1.Texas Gov. Abbott says Harris hasn’t called him about migrant crisis since VP was appointed as border czar
Fox News-Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he hasn’t heard from Vice President Harris since she was appointed by President Biden as the border czar to address the migrant crisis back in March.
During an interview Tuesday’s episode of the Ruthless podcast, Abbott was asked by co-host Josh Holmes if Harris has “even so much has placed a phone call” to him regarding the surge of illegal immigrants that the Lone Star State has faced this year.
“No. So I haven’t,” Abbott responded. “The president hasn’t called. The vice president hasn’t called. The only person I’ve talked to are some folks in the Department of Homeland Security. And that was a long time ago.
Sen. Ted Cruz on the #BidenBorderCrisis “In 5 months in office, Joe Biden couldn’t be bothered to go down to the border & see the humanitarian disaster his policies have created… Harris who was, ‘in charger of the border,’ seems determined to go anywhere she can but the border.” pic.twitter.com/8utFy9LqsO

DML: Do the math. Add 600,000 illegal aliens cross the border under the Biden administration’s watch to the number of illegal aliens who are packing their bags all around the world today with a determination to get here for free school, healthcare, and Biden Bucks. The math shows the number of illegals grows into the millions for 2021. And yet, Harris does not make even one call to the state getting crushed the hardest, Texas. This tells you where the border crisis sits on the list of concerns in the White House. It’s not even on the list.
2.Biden and Putin square off
AP -U.S. President Joe Biden and Russia’s Vladimir Putin have arrived on Wednesday at the lush lakeside Swiss mansion for their highly anticipated summit, a moment of consequential diplomacy at a time when both leaders agree that relations between their countries are at an all-time low.
The two leaders shook hands while appearing briefly before cameras with Swiss President Guy Parmelin, who welcomed them to Switzerland, and then entered the mansion for what is expected to be four or five hours of talks.
For months, they have traded sharp rhetoric. Biden has repeatedly called out Putin for malicious cyberattacks by Russian-based hackers on U.S. interests, a disregard for democracy with the jailing of Russia’s foremost opposition leader and interference in American elections.
Biden and Putin are expected to discuss a range of issues, including Iran and North Korea’s nuclear capabilities, Syria, the Arctic, strategic stability, arms control, climate change and COVID-19.

DML: Putin will destroy Biden. It’s almost to the point of where we’ve got to pray for good weather around the world so that no person stays inside watching TV or reading the internet. It’s the only way to disguise how weak we have become under Biden.
3. Trump to visit Texas border
WaPo -Former president Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border later this month at the invitation of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a critic of Biden administration’s immigration policies that he says have triggered a crisis in his state.
