Former Republican President Donald Trump criticized that the current president, Democrat Joe Biden, had stopped the construction of the border wall of the United States with Mexico.
He said, in an interview with the program Meet the press of NBC, which during his government (2017-2021) They built 500 miles of massive security fence, whose lifting he authorized in 2018 to prevent migrants from continuing to arrive in the country irregularly.
“I built 500 mullas of border wall, it was great, exactly what was needed,” the Republican said with satisfaction in the conversation with journalist Kristen Welker, broadcast on Sunday.
He said that he had the Border Patrol in his office and told them that his government wanted a wall with 40 foot tall concrete panels, but the agents refused.
“They wanted to be able to see through (the wall), a combination of steel, concrete and bars. “I did all that and gave them the wall they wanted,” said the politician.
He highlighted that, with this project, his country had the lowest drug statistics in decades, as well as human trafficking and people crossing the border.
“All (Joe Biden) had to do was keep going to the beach, like he does all the time. “If he had gone to the beach and not touched anything, we would have a different situation at the border,” he stated.
In April of this year, a group of 17 Republican congressmen presented a bill to “strengthen the border” of the United States, with which they hope the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico will resume.
The erection of the extensive wall was partially suspended by the Biden Administration, which issued an executive order after reaching the Presidency to end emergency declaration that Donald Trump had issued.
