CNN reporter stunned as Trump repeatedly mispronounces the abbreviation of Customs and Border Protection

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump introduced a U.S. Border Patrol agent by saying “he speaks perfect English.”

CNN’s White House reporter, Jeremy Diamond, was stunned that President Trump would make such a disparaging comment while at an event aimed towards honoring officials of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“It was an interesting moment during this event during which the president was trying to honor CBP and I.C.E. agents. The president pointed out, in particular, this man named Adrian — he didn’t mention his last name. He brought him up to commend him for his actions,” Diamond told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin.

He added, “This officer seems to be of Latino descent. It is interesting to have the president make that kind of a comment about a U.S.  law enforcement officer,  of course, he speaks perfect English — he is a U.S. law enforcement officer.”

Diamond said President Trump also mispronounced the abbreviation CBP six times.

“The president referred at least six times to CBP as CBC. Unclear why, but we were able to have a look at the teleprompter. It does appear to have said CBP — Customs and Border Protection agency. That’s another notable moment there,” he concluded.

Here is a thread Twitter user Kayvon Behroozian posted to Twitter, tagging local media outlets, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin and Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best.

Apparently Officer Campbell (see thread — mustache) of @SeattlePD maced the CHILD crying in this video.
