President Donald Trump again lashed CNN correspondent Jim Acosta during a roundtable at the White House on Friday, mockingly thanking the reporter for his “sales pitch” for the president’s border wall. Trump and some other Republicans mocked the report, pointing out that Acosta was walking along a border fence during his report. I appreciate your sales pitch,” Trump said Friday in a jab at Acosta. When Acosta answered: “I didn’t see an invasion at the border,” Trump shot back: “Oh, you didn’t? That’s because we had a wall.” While there are about 650 miles of barriers along the southern border, construction of Trump’s border wall has not begun.
