Jim Acosta, the chief White House correspondent for CNN and one of the most unpopular reporters with the president, accused President Trump of Concocting the national emergency by the U.S Southern border.
What do you say to your critics who say that you’re creating a national emergency, that you’re concocting a national emergency in order to get your wall? Jim Acosta asked.
“Your questions is very political” Trump fired back. Adding “I’ll ask the Angel Moms. What Do you think, you think I’m creating something?” “Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their son’s,” he continued.
This was right before lifting Acosta up to the world and letting him land in deep shit.
Your question is a very political question, you have an agenda, you’re CNN, you’re fake news, you have an agenda.
Adding that the numbers Acosta gave regarding the crime statistics “are wrong.”
Trump further gave Acosta a take home assignment. “take a look at our prison population, see how many of them, percentage wise, are illegal aliens.” Just see, go ahead and see.” “Its a fake question” the president concluded.
