Biden says he won’t go to US border because of ‘more important things’
President Biden said Tuesday he won’t visit the US-Mexico border during a day trip to Arizona because he has “more important things” to handle — despite the record-smashing surge of people illegally crossing into the US.
“Why go to a border state and not visit the border?” a reporter asked Biden on the White House lawn as he departed for Arizona.
The president replied, “Because there are more important things going on. They are going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise in the state.”
