President Trump just took a swipe at CNN’s Jim Acosta during his Rose Garden speech to declare a national emergency to build a wall.
Acosta has been a thorn in Trump’s side from the beginning of his presidency and today was no exception. Acosta insinuated that the declaration of a national emergency is phony and not needed.
President Trump shot back by asking the Angel Moms who were sitting in the front row if they believe securing our southern border is an emergency:
ACOSTA: “I believe in facts… What do you say to your critics who say you are creating a national emergency?”
TRUMP: “Ask the Angel Moms. Do you think I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons.”

The Democrats and CNN would love nothing more than to have President Trump fail, but in doing so, they betray the American people who want a secure border.
The reporters are lying about record low numbers on illegal immigration:
415k in 2017
521k in 2018
240k so far in FY 2019 (expected to be 600k)
BUILD THE WALL!
