Psaki Attacks Trump, Claims ‘Influx Of Migrants’ Began Under Trump, ‘Exacerbated’ By ‘Destructive And Chaotic Policies’


On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki opened her press briefing with a vitriolic attack on the Trump administration, blaming them for the crisis at the Southern border of the United States. She claimed the Trump administration’s “destructive and chaotic policies” were responsible for the “influx of migrants at the border” and that the influx began under the Trump administration and was “exacerbated” by them. Psaki began by stating, “I wanted to provide a brief update on the situation on our Southern border; after four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head-on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system. That’s our objective.” She immediately shifted blame for the crisis on to the Trump administration, snapping, “After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border, something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration. And we wanted to provide a couple of pieces of data you may have seen, but they’ve come out since the last time we had a briefing in here.”
