It’s hard to believe, but once upon a time, immigration was a subject that President Trump dominated. It even won him what was believed by everyone but Republican and independent voters to be a ridiculous run for the White House.
In 2020, though, Trump rarely made a peep about his most potent issue, the one that inspired a slogan chanted by hundreds of thousands of his supporters at rallies across the country: “Build. The. Wall!”
No, though Trump’s administration had spent his term building hundreds of miles of new walls on the southern border, slowed down the thousands of bogus asylum claims coming up from Central America, and cut the immigration growth rate by two-thirds, Trump wasn’t so interested in talking up his success in that area. He chose instead to spend the campaign defending his handling of the pandemic (an argument that he could never win, even if he’s right) and grieving over the “WITCH HUNT”
