NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: During the March 22 broadcast of 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough drew attention to former President Donald Trump's insistence on taking full responsibility for the situation at the southern border, as reported in The New York Post.

The front-page headline titled 'Onslaught' detailed an incident where over 100 migrants surged the border, overpowering the Texas National Guard. The migrants stormed across the border

While critics of President Joe Biden seized upon the chaotic event to critique his border policies, Scarborough, holding up the newspaper to the camera, emphasized Trump's prior statement, shouting, "The only thing the Post didn’t tell you is Donald Trump said, “Blame me for this.”

"Donald Trump said, 'Kill the bill and blame me for everything that happens after this point'. Donald Trump said, 'Blame me'. So yes, Donald, we are blaming you."

He continued, "We’re blaming Mini-Me [Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA)] for following your orders. We’re blaming Republicans who begged for a tough border bill, but like The Wall Street Journal editorial page said, couldn’t take “yes” for an answer."

"So yes, there is an onslaught in the southern border still, and it’s all Donald Trump’s fault. You know who says that? Donald Trump. Donald Trump says blame him for this. So we will," he added.

Trump openly bragged about his involvement in derailing the bipartisan border bill in the Senate, introduced by conservative Republican Senator James Lankford from Oklahoma.

Trump asserted, "You give illegals taxpayer-funded lawyers, so they have millions of dollars in this agreement, in this deal, which we by the way killed. I think we killed it. I think it's dead!"
