Trump Tells Fox That ICE and Border Patrol Are Pleading With Him to Visit Border and Provide “Leadership”
Donald Trump was kicked off of Twitter for good after his insurrection. The former president, though, still has plenty of thoughts that he’d like to get out to his supporters. Lucky for him, Fox News lets him call into their shows whenever he feels like it.
And Trump wants to do anything he can to distract from Biden’s successes so far. The GOP, ignoring the stimulus package and mass shootings, have zeroed in on the US/Mexico border. And on Saturday night, Trump claimed that Border Patrol and ICE are pleading with him to visit the border.
The former president made the comments while speaking to Jeanine Pirro last night. Pirro asked, “The rumor is you are going to go to the border yourself. When do you plan to do that?”
Trump responded, “Well, a lot of people want me to. The Border Patrol and all of the people of ICE. They want me there, they asked me to go. And I sort of feel I owe it to them. They are great people doing an incredible job.”
Pirro continued, “Mr. President, when do you think you would go?” The former President responded, “I would say over the next couple of weeks. The Border Patrol wants me to go. Probably over the next couple of weeks. I don’t think there is a rush for me to go.”
