Donald Trump served Thanksgiving meals to law enforcement officials combating illegal immigration at the southern border.
The former president took selfies and delivered meals to the agents Sunday near McAllen, Texas along with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
Those attending the meal on Sunday were Texas State Troopers, Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Department of Public Safety officers and others who will be stationed along the southern border over the Thanksgiving holiday this week.
‘Gov. Abbott recognizes that no president has done more than Donald Trump to secure our border,’ a statement from Trump’s campaign noted.
Video and images of the event on Sunday showed Trump and Abbott serving the meals, while the ex-president would shake hands and pose for selfies with the agents in Edinburg, Texas.
On Saturday, Trump delivered remarks at a rally in Fort Dodge, Iowa where he asked for voters in the first-in-the-nation primary state to caucus for him on January 15.
During his remarks in Iowa, Trump laid out his plan to ‘terminate every open borders policy of the Biden administration.’
The trip to Iowa comes as polls show Trump remaining at least 30 points ahead of the rest of the primary field – with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis remaining in distant second place, trailed by former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
