Good ol’ CNN. They just keep on coming back for more and more humiliation. God love ’em.
This time it was Jim Sciutto who made a fool of himself, claiming Trump using threats of terrorism to justify the border wall was not supported facts supplied by the Department of Homeland Security.
The president has now twice used the threat of terrorism to justify the wall. Facts supplied by DHS don’t back that up. https://t.co/N3XDabBPRO

There was just one problem with Sciutto’s claim here …
Apparently, he never bothered to reach out to DHS to get the facts he so blatantly claimed didn’t back the president. Luckily, DHS spokesperson Tyler Houlton was more than happy to provide the information to Sciutto.
We are happy to provide the facts — but you never reached out. In fact, DHS prevented 3,755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling to or entering the U.S. in FY 17. That's in addition to 17,526 criminals, 1,019 gang members, and 3,028 special interest aliens. #FactsFirst https://t.co/4naI8XOg9x
