Donald Trump says the border crisis could “destroy America” in the ex-president’s first major TV interview since leaving office.

Mr Trump attacked the Biden administration’s handling of the immigration surge and told Sean Hannity of Fox News that the president should have stuck with his crackdown.

“They’re playing it down as much as they can play it down. It’s a horrible situation, could destroy our country,” said the one-term president.

In an advanced clip of the interview, Mr Trump told Mr Hannity of his concern at “tens of thousands” of people crossing the southern border with Mexico.

“People are pouring in. But you’ll see something as the months go by like you’ve never seen before. Already it’s like you’ve never seen before. There’s never been anything like what’s happened at our border,” Mr Trump told Hannity.

“People are coming in by the tens of thousands. They’re walking in. They – we had – all they had to do was leave it alone,” he added.

Mr Trump’s interview with Hannity was his first sit down with a major news network since he left Washington DC in January for his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

He has refused to confirm if he will run for president again in 2024, but told Hannity that the GOP must have a MAGA platform if the party wants to retake Congress in 2022.

“If they want to win, yes. We’ve expanded the Republican Party. If you want to win and win big, you have to do that. You have to do it,” he said.
