House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) took aim at the Biden administration for ultimately failing the American people. In his weekly press briefing on Friday, McCarthy covered everything from the border and gun control to infrastructure.
He criticized Joe Biden’s executive orders, especially those targeting border security. McCarthy said the ongoing crisis came to fruition because of the administration’s poor decisions. McCarthy urged Kamala Harris to advise Biden to reverse the orders upon her return from the border.
The “Defund the Police” campaign—endorsed by Democrats—has decimated our law enforcement, pushed them to leave their profession, and in some cases have even put a target on their backs.
When Republicans are in the majority, we will FUND the police. https://t.co/R8pE0SrJaO

He then went on to demand clarity from China and suggested his Democrat colleagues join Republicans in holding the country accountable. McCarthy also pointed out what he called a “disingenuous infrastructure agreement,” saying Republicans encountered whiplash after watching Biden say there was a deal and then say there wasn’t.
