The news is “telling me about the border, they’re telling me about China, they’re telling me about Iran,” Trump said at the start of the video, deriding the current situation between the United States and both countries.
The former president’s attention then turned to the border.
“The border is not good,” Trump told the crowd at his Palm Beach, Florida club and residence. “And what you see now, multiply it times 10.”
He went on to talk about the massive wave of unaccompanied migrant children making their way to the U.S.-Mexico border. There have been a variety of reports illustrating overcrowded conditions at detention facilities and poor accommodations for the migrants being held in them.
“What’s happening to the kids […] they’re living in squalor. They’re living like nobody has ever seen,” said Trump, in a tuxedo. “Look, it’s a disaster. It’s a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint and it’s going to destroy the country and, frankly, the country can’t afford it.”

Trump on Saturday told Fox News that he will “probably” venture to the southern border “over the next couple of weeks.” Biden, on the other hand, said at his Thursday press conference that he has yet to visit the border or the facilities because he doesn’t “want to become the issue” due to his large Secret Service team following him.
After touching on the pressure that the border crisis puts on education and healthcare systems, he asked the crowd, “Do you miss me yet?” And, in response, the crowd let out an uproar of cheers and applause.
Following that, Trump also touted the number of votes he received in the 2020 presidential election.
Trump has left the door open to a reelection bid in 2024. On Thursday, Biden said he intends to run again, however, he did not make a commitment.
Toward the speech’s conclusion, Trump wished the newlyweds well and calls them a “great and beautiful couple.”

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel
Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.
“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.
House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.
“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.
“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
