Joe Biden joked about how he “should be flattered people are coming because they think I’m a nice guy,” while discussing the border crisis during his first press conference as president.
The response came from a gushing question from fangirl PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, who was called on based on a list of names Biden already had at the podium.
Alcindor noted that the perception of Biden was that he was a moral, decent man, and that it is encouraging people to come — even though he has said now is not the time to do so. “How do you resolve that tension and how are you choosing which families can stay?”
“I guess I should be flattered because people are coming because I’m a nice guy, that’s why this is happening,” Biden said.

“Does anybody suggest that there was a 31 percent increase under Trump because they were a nice guy? That’s not the reason they’re coming.” Biden said that people are coming because it is easier to travel across the desert in the winter.
As Gateway Pundit previously reported, foreigners flooding the border have said that they are doing so because they believe Biden “is going to be a good president for migrants.”
There is now a massive crisis at the border, as thousands of migrants are crossing each day — during a pandemic.
“Biden promised us that everything was going to change,” one of the migrants, Gladys Oneida Pérez Cruz. told The New York Times. “He hasn’t done it yet, but he is going to be a good president for migrants.”
The Times reported that another woman was in tears at the border saying, “Biden promised us!”
