President Donald Trump reportedly told television anchors that he didn’t want to make his national address Tuesday and he really didn’t want to go to the border on Thursday.

The trip has already proven to be a disaster for the president as he delivered the media to a border that is not being attacked with a crisis.

CNN’s Jim Acosta stood at the razor-wire fence between the United States and Mexico, panning the camera east and west. The breeze blowing hard across the open plain was the only movement. There wasn’t a person in sight. There was no crowd knocking down fences. There were no coyotes sneaking people through the fence.

“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 said into his cell phone camera.

“There’s no sign of the national emergency the president is talking about,” Acosta said.

He interviewed Nadine, who has lived in the McAllen, Texas area for about 10 years. She’s never seen any of what Trump has described happening on the border.

Talking with Acosta, she said that the only “shootings” she’s heard of is local crime, it has nothing to do with immigrants crossing the border. She called the area “very calm” and “very safe.”

The so-called disaster seemed to be that the president gave the media a visual of anything but a border crisis.

As the battle over replacing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — who died Friday from complications of pancreatic cancer — takes shape in Washington, D.C., Republican senators who previously refused to hold a vote on former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick are now having their words thrown in their faces.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Saturday played a devastating supercut that features Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explaining why they would not vote on Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.
