WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump joined a chorus of Republicans on Thursday in mocking Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, on Twitter for a video the journalist posted showing areas of the border that had a wall.
Acosta, who traveled to Texas for the president's border visit, posted a video on Twitter of him walking alongside a steel-slated fence at the U.S.-Mexico border. He said he didn't "see anything resembling a national emergency."
"We're not seeing any kind of imminent danger. There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the McAllen, Texas, area," Acosta said. "No sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about. As a matter of fact, it's pretty tranquil down here."
Almost instantly, conservatives said the video showed that walls and barriers along the border were working. Fox News' Tucker Carlson used the video as part of an opening monologue. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders thanked Acosta, saying he was "doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK."
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.
