United States on parole for two years, but only if they have a financial sponsor and meet other requirements. The program will be combined with the recently reinstated Title-42.
