Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley went on Fox News on Tuesday to give her thoughts on Vice President Kamala Harris laughing off not visiting the U.S. border despite the crisis that is happening there.
Haley said that Harris has done an “embarrassing” job handling the border crisis since she was put in charge of it, adding that she “doesn’t know what is happening” down there.
“This is embarrassing,” Haley lamented. “I don’t know what the problem is. Clearly, she is fearful, but Kamala Harris was given one job — one job — and that was to deal with the border, and any leader knows you can’t fix what you can’t see.”
“She hasn’t been on the ground,” she continued. “She hasn’t talked to Border Patrol. She doesn’t know what is happening there. So, she says she wants to go to the root cause, and then she brings up Europe. No one has given her the job of Europe. She’s got the job of the border. And I appreciate that she’s going to Guatemala; I appreciate she’s going to Mexico. You know why? Because both of those leaders say that the Biden administration is the reason they are having all these problems at the border.”
“This is the same woman that literally tweeted out, ‘Come one come all, we are open for everyone,'” Haley concluded. “I mean, all you have to do is look at that. And so now she’s going to say do not come. You know it says do not come? When you show up at the border, and you really have actions speak louder than words. I don’t know what her fear is at the border, but clearly, she has one. And I don’t know what Biden’s fear of the border is, but he has one. What I will call it is flat-out denial. They think that if they don’t go, it won’t be real. It’s very real.”
This came hours after Harris snapped when confronted by NBC’s Lester Holt about not visiting the border, responding by saying that she also hasn’t “been to Europe.”
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn't get it.
Holt: "Do you have any plans to visit the border?"
Harris: "We've been to the border. We've been the border."
Holt: "YOU haven't been to the border."
Harris: "…..and I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point you're making." pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6
