Donalds Calls Biden's Border Decision a 'slap in the face' to Armed Forces

The Florida Republican has made his opinion on Joe Biden very clear.

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) is calling out the Biden administration for their decision to send VA resources to the border to address the crisis that Donalds believes Biden holds responsibility for. Since the announcement that President Joe Biden (D) was going to end Title 42, Republicans have been hitting the border issue with consistency.

Donalds stated in a tweet:

“The Biden administration’s plan to take money away from the VA to fund the mess he created at our border is a slap in the face to the men and women who’ve served in our Armed Services. Not a single penny should leave the VA to fuel Biden’s border crisis. Who agrees?”

This sentiment was echoed just a few weeks ago when Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) made a similar claim when she went on to Fox Business.

She stated this in a tweet as well.

“The Biden Administration is now sending VA Doctors to the Border, prioritizing illegals over our veterans, and it’s disgusting. This crisis ends when Republicans take back the House and the Senate and we secure this border.”

Will the “Red Wave” show up, or will the Democrats be able to secure at least one of the chambers in the legislative branch? Historically, it’s almost impossible for the party in power in the White House to retain both.
