McAllen,TX-CNN reporter Jim Acosta who has been a sharp critic of all things President Trump has found common ground with the President. On Thursday, he reported from the border wall along the Mexico border in a town called McAllen, Texas.
There, Acosta noted that the wall, a steel wall with slats was working to keep the town of McAllen safe.
“As we walk along here, we’re not seeing any signs of imminent danger,” Acosta said, vouching for the wall. “There aren’t any migrants trying to rush toward this fence.”
“It’s pretty tranquil down here,” Acosta said of the community protected by 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. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu
