Trump said that he would ‘love not to be involved’ while taking adding doesn’t think ‘there’s a rush’ for him to go.

‘You’re going to have millions of people pouring into our country. It’s a very dangerous situation. I would love not to be involved. Someone else is supposed to be doing it.’

Trump also touted his relationship with the Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and blasted Biden for ending that.

‘He’s supposed to go and make the decision to stay in Mexico. He ended that,’ Trump said.

‘It’s incredible. We are not getting along with Mexico any longer. We have a great president of Mexico who was great to me.’

When Pirro mentioned that President Obrador had criticized Biden, Trump said: ‘Good.’

‘We had a great process with the President of Mexico, who is a terrific guy and a friend of mine. It was a strong process. Frankly they weren’t coming into Mexico,’ Trump said.

‘By the time we got it going, they weren’t coming in at Mexico’s southern border because they knew they couldn’t come into the United States.’ 

Trump also said that Mexico had 28,000 soldiers who stopped people from coming in to the United States, before then touting his signature border wall.

‘The wall is just a few of weeks away from being completed. It took 2 1/2 years to start the because the Democrats in congress sued us 11 different times.’

Trump last visited the border during his final weeks in office when he traveled to Alamo, Texas, to celebrate the completion of more than 450 miles of his border wall. 

‘We paid for it already. The contracts are completed. The wall should be completed by now. He stopped it almost on his first day,’ Trump said when asked by Pirro the United States would still need to pay for the wall after Biden stopped construction. 

Trump said the wall is ‘new’ and ‘top of the line’ addressing criticism from Democrats that fencing already existed at the southern border. 

‘They like to say it’s renovated wall. We track wall down and built new wall. They like to say it’s a renovation,’ Trump said. 

‘It’s technologically advanced with the wires and we are hook up for drones. We are hooked up for everything. This is great stuff. And they topped construction. So we have some open areas.’

Trump said that the Biden administration is filling those gaps with Border Patrol agents but claimed that would not be necessary with the completed wall.

‘You don’t even have to do that. They should finish the wall immediately. Stay in Mexico policy has to get reenacted. Which isn’t that easy anymore. Now Mexico is angry at us. The other countries are not respecting us,’ Trump said.

When asked by Pirro if Trump expects he will beat top Democrats to the border like Vice President Kamala Harris, he said: ‘I’m not looking to have a race. I’m looking to get a problem solved.’

‘This is going to destroy our country. These are people in a large way are not people we want in our country. You have criminals, murderers, rapists, drug dealers coming up,’ he said.

‘I got along well with the heads of every one of the countries, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico. But they are not looking to have their finest people leave their country. But they don’t mind if MS-13 leaves their country.’

Trump blasted the Biden administration for letting the unaccompanied children who have migrated live in squalor and not letting press in to document the situation.

‘You have to see that squalor children and frankly people that have come into the country when you look at what’s happening. The dirt and the filth of those places. That’s why they are not letting the press in,’ Trump said.

‘If that were me the press would be going crazy. It’s a very dangerous situation. It’s horrible for our country.’

Since Biden was inaugurated, the United States has seen an unprecedented surge of migrants at the border as the number of unaccompanied children are on track to surpass numbers from May 2019. 

U.S. border agents conducted 100,441 apprehensions or expulsions of migrants at the border with Mexico in February – the highest monthly total since a border crisis of 2019, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said recently. 

President Joe Biden claimed on Wednesday that a ‘surge’ of migrants at the southern border started during the Trump administration.

Biden also blamed Trump for getting rid of a $700 million foreign aid program that would have prevented the migration surge by strengthening the economies of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
