Northern Command Commander General Glen VanHerck admitted to America on March 9 that Joe Biden NEVER asked him for a briefing on America's southern border.
Rep. Jim Banks, a Republican from Indiana, asked VanHerck, "Has the president of the United States requested a briefing from you about the situation at the border?"
"Not that I'm aware of," came the response from VanHerck.
Banks was FURIOUS to learn that Biden isn't taking EVERY possible step to protect Americans from the threats coming over that border, from criminals to fentanyl.
"107,375 Americans have died from drug overdoses, specifically related to fentanyl — a leading cause of death of Americans my age in this country today," Banks said. "We know that the vast majority of that fentanyl is coming across the southern border." He added:
It surprises me greatly, frankly, angers me that the president the United States of America is so tone deaf and has turned a blind eye that he’s not asking you — the top general in the United States of America tasked with overseeing drug interdiction at our southern border — to come and brief him on the leading cause of death of Americans of working age in this country.
Me too, Jim.
