Republicans react to report of Biden selling off pieces of Trump’s border wall

Republicans reacted to reports that the Biden administration is quietly selling off parts of former President Donald J. Trump’s border wall to prevent them from being used if Democrats lose control of the White House in next year’s election.

The New York Post reported that the Biden regime has been auctioning off unused portions of the wall for “peanuts” through, an online auction house that specializes in government and military surplus.

According to the outlet, the website has sold 81 lots of “square structural tubes” intended to be used for vertical bollards in the wall’s 30-foot tall panels for about $2 million, and on one day last week, “netted $154,200 for 729 of the 28-foot-tall hollow beams, sold in five separate lots for an average $212 apiece.”

The unused border wall components aren’t specifically identified as materials that were to be used for the immigration control purposes that they were intended for.

“We are legally not allowed to mention these are the border wall materials, or we could lose our jobs,” a source from told the business and financial newsletter The Daily Upside which also reported on the regime’s sneaky sales. “But that’s what they are – 110 percent.”

“With all the news about Trump right now, I don’t think they want to cause any more chaos,” the anonymous source told the outlet, opining on why the fire sale hasn’t made headlines. “But this is a huge deal and with everything that’s going on with Trump, it’s amazing to me that here’s the wall, being sold behind Americans’ backs.”

On the day that he was inaugurated as the nation’s 46th president, Joe Biden brought an end to the construction of the border wall, calling the project a “waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security.”

The news caught the attention of GOP lawmakers who blasted the auctioning of the border wall materials.

“This sale is a wasteful and ludicrous decision by the Biden administration that only serves as further proof they have no shame,” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) who sponsored the Finish It Act, a bill that the excess materials be used for the construction of the southwestern border wall, told the New York Post, blasting the sales as “outrageous, behind-the-scenes maneuvering.”

“Leaving the border open to terrorists while selling border security materials at a loss is Bidenomics in a nutshell,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a co-sponsor of the bill told the outlet.

“The pennies made from selling the border wall will not be enough to pay the families who suffer from a criminal act committed by someone who crossed our open borders during the Biden administration,”  Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) also blasted the “reckless” sales.

“Our borders continue to be overrun by an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants, turning every district into a border district, and compromising our national security,” she said.

“The federal government needs to be utilizing every tool in the toolbox to secure our border,” said Rep. Juan Ciscomani (R-Ariz.) who represents the district where the unused border components are being stored as they await auction. “Instead of putting these materials to their intended use, they have been squandered, first collecting dust in the desert and now being auctioned off.”
