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.
