UPDATE: Despite the mockery, Acosta is doubling down on his narrative and sharing short clips of local McAllen residents who say their community is completely safe. Again, proving Trump's point?

ORIGINAL POST

CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who President Trump, and his associates often spar with, shared a video from the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday as he awaits Trump's arrival. As he walked along a part of the border with a steel barrier, Acosta tried to upend Trump's narrative that there's a "crisis" at the border. To the contrary, Acosta observed, there didn't appear to be any emergency and it was in fact, quite "tranquil." Watch his brief tour below.

Well, it didn't take long for social media to respond. As many noted, Acosta just pretty much just proved the president's point.

Nice work, Jim. This unfortunate "self-own" comes just a couple days after he was put in his place by White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Trump is visiting the border Thursday to meet with officials about the illegal immigration crisis. He continues to spar with Democrats over the necessity of a border wall as we mark the 20th day of the government shutdown.
