On Friday night, President Donald Trump tweeted about a news story involving CNN and the proposed border wall.

According to reports, CNN contacted the KUSI Newsroom in San Diego, asking for a local reporters point of view regarding the border wall debate. A reporter named Dan Plante, who had experience reporting on the border, was offered, but afer the station informed CNN that Border Patrol Agents believe physical barriers work and help “prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States,” CNN declined the report.

CNN responded to repots about the incident from KUSI, tweeting: We called several local stations to book someone for a show. We didn’t end up booking any of them. That happens many times every single day. We did, however, book a reporter from KUSI for a story on immigration and the border wall in November. This is a non story. #factsfirst🍎

Trump weighed in on the report, tweeting: [email protected] called a San Diego news station (@KUSINews) for negative reports on the Wall. When the station said that Walls work, CNN no longer had interest. #FakeNews
