Joe Biden blamed his predecessor’s administration administration this week as the crisis continues to grow on the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump’s border policies were inaccurately maligned by the cognitively-challenged president as his administration struggles to maintain control of the crisis.
Biden contends his administration’s failure to prepare for the “seasonal” spike in illegal border crossing is solely to blame on he Trump administration’s refusal to cooperate during the incoming team’s post-election transition period.
“The two departments that didn’t give us access to virtually anything were the immigration and the Defense Department,”
Here Biden proves yet again his inability to be factual about the current border crisis he started. His incoming team refused to work with Trump’s border agents, as was reported at the time.
The supposed “delay” during the transition process meant, according to Biden, that his agents were unaware of just how understaffed these departments were.
“They didn’t have beds,” he said. “They didn’t plan for the overflow.”
Trump has been a vocal critic of Biden and his decision to destroy progress at the border. The Former President has released a bevy of now-famous press releases slamming Biden’s inability to manage the crisis.

For months the White House declined to call the situation at the border a “crisis,” until earlier this month Biden finally described it as just that.
