Chalk up another victory for President Trump over Jim Acosta. The fake news reporter accused President Trump of “concocting a national emergency” so he could build the wall.
Talk about bad timing for Jim. There happened to be some Angel Moms (women who have had their children murdered by illegal alients) in the crowd. President Trump turned to the Angel Moms and let them respond to Acosta.

“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?” Jim Acosta asked President Trump.
This was when President Trump turned up the heat.
“I’ll ask the angel moms — what do you think, do you think I’m creating something?” President Trump added. “Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons.”
One of the Angel Moms could be heard saying, “This is real.”

President Trump blasted Acosta again by calling out CNN for their agenda and their fake news.
“Your question is a very political question, because you have an agenda,” Trump said. “You’re CNN, you’re fake news. You have an agenda.”
After the press conference the Angel Moms surrounded Jim Acosta and confronted him about his remarks to President Trump.
