Former Gov. Nikki Haley criticized former President Donald Trump for playing politics with the U.S. southern border crisis, particularly opposing the Senate’s immigration deal to potentially leverage the issue in the 2024 election.

She emphasized the urgency of addressing the border situation and stressed the need for a robust immigration law.

Haley expressed concern that delaying action due to political motives could jeopardize national security.

“Let’s turn to the crisis at the U.S. southern border. Bipartisan negotiators in the U.S. Senate, they are set to release the text of a deal on border security soon. Donald Trump, as you know, is pushing Republican Senators to oppose the deal in part because he wants to run on the issue in 2024 in this election year. You call that a mistake. Are you saying the former president is playing politics with the border?” Dana Bash asked.

“I think nobody should be playing politics with the border. He shouldn’t be getting involved telling Republicans to wait until the election because we don’t want this to help Biden win,” Haley said.

“We can’t wait wait one more day. You have millions of people who have come to that board, they are not being vetted. America is acting like it’s September 10. It only takes one. This is not a time to play politics,” she said.

“Is he?” Bash asked.

“Of course he is. He is absolutely playing politics by telling them not to do anything. What I think they need to do is they have to put a tough immigration law in place,” Haley said.
