Watch: Biden Ignores Question About Laken Riley’s Murder, Warns Against Climate Change During Border Visit

On Thursday, President Biden refused to address the death of Georgia college student Laken Riley during his visit to the US-Mexico border in Texas.

Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student at Georgia’s Augusta University, was allegedly killed last week by an illegal immigrant from Venezuela. Biden refused to take questions from reporters who had asked about Laken’s death.

During the press briefing, a reporter asked Biden: “Do you bear any responsibility for Laken Riley’s death?”

Biden did not answer the question and proceeded to walk off the stage.

Watch:

Jose Antonio Ibarra, 26, was arrested on murder charges on Saturday after Riley had been found dead in the woods near campus after going for a jog. Riley died of wounds consistent with blunt force trauma to the head, according to authorities.

Ibarra was booked into Clarke County Jail and has been charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated battery, and other criminal violations including kidnapping.

Authorities revealed that Ibarra illegally entered the US through El Paso, Texas in September 2022 under President Biden’s watch.

During his speech, the Democrat president issued a warning about climate change, calling “deniers” of climate change “Neanderthals.”

“I love some of my Neanderthal friends who still think there’s no climate change.”

Watch:

Both Biden and former President Trump visited the US-Mexico border in Texas on Thursday. Biden has not yet publicly commented on Riley’s murder, although the White House issued a vague statement earlier this week.

Trump visited Eagle Pass, which has been at the center of Biden’s historic illegal immigration crisis, while Biden avoided the area and delivered a speech from Brownsville.

Trump took the opportunity to address Riley’s “barbaric” death during a speech in Eagle Pass.

“Joe Biden will never say Laken Riley’s name, but we will say it and we will remember. We’re not going to forget her,” said Trump.

Watch:

Trump, the GOP presidential frontrunner, explained that incidents like this should not be allowed to happen in America, and blamed President Biden and his administration’s open-border policies for Riley’s death.

    Biden probably doesn’t know what the reporter is talking about.

  • PJ says:

    He is a low life coward, and that is why he will not mention Laken Riley’s name.

  • A. Michaels says:

    If you voted for Biden, just how “smart” are you feeling these days? Don’t feel bad though, we’ve known all along that you’re not very “smart”.
