Biden Blames Trump

( – In an attempt to shift blame for his and Kamala Harris’s failure to secure the Southern Border of the United States, Joe Biden’s campaign once again pointed the finger at former President Donald Trump. The Biden team criticized Trump for blocking support to Border Patrol agents. This came after a bipartisan Senate border bill fell through.

“Donald Trump always puts himself and his dangerous pursuit of power first — even if it means defunding the Border Patrol. Donald Trump’s role is clear as day: He is personally standing in the way of giving Border Patrol the resources it needs to stop the flow of fentanyl and secure the border,” said Ammar Moussa from the Biden campaign.

Biden accused Trump of scuttling a border security bill for his own political gain and of pressuring Republican lawmakers to reject it. The proposed legislation had the endorsement of the National Border Patrol Council, which previously supported Trump.

Trump had cautioned Republicans that supporting the bill would harm the party’s prospects, especially in an election year. He also targeted Sen. James Lankford for his involvement in the bill’s creation, a bill that Speaker Mike Johnson labeled as dead on arrival in the House.

Following a failed attempt to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the Biden campaign highlighted the Trump administration’s problematic border policies, including family separations and detention practices.

“Trump caused chaos at the border as president when he separated families and put kids in cages, and now, he’s abandoning law enforcement agents instead of helping them do their job. President Biden is standing with law enforcement and working across the aisle to secure the border,” Moussa added.

The Biden team praised the border deal as significant reform, negotiated by a bipartisan group of senators. They accused Trump of undermining the deal to benefit his own political ambitions and of wanting the border crisis to persist, undermining national security and harming Americans.

“The American people deserve a president who works to deliver solutions for families instead of personal politics — thankfully, Joe Biden is on the ballot in November,” Moussa concluded.
