Texas Republican Snubbed by Biden During Visit

All about bipartisanship, right? Isn’t that what Joe Biden always pretends he is for?

Yet, when Joe Biden went to Texas to see the border, guess who was not invited to speak or meet with him?

That would be Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-TX), whose district just happens to be El Paso, TX.

Not Him

One would think that this would have been a great chance for Joe Biden to extend an olive branch across the aisle and deliver on his Christmas message.

That, however, was not the case.

The White House claims time restraints prevented Biden from being able to meet with Gonzalez.

It stated, "As is often the case with presidential trips, we received multiple requests from lawmakers to join the President on this trip and were not able to accommodate all requests, from Republicans and Democrats alike, due to space constraints.

"Our legislative affairs team has been and will continue to remain in close touch with these lawmakers.”

Gonzales was not happy, responding, "I find it insulting that President Biden blames space constraints for ignoring my request to accompany him on a visit to El Paso County, which I represent in Congress.

"For two years, this administration has pointed fingers at Republicans for not wanting to act in a bipartisan manner on border policy.

"In contrast, by not inviting Republicans on this trip, specifically the Republican member who represents El Paso, it shows they are not willing to work across the aisle to fix the crisis at our southern border.”

When Fox News asked Gonzalez what he was told regarding the visit, he stated, "They told me that I couldn’t attend. The president essentially lied to my face, and this shouldn’t surprise anyone."

"And I think it’s important that we have Republicans that are constantly pushing the administration to go, ‘no, no, no, I want to work with you. I want to find solutions.’ They want all Republicans to just give up."

He continued, "It took the president 80 years to get to the border. You suspect it’s going to take another 80 years before he comes back."

"Clearly this shows the administration has zero interest in solving this. They think it’s a political problem, they don’t think it’s a policy problem."

So, once again, Joe Biden is talking out of both sides of his mouth.
