WATCH: Biden blames Trump for problems at the border, says he inherited “one god-awful mess”

Appearing on the Today show, President Biden suggested former President Trump is to blame for problems at the border.

Biden told Craig Melvin he inherited “one god-awful mess at the border” and also suffered from “the failure to have a real transition — cooperation from the last administration, like every other administration has done.”

Biden elaborated by saying “the two departments that didn’t give us access to virtually anything were the immigration and the Defense Department.”

Biden also said Trump had fired so many that they were “understaffed considerably.”
