President Donald Trump shut down CNN’s resident activist-reporter during a press conference on Friday — again.
When asked by Acosta about what he would say to critics that believe he is “concocting a national emergency” to build the wall — the president turned to the Angel Moms (women whose children have been murdered by illegal aliens) to let them answer him.
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".

“What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating a national emergency, that you’re concocting a national emergency here in order to get your wall?” Acosta asked.
“I’ll ask the angel moms — what do you think, do you think I’m creating something?” President Trump responded.
“Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons,” Trump added.
One of the Angel Moms could be heard responding and saying, “this is real.”

“Your question is a very political question, because you have an agenda,” Trump concluded. “You’re CNN, you’re fake news. You have an agenda.”
