Joe Biden promised he would be transparent with the American people. Unfortunately, that isn’t what has happened. His administration — most notably White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki — has repeatedly deflected, hidden information, refused to answer simple questions, and all around betrayed Americans where that promise is concerned. On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace held Psaki to account for all that.
“The only way we know how bad conditions are for some 5,000 minors in his Border Patrol facilities is because of these pictures that members of Congress have released on their own,” Wallace said. “Jen, these kids are living in these conditions now.”
“They’re not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed,” Wallace continued. “So why not allow reporters and camera crews in on a pool basis based domain safely to show the American people what’s happening in those border patrol facilities right now?”
“Chris, we are absolutely committed to that, the president is committed to that, I’m committed to that, Secretary Mayorkas is committed to that,” Psaki replied before Wallace interrupted, “When?”
“We want to provide access into the border patrol facility,” Psaki insisted. “We are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic. We want to keep these kids safe, keep the staff safe, but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities, and we are working to get that done as soon as we can.”
“But just to clarify, you allowed a camera crew in to see the HHS facilities, but we are talking about here are the Border Patrol facilities, the detention cells, you know there is a law that they are not allowed to be there for more than 72 hours, many of them are there for ten days,” Wallace said. “At this point, in terms of allowing access to Border Patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration.”
This is true. The Trump administration was the most transparent in the history of the United States. Biden and Democrats love to attack President Trump, but the fact is that he was always and always will be interested in serving the American people. Watch it below:
