Former President Donald Trump offered a firm recommendation to House Republicans regarding the optimal approach for the U.S. border, which he conveyed through social media this week.
In a recent message on Trust Social, Trump urged his fellow party members in Congress to refrain from endorsing any agreement that falls short of being “flawless.”
“I do not think we should do a Border Deal, at all, unless we get EVERYTHING needed to shut down the INVASION of Millions & Millions of people, many from parts unknown, into our once great, but soon to be great again, Country!” he wrote in the post.
“Also, I have no doubt that our wonderful Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, will only make a deal that is PERFECT ON THE BORDER,” he added.
“Remember, without Strong Borders and Honest Elections, we don’t have a Country!!!” Trump concluded in the post.
During a radio interview on Wednesday, another individual with considerable experience in leading House Republicans expressed comparable sentiments.
“I hope the House Republicans stand firm and tell the Senate Republicans, ‘We want a real border bill or nothing,’” former House Speak Newt Gingrich said on the “Cats & Cosby” radio show on WABC.
“‘And we’re not going to pass the aid to Ukraine without taking care of the American border,’” he suggested they add.
Gingrich expressed his support for the notion of maintaining American assistance to Ukraine, emphasizing his strong desire to counter Putin’s actions. However, he emphasized the importance of safeguarding the border.
“The American border is at least as important to Americans as the Ukrainian border,” Gingrich explained. “I’m also really, really alarmed at the sheer numbers that Biden has brought into this country and the total dishonesty of their program.”

Subsequently, during the interview, Gingrich expressed his view that certain Senate Republicans, whom he referred to as the “soft wing,” were inclined to strike a deal merely for the sake of having an accomplishment to showcase.
“That’s stupid,” Gingrich said. “The Senate Republicans ought to side with the House Republicans, hang very tough. The country is totally fed up with the border.”
“Our goal should be: Not a single person crosses the border without being inspected,” he said.
