Abbott Endorses Trump During Border Visit Sunday

EDINBURG, Texas – Texas Governor Greg Abbott endorsed President Donald Trump Sunday in Edinburg, TX during a Thanksgiving visit to Texas National Guard soldiers and DPS troopers.  

“We need a president who’s going to secure the border. We need a president who’s going to restore law and order in the United States of America. Not letting these criminals run ransack over the stores that you see images of almost nightly. We need a president who’s going to restore world peace as opposed to this outbreak of warfare under Joe Biden. We need Donald J. Trump back as our president of the United States of America,” Abbott said.

Governor Greg Abbott and the 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump today thanked and served meals to over 240 Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers, and other service members stationed on the border over Thanksgiving for Operation Lone Star (OLS) in Edinburg. 

“Texas is forever grateful for our brave service members who work day and night to protect and defend our state and our nation,” said Governor Abbott. “I am proud to be with President Trump here today to thank the thousands of Texas National Guard soldiers and DPS troopers who are stationed along the border for Operation Lone Star to respond to President Biden’s border crisis. This Thanksgiving as they are away from their families and loved ones, may we remember the sacrifices these brave men and women in uniform make every day to ensure the safety and security of all Texans and Americans.”

The Governor and President Trump were joined by DPS Director Steve McCraw, Adjutant General of Texas Major General Thomas Suelzer, Texas Division of Emergency Management Chief Nim Kidd, DPS Officers Association President Richard L. Jankovsky, Texas Border Czar Banks, and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd in thanking OLS service members for their tireless work and around-the-clock efforts to secure the border and keep Texans—and Americans—safe.

Prior to serving meals with President Trump, Governor Abbott received a briefing on OLS vehicles and border security assets Texas deployed to stem the flood of illegal immigration, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and dangerous weapons pouring into Texas from Mexico.

Ridiculous. If anyone, aside from the “bad actors” (on BOTH sides), should be held accountable it’s Nancy Pelosi…who refused National Guard protection at the Capital because of the “optics” involved ;)

So who made the call to not deploy National Guard troops? I find it hard to believe that Pelosi knew nothing.,.especially since the actual counting of the electoral votes was to take place in her chamber?

Also.,.who is Ray Epps, and why was he never arrested although clear footage exists on his direct involvement at the Capital?
