Former President Donald Trump claimed that the U.S. is more vulnerable to terror attacks than at any time in its history.
Trump's comments come following Hamas terror attacks in Israel and threats from the group on the U.S. and others worldwide.

“With the millions of people that Crooked Joe Biden has allowed into the United States through his ridiculous Open Borders Policy, mostly young men, and large numbers of TERRORISTS, the U.S. is more vulnerable from inside terror attacks than at any time in its history, BY FAR!” Trump said on Truth Social.
The post also comes after reports of people from the terror watch list being apprehended at America's southern border.
The federal government is not going to protect Americans. We need governors to step up to the plate and protect states.

“Foreign fighters motivated by ideology or mercenary soldiers of fortune may attempt to obfuscate travel to or from the US to or from countries in the Middle East through Mexico,” a memo from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reads.
"The memo then provided patches of the three terrorist organizations — Hamas, Hezbollah, and PIJ — while listing off possible indicators," the report added.
The concerns continue to grow as record numbers of migrants cross the nation's southern border, including an unknown number of gotaways.
Trump's hardline stance continues to push for law and order at the border, including the restart of his border wall along the southern border.
The majority of Americans agree with the need to further secure the border as the issue is now about national security in addition to migration.
Trump is expected to continue speaking out on the border crisis as he sets himself up for a rematch against Biden in the 2024 presidential election.
