Utah’s incoming senator Mitt Romney came out in favor of President Donald Trump’s border wall after the president and the president’s supporters expressed their extreme displeasure with Romney’s criticism of Trump.
“I would vote for the border wall. That’s been part of my platform for many, many years. I think we should have a border wall on our southern border…That’s necessary but insufficient,” Romney said in his interview Thursday with CNN’s Jake Tapper. (15:55 Mark In Video Below)
President Trump pressured Romney to support border security on Twitter.
Romney declined to endorse Trump for president in 2020 and said that he is waiting to see what the “alternatives” are to Trump, but said that “I am not running again.” He made reference to a potential Republican primary.
Utah’s incoming senator Mitt Romney fills the position that everyone knew he was going to fill: NeverTrump “Republican” that the mainstream media can point to in their attacks on President Donald Trump.
“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December” said Mitt in a Washington Post op-ed, referring to the fact that President Trump is actually winning on his America First priorities like ending the Never Ending Wars. Romney also said that Trump has not risen to the “mantle” of the presidency.
It’s all annoying nonsense, but it will get the chattering classes excited and the press talking for probably a few straight days.
With Jeff Flake making an unceremonious exit, Romney is now going to be even more insufferable, because the political class wants him to run in 2020, either as a GOP primary challenger to Trump or — get this — as Joe Biden’s running mate on the Democrat side on a Swamp Unity ticket.
I reported on former Jeb! Bush adviser and current Biden Institute adviser Juleanna Glover’s op-ed for Politico in which she argues for a Biden-Romney unity ticket.
The whole thing seems confusing to the American people, because the media hated Mitt Romney in 2012 because they wanted Barack Obama to win. Now, get ready for two years of the media loving Mitt Romney and thinking he’s awesome.
It’s irritating, but this is what the Washington political class does. It is still unclear how much the American people will be forced to actually pay attention to the mainstream media and their celebrated Swamp figures during the 2020 campaign, but we will find out as we go along just how much Trump has weakened this sinister, corrupt infrastructure.
Biden DHS Secretary to Illegal Immigrants: “We’re Not Saying ‘Don’t Come,’ We’re Saying ‘Don’t Come Now'”
Did he just endorse illegal immigration?
Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, appeared at Monday’s White House press briefing to give an overview of what he and the DHS are doing to “replace the cruelty” of the Trump administration’s immigration processes and to take questions from reporters.
In response to a reporter’s question about how he was going to rebuild the DHS and reunite families, Mayorkas began by saying that they are “progressing every single day” on building a system to accept “asylum seekers”—read: illegal immigrants—through ports of entry.
“We are progressing every single day. I don’t have a particular timeline, but all I can do is communicate, both to the American public and to the individuals seeking protection, that we are working around the clock seven days a week to make that timeframe as short as possible, but they need to wait. But they need to wait with a particular goal in mind. We are not saying ‘don’t come,’ we are saying ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible. There have been, I understand, approximately 105 families reunited in the recent past. That is through the extraordinary efforts of counsel and others in the community. We are joining with counsel, with members of the community to work on this.”
Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
Big League Politics has covered Mayorkas closely since his nomination to DHS secretary by Joe Biden. He previously said he would stop construction of the border wall and that he was unsure what he’d do with the amount of wall already built.
