CNN's Jim Acosta to Trump: “What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating a national emergency?"

Trump to Jim Acosta: 'Ask the angel moms' if there's a border crisis

Democrats and liberal media outlets are a fussy bunch since President Donald Trump declared a national emergency to force funding and construction of a wall along the southern border. No liberal alleged journalist is more 'pants in a twist' than CNN's Jim Acosta.

President Trump and Jim Acosta clashed again on Friday during a Rose Garden press conference. 

“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.

“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," Trump replied, pointing to mothers of victims who were in attendance. "What do you think, do you think I'm creating something?"

"Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons," Trump added. 

"This is real," one mother could be heard saying. 

"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."
