(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump said Monday he is being asked to make a visit to a U.S.-Mexico border he helped secure during his term in office and added that he’s seriously considering it.
“Well, I’ve been asked to go by a lot of different people, including Border Patrol,” the former president told Fox News’s Stuart Varney. “These are great people that — working so hard for our country, and I’ve been asked to go, so I’m seriously considering it.

“It could happen relatively soon, just to support these incredible men and women who have done such a good job and, you know, they’re just left out to dry. It’s disgraceful that nobody’s been there from the administration,” added Trump.
The 45th president also lashed out at President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for “incompetence” in securing the border or even visiting.
“So it’s totally open. I personally think it’s incompetence,” Trump said. “I don’t think it’s to let people in, you know, because so many of the people are criminals coming in.
“I don’t know if you know, but they’ve opened their prisons. They’re sending people in that you don’t want in this country, rapists and murderers and drug dealers, and many, many of those people are entering the country,” he added.
He went on to reference what then-Cuban leader Fidel Castro did in 1980, when he allowed a mass exodus out of his country to the U.S., which included mental patients and prisoners.
“If you remember with Cuba, you remember what happened there. Well, this is the same thing but this is on a much bigger scale, and what’s happening to our country, they’re destroying our country,” Trump said.
Varney said Trump would “shake things up” if he made a trip to the border.
“Well, there’s a good chance I will, but I actually think it’s incompetence,” Trump responded.
“I don’t think it’s anything else. I really don’t. They don’t need the votes because they cheated in the election. So, they don’t really need the votes,” he added.
“You know, everyone says they’re doing it because they need the votes. They don’t need the votes. They cheat like hell. So, I just think it’s gross incompetence.”
