Donald Trump transition adviser Jason Miller said the former president could soon visit the border to see for himself what conditions are like there.
“I think there’s a very fine line between calling someone out on policies and then appearing to do something that’s showboating or give Joe Biden an opportunity to point and say, ‘See this isn’t serious, look at President Trump down at the border making a scene out of this’,” Miller said. “And so not immediately but I could see a trip at some point in the future here. But it is something that President Trump is really concerned about.”
Trump called the situation at the border “inhumane,” adding that, “These children and people are, tremendous number of children by the way, and they are living on top of each other. In squalor. It is squalor.”
He also said that the lack of COVID testing was “dangerous” for both the migrants and the surrounding communities.
More than 18,000 migrant children are now being detained by Border Patrol, which is a more than 800% increase over the number that were in custody under Trump.
