This was not the first time that Tomi referenced the presumed need for a mass deportation. Back in May, the commentator and television personality commented on X/Twitter that “millions of deportations better happen on day one of the next presidency.”

Tomi’s Comments Received Mixed Reactions On Social Media

Tomi’s comments regarding the border deal and “mass deportation” concept went viral by generating a high number of responses. There were quite a few comments made in support of her stance.

Cardi B stated on X/Twitter that Tomi was “so blinded with racism” that she didn’t realize the decisions that then-President Trump made were “destroying the country” that Tomi claimed to love. Tomi responded to Cardi B’s comments by stating that it didn’t make her “political rambling any less moronic” and followed it up with a “Build That Wall” hashtag.

Conservative voters and lawmakers reportedly aligned with the Trump wing that turned against the decision to give money and weapons to Ukraine for defense purposes. The Senate still wants to pass a bill for supplemental aid, but it is now unclear if that effort will succeed.

Mitch McConnell Changes Mind, Votes Against Bill He Championed

Perhaps one of the most shocking revelations was the voting decision made by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell during the Republican conference. He worked hard behind the scenes to champion the highly-anticipated immigration and foreign aid bill, but then voted against it.

When interviewed by reporters on Tuesday, McConnell expressed that they had “no real chance here to make a law.” This statement was made after McConnell pleaded with the GOP for months to prevent Vladimir Putin from making incursions into Europe.

Biden Could Potentially Use Border Bill Failure As Campaign Strategy

President Biden made it clear that he would blame any failure of the border deal on the Republicans in Congress. During an interview from the White House on Tuesday, Biden expressed that “the American people are going to know why” if the bill failed.

According to CNN, this could present an effective campaign strategy for Biden to use against the Trump campaign. He could essentially argue that a border deal was in development until it was shot down by Trump.

Biden Claims Trump Would Rather ‘Weaponize’ The Border Issue

An email blast from the Biden campaign stated that Donald Trump directed all MAGA Republicans to “kill the toughest and fairest reforms to secure the border in decades” since he thought it would help him as a political strategy.

Biden expanded on this in an X/Twitter post when he referenced Trump’s decision to accept blame from senators for the bill’s collapse at a recent campaign rally. Biden responded to that by saying, “You got it.” Biden further expressed that Trump would “rather weaponize this issue than actually solve it.”
