Vice President Kamala Harris will visit the U.S.-Mexico Border on Friday. She has been scrutinized by Republicans for not making the trip after President Joe Biden tapped her to handle the border crisis.
Harris’ visit will come just days before former President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive on a visit with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
After the White House confirmed the Vice President’s travel plans, Trump issued this statement:
“After months of ignoring the crisis at the Southern Border, it is great that we got Kamala Harris to finally go and see the tremendous destruction and death that they’ve created – a direct result of Biden ending my very tough but fair Border policies.”
“Harris and Biden were given the strongest Border in American history. And now, it is by far the worst in American history. If Governor Abbott and I weren’t going there next week, she would have never gone!”
Harris will visit El Paso on June 25 with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
