Former President Donald Trump recently tore into President Joe Biden over a number of issues in a speech at a wedding held at Mar-a-Lago.

The speech was reportedly delivered Saturday evening at a wedding for John and Megan Arrigo. TMZ obtained the video over the weekend, The Hill reported.

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.

With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.
