CNN’s Jim Sciutto was one of the many journalists this week who attacked President Trump’s comments about border security during his meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday. Sciutto even did a whole segment “fact-checking” the president on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom. Unfortunately for him, actual experts from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) called out his reporting on Twitter with a brutal comeback….
Pres. Trump said yesterday "10 terrorists" have been caught at the border. @jimsciutto's fact check: “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short period of time as the president claimed” https://t.co/a1nCtEFR3s pic.twitter.com/O0Jh9JVDld

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
