Romney Blasts Biden Over Border, Says Issue Wasn’t Present With Trump

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) blasted President Joe Biden’s handling of the border this week while he praised former President Donald Trump’s immigration position and record.

During an interview with Stephanie Ruhle on MSNBC, Romney said, “People have been screaming about the border for all three and a half years Joe Biden has been president. He’s not done anything to solve the problem of the border. That’s a huge issue for President Trump, I can’t understand why President Biden didn’t tackle this from the beginning.”

Touting Trump’s handling of the border during his administration, Romney pointed out that Trump said that his position on the issue was a major propeller for the former president in the 2016 election. According to him, Trump believes his stance on the issue will help him again in the November election.

“If I were President Biden, I’d be all over that, and instead he served it to President Trump on a silver platter,” Romney stated, pointing out that illegal immigration and border security “was not a problem” under Trump.

“When he was president, he did a lot of things that sounded pretty ugly, but we didn’t have anywhere near the number of people that have come into the country illegally as we have under President Biden, and that’s something he should have done everything in his power, frankly, take some actions that maybe the courts would have stopped, then he’d have a better argument saying, ‘Hey, Congress needed to act,’ but he never did that,” he said.

He then added that the American people are seeking something different from Biden to lead the nation for another four years.
