He argued that this would be a way to hold Biden accountable for the border crisis, which has seen a significant influx of migrants. “We need to use every single point of leverage,” Perry said. “There's no reason that we need to invite him to get more propaganda and actually blame the American people for the crisis he's caused.” See Also: Trump Vs.
