Trump put this CNN reporter in her place when she asked about the wall

Jim Acosta is CNN’s favorite anti-Trump attack dog disguised as a White House reporter.

But he got shut down after an altercation with White House staff.

Now, CNN has a new White House reporter and Trump just put her in her place.

CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins thought she had President Trump in a corner.

She asked a long-winded question about the wall, saying that Trump is failing to make good on his campaign promises.

Trump explained to her that he is not caving in to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats on border wall funding.

Collins tried to yell out a rebuttal, but a White House aide took her microphone away.

Breitbart reports:

CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins and President Trump went back and forth over funding for the border wall during a press conference in the Rose Garden Friday, with Collins continuing to question Trump after an aide retrieved the microphone from her.

“You ran your campaign promising supporters that Mexico is going to pay for the wall, and that the wall was going to be made of concrete,” Kaitlan Collins said.

“You just said earlier that the wall could be made of steel and right now our government is shut down over a demand from your administration that the American taxpayer pay for the wall. So how can you say you’re not failing on that promise to your supporters?”

“Very nice question, so beautifully asked, even though I just answered it,” Trump responded.

“You didn’t answer it! The USMCA has not even passed Congress yet, sir,” the CNN reporter replied.

Trump continued, “Excuse me, are you ready? I just told you that we just made a trade deal, and we will take in billions and billions of dollars, far more than the cost of the wall, the wall is peanuts compared to what the value of this trade deal is to the United States. As far as concrete, I said I was going to build a wall. I never said I’m going to build a concrete…”

“You’ve said concrete,” Collins interrupted.

“Just so you don’t–because I know you’re not into the construction business, you don’t understand something. We now have a great steel business that’s rebuilt in the United States. Steel is stronger than concrete,” Trump said.

The president then continued to explain his vision for the future border wall. Collins eventually shouted another question.

As Renewed Right reported, President Trump told Chuck Schumer he’s willing to keep the government shut down for years.

President Trump’s core campaign promise was to build a wall on the Southern Border and get control of the immigration crisis.

He knows he must deliver for his supporters.

Now it just comes down to who will blink first – President Trump or Nancy Pelosi.

    Congress & the House both should put d.trump in his place, a Padded Cell in The Nearest Maxium Security Hospital For The Crimmally Insane before that Sick Minded republican Retard & his entire bunch of Asshole Kissing republican Retards does any more damage to this country

  4. John says:

    The DemoCommunist don’t want the wall because it will shut off the inflow of Illegal Immigrants that vote illegally around the Country in every Democrat Run State and major Population Centers. They the DemoCommunist build walls around the Estates, and live in Walled Gated Communities but walls are effective then I challenge every DemoCommunist tear down your walls speaking that walls aren’t effective means nothing when you Hypocrites live in Walled Estates, in Walled and Gated and armed Communities. A wall will reduce the influx drastically of Illegal Immigrants. I am sick of these Elitist Hypocrites and their Damnable lies! Build the wall declare the Illegal Immigrant flow a National Security Matter then impeach Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and every other DemoCommunist and R. I. N. O. and secure oud borders take the money out of the Foriegn Aid Monies heading to Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, close the conduits of Illegal Heroin, Cocaine, Tar Build the wall and place the House of Representatives , and Senators on The Affordible care act and take their expensive health care plans away and used that money to help build the Wall

  5. Jay says:

    I have never seen such disrespectful treatment of a potus as with President trump. He is getting us out of the holes that Obama built and they try to say he is breaking campaign promises? Why didn’t they do that with Obama who actually committed treason many times while in office? The truth is the US is doing better than we have in decades and they Media wants to find scandals that don’t exist. Shameful is the nicest word to describe this behavior and wildly inaccurate with the facts.

    • Rose says:

      You are so very right Jay, they treat the President terrible and complain endlessly. We should demand that the Democrat Party be outlawed, because they are so crooked! Things need to start changing or this country is finished. President Trump needs to start putting them in prison for the things they have done…..starting with the Obamas!!

    Centralized NAZI News!Communist NWK News.AKA: Fake News! MSM=Fake News, Fox News.The Pravda Racists Divisive Commie newspapers and their propaganda HATE machine at full throttle! They are destroying the country within! We have to stop them first, patriots!

  7. Estell says:

    As long as it keeps the illegals and drug lords out who really cares what it’s made of? Build the wall. We are still behind you.

    • Texas Belle says:

      Let’s call it a barrier and see if the Democrats will accept that since they are so paranoid about the word “wall”. The steel spikes look good to me.

  8. Charles says:

    Funny thing is that the democRATs had no reservation about 25 billion for the wall just last year if our President allowed DACA to remain. Trump just wanted to do things legal and have congress put it into a bill where he would sign it into law. Why would they not want to introduce a bill???

  9. John says:

    I just received an email where Ted Cruz and Chuck Norris have come up with a solution where they propose to use funds from convicted Drug Lord from Mexico to pay $14 Billion from drug money assets to build the Wall between US and Mexico border and also fund Border Patrol with updated technology? So if that is true why all of this Political Posturing. Trump gets his wall which we all know is needed, Democrats can go back to sleep or in the swamp where they belong and Govt. workers can get paid like they should, It may not be that easy but it’s better than listening to all of the political BS and fake news from CNN and others. Trump is doing a great job so let’s work on that solution so he cam go to work on other important things. The Democrats (Demon Rats) are just sore losers and want to divide our country using these political games and do not give a damn about anyone but their own personal agendas or my books profit. You do not see them going home without a paycheck? Also as many have stated, most of the higher politicians are Millionaires and that is really why most of them went into politics in the first place e.g. Clintons, Obama, Soros, Pelosi, Schumer, etc. Also note they also wanted multiple times before Trump came into office to build a wall or improve border protection. Wake up Americans and I am talking about citizens and legal immigrants that want to protect your families from illegal immigrants, terrorists and criminals. That is also why the Liberal Democrats mentioned above have security walls around their expensive homes? Duh they even no what’s right for their families protection but want to talk about or back open borders? I think that God and his son are probably looking down and thinking what did I miss when a created man & women and gave them a brain. If we keep going the way we are today, we may not have to worry about impeaching a good President but will surely be answering for our sins.

    Donald Trump is our current President and what the Democrats and Fake News are doing to try and undermine or stop him is not only a sin but in my books traitors to the USA. The Clintons, Soros, Comey, Muellerand the other corrupt FBI/DOJ personnel need to spend some time in prison. It’s really shocking to me and should be to other Americans how these classified emails, phone tests and other evidence just gets swept under the rug or accidently gets erased. What a bunch of corrupt politicians and for some reason, we cannot indict and prosecute them for crimes committed.

    What a sad day for true Americans and my statement is Mr. Trump please keep draining the swamp and everyone vote for his re-election in 2020. The Democrats and his adversaries are trying every trick in the book to keep him from doing what he said or better promised to do. MAGA.

    Gold bless the real Americans and our POTUS.

    • Pat says:

      Dems are scared to death that President Trump will win re-election. They are working overtime to thwart his every move, destroy him and allow millions more illegals into the country because they need their votes if they have any hope of winning. I think we should round up all the Democrats in Congress and lock them up with MS-13 gang members for six months. If they survive, you can be assured they’d come out of there demanding that a wall be built immediately. I doubt that any one of them would finf that “spark of divinity” that Nancy says they have.

    • Texas Belle says:

      Amen to that.

  10. Mike says:

    CNN is never on at my house and will not be until they become a legitimate news organization again.
    the folks that voted for Democrat Reps this last election should be ashamed. What a mess they created

    • Joan says:

      They will never be on. Neither our house or many others. Not sure Dems feel shame no matter how messy it gets.

    • MARK says:

      CNN ( THE CLINTON NEWS NETWORK) AND CBS (THE CLINTON BROADCASING SYSTEM) BOTH NEED TO BE BANNED FROM THE WHITE HOUSE PERMANTLY FOR THEY ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF LIARS THAT HAVE THE DEMOCRAPS BELIEVING IN WHAT THEY SAY AND THE WAY THEY ACT TOWARDS OUR GREATEST PRESIDENT TRUMP

    • Jacque says:

      Mike it’s called ignorance. They are blinded by freebies. Obama phones..etc…obamanation care..aka Obama taxes. President Trump has far
      exceeded Obama the hatemonger. So just consider the mentality of the voters.

  11. Go get your own land and start you a country. If you want to be somewhere be there not here. And for all of you imposers on and in our country we do not want your lazy ,freebie ,wont work , welfare, foodstamp, house snatching, medical getters, gas guzzling, illegal you and your sorry friends, stealing, drug ups, booze down, destroy, nasty, diseased selves here. A TRUE AMERICAN who LOVES THIS COUNTRY FEELS THIS WAY. DO NOT IMPOSE ON US. WE can make it just fine without you and your kind. Leave so we can lock the doors. Do you understand and do all of you get it?

  14. Allie Taggert says:

    We have the money, it just needs to be re-allocated. End ALL subsidies to South American nations, use the funds the build the wall. End ALL benefits to illegal residents- no healthcare, no food, housing, or education. Get the illegals out of our communities, schools, and jobs. America is for Americans FIRST.

    • Sandra Lee Smith says:

      Better yet, end all subsidies to nay-voters in Congress over the past 30 years ’til the wall is built and running; then we can talk about reinstating their subsidies and no back pay!

  15. Adrienne says:

    54 Billion for foreign aid and $1 for the boarder wall

    • mrp says:

      Apple didn’t fall far from the tree with Nancy. Her father was mayor of Baltimore and aspired to become governor of Maryland, but because of his corruption had to back out. Nancy certainly followed in his footsteps and did nothing but enrich herself and her family just like Maxine Waters during all her years in Congress. She’s why we need term limits.

  18. ROMEO says:

    You are all right especially Richard Democrats pretending they are for the poor people to convert these illegals to vote for them BUT, they should protect first to all Military men and women/police men/women who are protecting all the American citizens in this “MAGA”

  19. Betty says:

    Build The Wall.!!! This climate that the Scumbag Democrats have brought to America is a NoWinner for America. All the Back Alley Behavior by the newly elected persons should be removed from Congress–Sent Packing…

  21. Bob Burton says:

    Why not use all of the money being sent to these foreign countries who don’t lie or appreciate the aid this country gives away to them.
    Now you can hear the complaints from all of the free loaders in this country who are worried they might have to start working to survive.

  22. mark says:

    MS Collins Nose is BENT out of shape!

  23. Craig Michael Vandertie says:

    Just who are these miscreant Mexicans who can afford to purchase enough “Made In America” products?, those people are stupid and make pennies compared to United States citizens, when will our politicians learn you can not trade with nations whose economy is so far below ours it is unfair to the Common Good of this nation, alas most likely never.

    A travel ban should be put on Mexico, Mexico’s entire tourist trade is/was funded from laundered money, no trade deal, secure our border, enact and enforce a travel ban until the Cartels pay for the walls, personally only a fool will believe a fence since it certainly no longer is a wall will keep out the cartel or hinder any illicit activity of theirs, we need and army of troops stationed along the border, and no the Possee Comitatus act does not apply since the foreign invaders are our enemies.

    • Jon Bon says:

      President TRUMP should charge WH Reporters who ask dumb-stupid questions, like CNN WH reporter Kaitlyn Collins. Collins asked a question of TRUMP, and didn’t listen to the answer, and then she was ready for another question, again not bothering to hear and listen. CNN’s creditability is damaged when the likes of Collins is one of their major source of reporting. Chris Cuomo and Jake Tapper 2 decent CNN reporters suffer when CNN deliver dummies such as Collins, Lemon, Blitzer, and Baldwin, who can’t report the news BUT FAKE it..

  24. tom matthews says:

    DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND BUILD THE WALL. We the people will take on congress (both parties.) We can use recalls & elections as JUST ONE WAY TO CONTROL THESE ELECTED PEOPLE…

  25. The Real M says:

    We have a national security emergency crisis at our southern border! Stand firm President Trump, we must have a Barrier, use Technology, and the Border Patrol if we are to gain control of this terrible situation. Don’t fail us for the sake of our country and future generations! Promises made…Promises k—, hold the line Mr. President!

    #WalkAway to the Republican Party, we want and need you to SAVE OUR COUNTRY!

  26. Linda says:

    Build the wall and send all the illegals to Nancy and Chuck house
    They want to take care of them
    Free food, free education , free healthcare, welfare, and don’t forget the Medicare for all
    God help our country !

    • Lunchladie says:

      I say if walls are important all the politicians need to tear down the walls around their mansions. As for the president wants the wall for the safety and security of our country and the American citizens. He himself is well protected. And I say all the politicians need to take a field trip to the southern border – see for themselves since Pelosi and Schumer don’t believe the report from Homeland Security and couldn’t even give the common courtesy to listen without interruption to the report.

    • Jerry Hampton says:

      I don’t care what they build the wall of, just build it! Right now it is less effective than a 6 lane freeway. Trump is trying to do what he promised and the Democrats are trying to stop him from doing anything – and the Republicans are doing their best to do nothing at all. What a shame!

      • Michel W Smith says:

        Betty, ever been to El Paso, TX? It’s a cesspool with illegals coming over our borders daily. They get free college tuition, free healthcare, and food stamps. I think they even get unemployment benefits! They drive drunk often, with no insurance, and if caught are only dropped off at the border where they come back over after a few days. How do I know all this? I’m retired Army and was stationed there for the last 3 years before I retired. A month before I retired a drunk undocumented Mexican lady crashed into the back of my truck, and I woke up to police officers knocking at my door at around 2 AM. She had been caught because she wedged her roommates Chevy Cavalier under my left rear quarter panel and was too drunk to get out and walk away. She had already ran into two other cars up and around my block before she hit mine. My insurance covered the damage, but when I asked the police what could be done they told me she couldn’t be sued because she wasn’t American and that she had already been released back across the border! This all because we can’t control who comes across our borders as they stand. It’s gotta be fixed, if not for stupid crap happening, because these are poised to be the next wave of Democratic voters in our country, even though they shouldn’t have that right!

    • Rick says:

      I LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK…

  27. Allen says:

    I heard this press conference, and to me, President Trump was masterful. I am not sure what the final design of a border wall will look like. But, can someone, anyone, explain to me why this idiot of a “reporter” was so bent on whether it is steel or concrete. To me, steel is better. To me, it is harder to climb. I have attempted steel before and concrete before. Neither were easy, but concrete gives more traction. I am confused. Whatever it is built of, build it. $5.6 billion dollars in $4 trillion is a rounding error. Democrats suck.

    • Lunchladie says:

      Yes democrats do suck and they DO NOT work for the American people. They have their own agendas and it DOES NOT have anything to do with the good of America.

      • Betty says:

        d. trump AKA CRAZY donald & D for DUMB trump also has his own Agenda Of Getting His Own Childish, Selfish, Stupid, Sick Minded Way Like The Arrogant, Narassistic, Conceited Spoiled Brat He has proven himself to be over & over again with not one thought or one concern for the American peop,e.

  28. FACTS: Collin’s is a liberal Idiot! Paid to confront and feed BS! GO AWAY!

    Everyone in here has commented everything correctly! Mexico WILL pay in one way or another!

    GO PRESIDENT TRUMP, stand strong against these greedy DEMS, all they want is control of us and our money!

    DRAIN the SWAMP BUILD the WALL MAGA!!!!

  29. LES says:

    Note to CNN: Every time you put your foot out there to trip POTUS TRUMP, he is going to
    stomp on that foot! How many of these reporters who are so sympathetic to the caravans of those willing to invade our country have they personally taken under their wings by taking
    financial responsibility themselves??? NONE!!! All lip service to make headlines!!!

  30. Tony says:

    I’m all for a border wall, barrier, fence whatever you want to call it. But there are many more important steps to take in stopping illegal immigration and refugees.
    Congress must amend all laws that allow illegal immigrant children in our schools.
    Any and all government benefits that illegals currently obtain must come to a halt.
    Birthright citizenships must halt immediately. The 13th amendment doesn’t give illegals this right. The leftists have interpreted it to their benefit. Amend the wording so that even the libtards can understand it.
    Amend all refugee laws. If we must detain people for months so be it. No more catch and release.
    Require all businesses to use e-verify.
    Ban sanctuary policies of states, counties and cities

    • Lunchladie says:

      YES YES and YES I agree to all of that. So instead of Congress bickering about the damn wall they should get busy to reform some of our immigration laws And I read earlier that many DACA “children” now have children of their own. So now their anchor babies allow them to stay. This is such a crock of BS. So tired of it all.

    • gunsmoke says:

      Birthright citizenship was meant to say: Any offspring born to a U.S. Citizen in any U.S. state or U.S. Territory, will automatically be considered a U.S. Citizen. (This avoids going through the citizenship process). That’s it!!

    NEITHER SHUMER OR PELOSI ” LOVE THE U.S.A. “

  32. Bob Fox says:

    If the US can seize enough assets of El Chapo that will pay for the wall, what are we waiting for? El Chapo is Mexican…therefore a Mexican just paid for the wall. We just killed two birds with one stone.

    • Lunchladie says:

      I agree Bob Fox. I have been saying that for months. The government has seized more thatn enough money from El Chapo to build the wall. I say LET’S DO IT!!. El Chapo has cost the US enough in all of his drug dealings.

    • mrp says:

      Absolutely. by hook or by crook Mexico will pay for the wall. So to all those who are salivating that Mexico did not submit a check, we Trump supporters will get the last laugh when Mexican does pay for the wall. Congress be damned because they are worthless. they fear our president because they fear the exposure of all their corruption.

  33. JAKE QUIMPO says:

    Invading this country by the thousands without proper papers, the best solution Land Mine” the Borders just like the divided Berlin in Germany during the ’40s and ’50s.

NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS COUNTRY, SOMEBODY IS PAYING FOR IT. ME AND THE PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD FOR THEIR MONEY.

    • Lunchladie says:

      Yep. We are paying out billions every year in benefits to the illegal aliens that are here in our country. Stop paying out benefits and see how fast illegals leave. And in no time you would recoup what would be spent on the wall.

  34. Richard Nielsen says:

    Unlike Obama and his unconstitutional reprieve for students, Trump will work within our laws. Then a court ruling will not stop production of said wall
