Trump blasts Dems for caring more about Ukraine’s borders than America’s

In a stinging condemnation of Democrat hypocrisy as relates to ongoing Russian aggression against its neighbor, former President Donald Trump on Saturday observed that the American left’s vehement declarations about the sanctity of Ukraine’s borders stand in stark contrast to the position they have taken here at home, as Breitbart reports.

Speaking to attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, Trump declared, “What has happened in Ukraine is a catastrophic disaster. But it isn’t really that interesting that so many Democrat politicians in Washington, they seem to be rushing to microphones to declare that Ukraine’s borders are sacred.”

Highlighting the gulf between the principles so loudly trumpeted by Democrats in recent days and their actions when it comes to the southern border here at home, Trump noted, “[t]hey want to say their borders are sacred, and we feel for Ukraine in so many ways, but Ukraine’s sovereignty must be defended at all costs, they say, even while they’re destroying our own borders and surrendering our own sovereignty.”

Trump drew a stark contrast to liberal posturing on Ukraine to their dereliction of duty when it comes to our own territorial integrity, noting, “We have a border that’s a catastrophe. We have people coming into our country that we don’t want. They will not be good for our country.”

Late last month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson put an even finer point on Trump’s thesis by highlighting the urgency with which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was urging her colleagues to support a measure known as the “Defending Ukraine’s Sovereignty Act.”

Before providing context to the legislation, Carlson explained, “On a conference call just hours ago, Pelosi demanded that her members vote immediately on a piece of legislation she says is critical to our national security. The bill she’s talking about, among other things, affirms the central importance of national borders.”

Carlson continued, opining, “Without a border you can’t have a country. And Nancy Pelosi firmly believes that. In fact, she believes it so strongly she’s directing the Biden administration to develop an urgent new plan to keep the border secure.”

Noting that his audience might be surprised to hear about such a development, given the unprecedented crisis at our own southern border that has raged since Biden took office, he quickly offered the critical missing piece of the puzzle, namely, that the border Pelosi was referencing was not America’s, but Ukraine’s.

Considering Biden and the Democrats’ blatant refusal to enforce existing immigration law or return to the effective, Trump-era border policies that prioritized American sovereignty, the left’s sanctimonious preaching about the necessity of preserving Ukraine’s territorial integrity intact rings extraordinarily hollow.
