Sarah Sanders doubtful Biden loves US: ‘If he did, he certainly wouldn’t be trying to destroy it’
On Thursday evening, Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders of Arkansas was asked whether she believes Vice President Joe Biden loves the United States of America.
Her response seemed to be that he does not, as was reflected in a report by The Washington Times.
During a recent interview on Fox News Channel, when the governor was discussing the problem at the southern border, host Jesse Watters posed the following question to Sanders: "Do you think Joe Biden loves this country?"
Following a considerable pause, she expressed nothing but doubt in her response.
“If he did, he certainly wouldn’t be trying to destroy it second by second, minute by minute. hour by hour. But that’s exactly what he’s doing,” she said.
A list of Biden's failings, as viewed by Sanders, regarding the economy, border security, and the maintenance of the United States' reputation in the international community was presented.
“Literally every single thing he does is [aimed] at the destruction and demise of the people of this country,” she said.
Having formerly served as the press secretary for former President Donald Trump during his time in the White House, Sanders said of Mr. Biden that it was “disgraceful and disqualifying for him to be president of the United States if he cannot do the simple job of protecting our border.”
Sander's Stand With Texas
Fourteen Republican governors, including Sanders, will convene in Texas on Sunday for a border security news conference. Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas will preside over the occasion at Shelby Park in Eagle Pass.
Abbott's order for the Texas National Guard to secure the site, preventing Homeland Security from accessing the area and removing razor-wire in response to a Supreme Court ruling, has made headlines in recent weeks.
Sanders stated support for Abbott’s effort at the southern border of his state in a social post last month, writing that “Arkansas stands with Texas” and supports its “constitutional right to self-defense.”
In the aftermath, Sanders once more offered her opinion on the border dispute, proposing that the incumbent president adopt the policies that were advocated by his predecessor.
“We don’t need a ‘deal.’ We need a wall,” Sanders said. “Biden already has the power to secure the border and refuses to use it. Reinstate the Remain in Mexico policy, build the wall, and enforce immigration laws already on the books.”
