(Republicaninformer.com)- Former President Donald Trump’s campaign released a video promoting the 2024 candidate’s campaign policy proposal to deal with the drug cartels, with Trump vowing to “wage war” on cartels and deal with them the same way he dealt with Islamic State.
In the video, Trump calls Joe Biden’s open border policies a “deadly betrayal” of the country. The former president said if he is elected in 2024, it will the policy of his administration “to take down the cartels, just as we took down ISIS.”
Trump says in the video that during his previous administration, border security was stronger than it had been in history, and “drugs were at a low of 45 years.”
As part of his proposed policy to combat drug cartels, Trump said he would order the Navy to blockade the cartels, use Special Forces to inflict “maximum damage” on them, and designate the cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.
Trump also promised to get other regional governments to join his war against drug cartels. And if the governments refuse to give the United States their “full cooperation,” Trump said his administration would expose “every bribe” and corruption involving the leaders of those governments.
This week, President Joe Biden visited the US/Mexico border for the first time in his entire 50-year political career when he made a brief stop in El Paso Texas on Sunday before traveling to Mexico City.
Critics blasted the truncated visit, describing it as a “sanitized” photo-op, with El Paso clearing away migrant encampments in the city and Border Patrol and local police ramping up detentions ahead of the president’s visit.
At the 10th North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico City this week, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador didn’t do Joe Biden any favors in 2024.
During a joint press conference with Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Obrador thanked President Biden for being the first president “in a very long time” to not build “even one meter” of a wall along the border.
