Angel moms, whose American citizen children lost their lives at the hands of illegal aliens, joined President Trump in the front row of his press conference where he explained why he’s declaring a national emergency as a way to secure our porous southern border.

During his press conference, CNN’s Jim Acosta attacked President Trump and tried to embarrass him by suggesting that he’s “creating” or “concocting a national emergency” in order to get his wall, accusing him of not being able to get the wall any other way. President Trump brilliantly deferred to the Angel Moms, who were seated in the front row of his press conference, holding up pictures of their children, who were all American citizens killed by illegal aliens. Trump told Acosta, “Ask the Angel moms, Trump said, pointing to the mothers sitting in the front row, “What do you think? Do you think I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons. Okay?”
Trump slammed CNN’s Jim Acosta, saying that “Your question is a very political question because you have an agenda. You’re CNN— you’re fake news. You have an agenda.” Trump circled back to an accusation Acosta made earlier when he accused the Trump administration of overblowing the criminal element crossing our borders illegally. Trump, who spends quite a bit of time with law enforcement on our borders and with ICE and Homeland Security agents, slammed Acosta with percentages of illegal aliens taking up space in our federal prisons, telling Acosta to stop making up facts. “Take a look at our federal prison population. See how many of them percentage wise are illegal aliens” Trump continued, “Just go ahead and see.” Finally, President Trump ended his time with one last admonishment for Acosta, saying, “It’s a fake question.”
President Trump clashes with CNN journalist…again.
Jim Acosta says critics would say Trump is "creating a national emergency", to which the president replies "fake news".

CNN’s Jim Acosta was surrounded by Angel Moms following the press conference where he was confronted for attempting to prove that criminal illegal aliens aren’t a serious problem in America. Watch here, as the moms let him have it and Acosta simply nods his head up and down and smiles. (Gateway Pundit video)
After the heated exchange, CNN’s Jim Acosta attempted to do some damage control, after he was humiliated by President Trump for his lack of concern for the lives of young American citizens at the hands of criminal illegal aliens. The Democrat Party and the mainstream media have continued to provide cover for people who cross into the United States illegally. President Trump is the only person in our government who is brave enough to call them out.
Here’s Acosta attempting to do damage control following his ignorant and insensitive remarks.
