Trump really nailed CNN this time!
During a law enforcement roundtable, the President took a moment to deliver a hilarious message to CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding the reporter’s recent border visit.
See, Acosta attempted to downplay the seriousness of the border crisis … by going to a well-protected portion of it.
As a result, the leftists news company’s agenda fell flat.
The video was widely mocked, as it showed Acosta in front of a STEEL fence, in broad daylight, marveling that there were no people in sight trying to enter the country illegally.
I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu

Do border crossers normally swarm protected portions of the border? And do they attempt the crossing during the middle of the day?
Of course not, and Acosta’s visit completely backfired in the eyes of many.
In his attempt to show there’s “no border crisis,” he actually proved that walls work. And Trump let him know it.
“President Donald Trump thanked CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Friday for filming a video on the Southern border with a steel barrier on it.
‘Good job yesterday,’ Trump said to Acosta after spotting him at the White House.
‘I appreciate your sales pitch.'”
Acosta actually became a useful liberal pawn this time!
And as usual, Donald didn’t hold back:
“As President Trump said, ‘Some people are dumb. Great promotion for us.’”
Acosta’s unprofessional, non-news attempt to push the same false rhetoric failed. Plain and simple.
If Acosta really wants to understand the border crisis, he should should try reporting from places like the Yuma sector in Arizona, where 650 illegal immigrants were apprehended in just two days.
Or he should try reporting from Tijuana, where thousands of Hondurans from the migrant caravan are still attempting to overwhelm border agents and enter the country.
The border crisis is VERY real, and there’s nothing the Democrats can do to hide it.
But it helps when they trip over their own feet!
