Trump Offers GOP Advice on Border Deal

NEW YORK CITY - SEPTEMBER 28 2015: Businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump held a press conference at Trump Tower to unveil his comprehensive tax reform plan.

( – When it comes to the southern border, former President Donald Trump has had a lot to say throughout his time in office and throughout the current Biden administration. Now, he has some advice specifically for Republicans in the House of Representatives about how the situation should be handled going forward.

As is his usual modus operandi, Trump shared his opinion on his social media platform Truth Social. In the post on Wednesday, Jan. 17, the former president advised GOP House members to hold off on supporting any deal regarding the southern border that’s less than “perfect.”

Trump said he doesn’t believe there should be any “Border Deal, at all,” unless everything needed to stop the influx of immigrants gets included in the deal. Trump called the influx an “invasion” and said that “millions and millions” are still coming into the country, many from “unknown” locations. He added that he has “no doubt” that House Speaker Mike Johnson won’t make a deal on the border unless it is “perfect,” emphasizing that without a strong border and “honest elections,” Americans “don’t have a country.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has experience leading the Republican conference, made a recent appearance on WABC radio and reiterated Trump’s message. Gingrich said he hoped that House Republicans would stand firmly and tell those in the Senate that they “want a real border bill or nothing.” He also said aid for Ukraine shouldn’t be passed until the American border is taken care of first, although he doesn’t support the nation’s war effort against Russia.

Gingrich called President Joe Biden’s immigration program dishonest and said he’s “alarmed” by how many people have entered the country since Biden took office.

Trump is vowing to put a cork in the situation and stop the flow of illegal immigrants as soon as he returns to the White House. The GOP frontrunner has perhaps already established himself firmly as the party’s nominee after dominating the Iowa caucuses with 51% support.
