Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time," says that President Joe Biden's sudden reversal on adding sections to the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will be a "disaster" for the Democrat Party. 

"I feel like this is a disaster for the Democrats," Maher said during his monologue Friday, according to Fox News. "Trump today said he wants Biden to apologize because it looks like Biden was adopting his policy. This does not look good for the Democrats."

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wrote a notice Thursday in the federal register about the construction of 18-foot-tall steel fencing that will cover about 20 miles along the border in Texas.

"Also they look like sanctuary city hypocrites," Maher said in reference to Democrats. "They were the ones who said, 'Look, we're the compassionate people. Everybody should get a shot here.' And then when they started sending — I mean the quotes from Eric Adams, this is the mayor of liberal New York, ‘This issue will destroy our city.’"

Biden's time in the White House has seen record numbers of border encounters, with more than 7 million people illegally entering the country during his tenure.

Biden came out against the border wall at the start of his presidency. 

"Like every nation, the United States has a right and a duty to secure its borders and protect its people against threats," the White House said in a 2021 press release. "But building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution. It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security."

Former President Trump who ran on border security in 2016 and building the wall, demanded an apology on TRUTH Social.

"As I have stated often, over thousands of years, there are only two things that have consistently worked, wheels, and walls!" Trump wrote. "Will Joe Biden apologize to me and America for taking so long to get moving..."
