Trump derides drug and human trafficking boom at southern border: They’ve seen their income ‘skyrocket’

by Summer Lane

President Donald Trump went after the drug cartels and human traffickers pouring across the southern border in a fiery speech delivered in Mesa, Arizona, on Sunday night. “The cartels and human traffickers have seen their income skyrocket,” Trump told the crowd.

In Arizona, the unsecured southern border has been a massive sticking point with potential voters ahead of the midterm elections. Trump told supporters attending the Save America rally that there was a “2500 percent” increase in the criminals’ income since he had left the White House.

“We had the safest border in the history of our country,” Trump reflected, talking about his administration’s work to secure the border.

President Trump delivered remarks to a crowd of excited Arizonans under the hot desert sun, revving up his base of MAGA supporters to head to the polls and support his endorsed candidates in the Grand Canyon State, like GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake.

“…If you want to stop the destruction of the country and save the American Dream – the good old American Dream…then you have to vote Republicans up and down the line,” Trump said.

He also warned voters what the Democrats would do if they maintained political control following the midterms. “Mark Kelly and the Democrat extremists will flood the country with tens of millions of illegal aliens,” he cautioned.

Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., is running for reelection against Trump-endorsed GOP Senate candidate Blake Masters, who appeared at the rally on Sunday night.
