‘It has been two weeks’: Lara Trump slams Harris over absence from border amid crisis

It’s been nearly two weeks since President Joe Biden first announced that Kamala Harris would be playing a leading role in his administration’s efforts to resolve the ongoing immigration crisis at the U.S.–Mexico border, and still, the vice president has not made a trip to the border to see the problem for herself. Now, critics are calling her out on it.

In an appearance Saturday on Fox News’ Watters’ World, Lara Trump blasted Harris for being missing-in-action at the border despite an ongoing surge in migration there.

“Where is Vice President Kamala Harris? She needs to get down to the southern border,” Trump said Saturday, according to Fox. “It has been two weeks…since she was tapped for this role.”

“An absolute crisis”

Speaking with guest host Dan Bongino, Trump said that the situation at the border is nothing short of a “crisis,” regardless of how the White House “want[s] to spin it.”

“What we see happening down there is so egregious, so outrageous, it is bad for America, it is bad for the people that are trying to come over our southern border,” she said, according to Fox. “I don’t care how they want to spin it, there is no doubt [what is] happening on our southern border right now…is an absolute crisis.”

The daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump went on to contrast her father-in-law’s handling of the early days of the coronavirus pandemic with his successor’s handling of the border crisis, which has been less than effective, to say the least.

“You saw President Donald Trump task Vice President Mike Pence with heading up Operation Warp Speed, and he jumped in with both feet,” she said, according to Fox. “You heard from him constantly. You heard from the White House constantly. They were holding press conferences as often as possible to keep the American people informed.”

By contrast, Lara Trump said President Biden’s administration has been “the least transparent we have ever seen in the White House.”

According to her, part of the blame for the lack of transparency lies with the mainstream media, which she said “coddled Joe Biden the entire campaign, and allowed him to get to this spot, and now they don’t want to mess anything up.”

“No laughing matter”

As for whether — and when — Harris is planning a trip to the border, the answer remains unclear — and she hasn’t exactly been forthcoming in her responses to reporters who are asking the question.

In an incident that has since gone viral, Harris broke out laughing after being pressed by a journalist on if she plans to make the trip. “Not today,” the vice president declared before launching into what some commenters described as a cackle. “But I have before and I’m sure I will again.”

The moment drew criticism from Republicans like Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who told Fox News that the situation is “no laughing matter.”

  1. It is sadly apparent that Both Biden and Harris are incompetent and don’t know how to act responsibly to a crisis and how lax they are in their thinking. I don’t think either of them are unfortunately able and prepared and comptent enough to take responsibility and the consequences for what they are and aren’t doing
    !! All I can say is lead or get the hell out of the way!! We need leaders and you are NOT!

  2. What can I say. This is going to cost us taxpayers billions of dollars. And should have been addressed byBiden 6 weeks ago. Harris over 2 weeks ago. There is not one thing more important at this moment where are these two idiots. Harris thinks it’s funny. Guess what it’s not. Do your job

  4. Harris took on more than she can chew. She, beside Biden, are poor excuses for human beings. It’s sad that this country is going down the drain because of the pair of them, and the rest of the government. I just shake my head and worry. We NEED President Trump back. Too bad we can’t turn back time to have him back.

    1. I agree! Every time I see Biden, and Obama in the back ground shadows. Not to even mention Harris! It all makes me sick to even thimk about the election being stolen. Trump and Pence would have had this whole situation handled already! It sure makes you appreciate what we had! Before these two Loony Tunes took over! God Bless America! Land that we all love!

  5. Harris knows that the illegal alien invasion is going exactly as the democrats had planned! Harris is a open border democrat!

  6. get rid of Biden and Harris. Harris isnt even trying to do anything,she needs to be fired and Biden needs to give it up and go back home

  7. Biden/Harris and their puppet master is incompetent. They stole the election. They are weak and are not leaders. They have everyone laughing at America because of their lack of common sense and stupidity. They lie, cheat, and try to cover up. They need to be removed from office NOW!

  8. Maybe she’s looking for new knee pads!
    After all she’s so important no one noticed she was gone!

  9. national guard needs to be moved down there and close the borders send them all back. it’s very obvious Biden open the border to revenge president Trump so unnecessary it’s like they’re a bunch of 2-year-olds fighting over a truck it’s not that simple. they need to remove the whole bunch including Pelosi and put the president back in where he belongs he would have won the election had it not been rigged let’s try and save this country and put president Trump back in and see if he can fix what they broke.

  10. Dictator Biden MIA I guess he’s in his Basement in Delaware. Heels Up Harris is MIA maybe she’s in Biden’s Basement in Delaware as well. I mean after all we know she likes older men.

  11. Oh so Lara Trump goes on Fox News and slams Harris for not visiting the border….big deal. Until the biased left media starts criticizing the illegjtimate Biden administration, Harris and Big Joe don’t give a damn what Lara or any Trump says.

  12. Far as I’m concerned Biden and Kamila are a pair of non functional leaders that need to be replaced with Trump and Pence who have more intelligence. God save us from Biden and Kamila

  13. How is it that just anybody can create a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture more than an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you seriously think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not genuinely say anything?
