Trump slams Biden executive action on border as “bulls—” 

Former President Trump slammed President Biden’s recent executive action on the U.S. southern border, calling it “bulls—” while speaking at a rally in Nevada on Sunday.  

While speaking to supporters in Las Vegas, Trump alleged that Biden’s executive action on the border was “pro-invasion” encouraging human trafficking and was “pro-drug dealers.” 

“It’s weak, it’s ineffective, it’s bulls— what he signed,” Trump said, as the crowd chanted “bulls—” back.  

On Tuesday, Biden announced executive action related to asylum seekers at the U.S. southern border. When the seven-day average of border crossings reaches over 2,500 among the ports of entry, the executive action allows most asylum seekers to be turned away at the border, with certain exceptions.  

The president said on Tuesday that Republicans “left me no choice” but to use executive action to address border crossings at the U.S. southern border after Republicans again opposed efforts to revive a bipartisan border bill. 

“Republicans in Congress, not all, walked away from it. Why? Because Donald Trump told them to,” Biden said. “He told the Republicans… that he didn’t want to fix the issue; he wanted to use it to attack me. That’s what he wanted to do. It was a cynical, extremely cynical political move. And a complete disservice to the American people who are looking for us, not to weaponize the border but to fix it.” 

But Trump argued that what Biden was accomplishing was “late” and “meaningless,” calling it, “a PR ploy.” 

“If Joe Biden truly wanted to sign an executive order to stop the invasion, right now all he needs to do is say, ‘I hereby immediately reinstate every single border policy of a gentleman named Donald J. Trump,’” Trump said. 

A polling average of Nevada surveys compiled by The Hill and Decision Desk HQ shows Trump leading Biden in head-to-head polls at 49 percent to Biden’s 46 percent. When longshot independent contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is included in those matchups, the average shifts to show Trump at 43 percent, Biden at 38 percent and Kennedy at 9 percent.
