White House Twists the Narrative Rebukes Speaker Johnson

In the interview, Johnson claimed to not know about Senate deliberations on the border measure but suggested that President Biden utilize his authority immediately and demand new legislation to protect the border. Bates called Johnson’s allegations “wildly swinging between inherently contradictory claims.”

Bates further claimed that Johnson’s resistance to Senate border discussions was part of a larger campaign to obstruct border security programs, fentanyl investments, and Border Patrol recruiting. Johnson denied that former President Trump’s opposition to the border bill affected his views, but the White House spokeswoman said it did.

Johnson said that he, not Trump, made border security decisions as House Speaker. He emphasized his longstanding call for addressing border issues’ root causes.
