Today, former President Donald Trump said that he has accepted an invitation from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) to join him at the country’s southern border on Wednesday, June 30 after Abbott announced Texas would build its own border wall last Thursday.
Trump said in a press release that President Joe Biden’s administration has created the “single worst border crisis in U.S. history” and pointed out that when his administration left office, the border was strong, safe and secure.
In the statement, Trump slammed Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for not visiting the border or visiting with Border Patrol or Immigration and Customs Enforcement and that their lack of response doesn’t help the “unmitigated disaster zone.”
“Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs. Our nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the U.S interior on a daily basis,” Trump added, with hopes that his visit will show them that they are supported.
In a tweet where he shared a clip of the interview and explained, “Texas will finish what President Trump started. Later this week, I will unveil our plans to build a border wall. The Lone Star State will do what Biden REFUSES to do — protect our citizens along the southern border.”
Later this week, I will unveil our plans to build a border wall.

Conservatives cheered the news on Twitter. Newsmax’s Jenn Pellegrino tweeted the statement and exclaimed, “While Kamala dodges questions & travels everywhere but the border, President Trump has announced he will visit our “decimated southern border” on June 30 with @GovAbbott And unlike the current admin, the media will have ACCESS to this visit!”
