Jim Acosta, Chief White House Correspondent for CNN, was trying to slander Trump but quickly found that video evidence proved he was lying, as people took to Twitter to call him out for his lie.
The lie was blatant as Trump was clear about his intentions. He explained that the legitimate asylum seekers would get in faster while those trying to enter without a need for asylum would be turned away more promptly. So basically Trump is just talking about speeding up the process sounds like a win for everyone. But for some reason CNN’s Acosta tried to demonize the president on Twitter.
“Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: “These are frivolous claims.”
Trump’s original statement that was clearly not accusing asylum seekers of “misleading authorities.”
“We must also restore the integrity of our broken asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims. These are frivolous claims to gain admission into our country. Asylum abuse also strains our public school systems, our hospitals, and local shelters, using funds that we should, and that have to go to elderly veterans, at risk youth, Americans in poverty, and those in genuine need of protection.
We’re using the funds that should be going to them. And that shouldn’t happen. And it’s not going to happen in a very short period of time. I have to get this approved. My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum seekers by screening out the meritless claims. If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t, you will promptly be returned home.”

You know there's video proving you're lying, right?

This is why we need to watch these Dems they are going out of their way to attack Trump because they know their audience is not even going to check. They that their audience just wants more reasons to hate the president or think he is somehow illegitimate. But I’m sure the MSM will take Trump’s useful bill and find a new way to slander it since that is what the Left wants to hear.
