Joe Briben' said today that the US will continue air drops to Ukraine. He meant Gaza. Par for the course for Joe Briben'.

One thing's for sure about today's events at the border. Joe Briben is trying to protect illegal aliens while President Donald Trump is trying to protect America and Americans.

In an effort to misdirect from his own severe cognitive decline, Joe Briben' is trying to tell you that President Donald Trump called his wife Melania "Mercedes", when in reality he was addressing Mercedes Schlapp, who was in the front row of his rally. Don't let the demons gaslight you anymore.

Joe Briben' copying President Trump again by announcing he's going to the border (on the same day no less) days after President Trump said he was going. Just vote for the real deal in November, not this copying nonsense.
