Joe Biden attempted to deflect his failings at the Southern border by blaming President Donald Trump, sparking massive backlash.
After claiming that the “border is secure” despite approximately eight million illegal crossings, Biden faces more pressure to fix the crisis.
Indeed, the southern border is now the primary issue concerning Americans today, according to recent polls.
However, Biden blamed Trump for the border crisis, saying, “Every day between now and November, the American people are gonna know that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”

Biden Claims ‘Only Reason Border Not Secure is Donald Trump’

Biden’s comments drew massive criticism across social media, mainly because the border was never more secure while Trump was in office.
Both Elon Musk and Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-MO) claimed Biden was “gaslighting” the American people.

Biden made his outlandish claims while discussing the White House-backed border security bill that was failing in the Senate.
Meanwhile, Trump praised the pushback to the bill, arguing it was wrongly paired with sending more money to Ukraine.
As we reported earlier week, Trump called the bill “one of the dumbest Bills I have ever seen.”
“This is a Democrat trap. It’s a trap for Republicans that would be so stupid, so foolish to sign a bill like this. This bill can’t be signed.”

Jay Weber, a Milwaukee radio talk show host also took aim at Biden for blaming Trump for the spike in illegal crossings.
“Every part of Biden’s n/c [news conference] today was dishonest. Every line. The Democrat party is simply all about gaslighting and lying to the American people now,” Weber wrote on X.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attempted to defend Biden, also claiming that Trump was responsible for the bill’s failure.

Meanwhile, Sen. Eric Schmitt slammed Schumer for his remarks, writing on X:
“Give me a break. There is a reason it has been called the #BidenBorderCrisis!”
The only reason the border isn’t secure is because the first day you were in office you reversed every Trump policy that was working.— Eric Schmitt (@Eric_Schmitt) February 6, 2024
Give me a break.
