CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Out Trump For Spreading Misinformation on Immigration: ‘A Wall of Lies’


CNN’s Jake Tapper previewed President Donald Trump‘s Oval Office address tonight by looking at his “wall of lies” on immigration.

He said Trump will not only need to convince the American people and many Republicans, but that POTUS also needs to deal with his own credibility crisis.

“Polls suggest roughly 60 percent of the public considers the President to be dishonest and untrustworthy,” Tapper said. “And there may be no issue where the President and his administration have been more misleading than on the subject of immigration.”

He brought up “highly misleading” stats from Vice President Mike Pence about suspected terrorists and the President’s own falsehoods from what the wall will be made of to his debunked claim about his conversations with former presidents.

“Trump’s own senior administration officials privately acknowledge that the continued spreading of falsehoods about this issue has created a real problem as the president takes to the mound and prepares to make his pitch,” Tapper concluded. “It’s almost as if the public can’t even hear what the President has to say because around the issue of border security there has been built a wall. A wall of misinformation. A wall of lies.”
