Despite its turbulent relationship with President Trump, cable news giant CNN heaped praise on the Commander-in-Chief after he launched his bipartisan effort to reform the nation’s outdated immigration system; saying he “deserves a lot of credit” for allowing cameras into the tense negotiations.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer was speaking with senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta when the two weighed-in on Trump’s historic decision to broadcast his round-table discussion on DACA, the border wall, and other highly-contested issues as Congress prepares to tackle immigration reform.
“I’ve got to give the President of the United States a lot of credit. He allowed the TV cameras in there for this really remarkable meeting. I’ve covered the White House as you have for many years, I don’t remember when a White House has allowed TV cameras in such an unusual meeting.”
Blitzer’s comments regarding Trump comes just days after White House advisor Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jake Tapper engaged in a fiery exchange; with Miller slamming the network after the anchor questioned the President’s mental health and fitness for office.
Tapper eventually cut off the Trump advisor’s microphone, telling him that he’d “wasted” enough of his viewers time.
CNN DENIED: President Trump Deploys GIANT TRUCK to Cut-Off CNN Crew
A mysterious white truck appeared out of nowhere and effectively blocked CNN reporters from filming President Trump while golfing during his holiday visit to Mar-a-Lago on Thursday; cutting-off the camera crew from hounding the Commander-in-Chief while relaxing on the links.
CNN’s Don Lemon commented on the truck’s surprise appearance while speaking with the network’s White House correspondent, asking the reporter to explain the mysterious incident.
“Our job down here is to cover the President and to tell our viewers what he’s doing on a daily basis […] There’s a break in the hedges,” said the journalist.
“Today, a big white box truck parked in front of the hedges trying to obscure our shot of President Trump golfing,” he added. “This may seem trivial, but it’s important to get video of the President as he does things on a daily basis.”
