In an exclusive “Hannity”, investigative journalist Sara Carter sat down with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei to discuss Vice President Kamala Harris’ summit with him as well as the US border crisis and how it also affects Guatemala.
Carter, a Fox News contributor, spoke with Giammattei shortly after Harris traveled to Mexico; after what both liberal and conservative critics called a disastrous visit to the Northern Triangle of California Democrats.
