CNN’s Jim Acosta claps back at Sarah Sanders for ‘twisting his words’ in tweet

Published

CNN’s Jim Acosta is not afraid to put President Donald Trump’s administration in their place. On Thursday, he quickly responded to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter after she twisted his reporting.

Acosta is on the US-Mexico border reporting on Trump’s visit and the ongoing government shutdown. Trump has continually said that a wall is critical because there is a “crisis” at the border.

“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,” Acosta Tweeted.

 

Sanders responded by tweeting, “When I went with President @realDonaldTrump to the border today I never imagined @Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim!”

Acosta clapped backed by reminding Sanders of the time she edited a video in an attempt to falsely accuse him of harming a White House intern.

“While I’m glad she didn’t doctor this video, unfortunately, @PressSec is twisting the truth again. As we have been reporting today there are other sections of the border that don’t have walls or slats. Yet, the residents here feel safe,” he said.

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
