The southern border is expected to be a major issue in the 2020 presidential election and President Donald Trump is already drawing contrast with his Democratic presidential rival over the matter.
Speaking from Yuma, Ariz. on Tuesday, Trump said he supports America’s borders and boundaries in ways that former Vice President Joe Biden does not.
“Most important, election, November 3rd. Get out and vote,” he said. “Joe Biden is the puppet of the radical left wing movement that seeks the complete elimination of America’s borders and boundaries. They want to take the wall down. They don’t want to have borders. They want to have sanctuary cities. Lots of bad things they want.”
The migrant crisis at the U.S. southern border hounded the first term of Trump in office.
His administration has drawn criticism for seeking to introduce new asylum rules to curb migration from Central America.
