Donald Trump Jr. put CNN’s Jim Acosta in his place on Thursday in response to the White House correspondent taking a swipe at him on social media after being roundly mocked over videos he posted on his Twitter account.

Acosta visited the border in McAllen, Texas, ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit, and decided to try to prove that the president was wrong about the border. The result was Acosta unintentionally demonstrating that border walls made the area safer.

“I found some steel slats down on the border,” Acosta tweeted. “But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today.”

“Of course you don’t Jim,” Trump Jr. responded. “That’s because walls work. Thanks for your help proving @realDonaldTrump’s point and simultaneously creating one of the best self-own videos ever!!!”

“It’s a little strange Don,” Acosta replied. “You guys seem to be saying the current measures in place are working. Does that mean your dad should reopen the government and get federal employees back to work? #byebye”

“I know this might be hard for you to comprehend Jimbo, but the reason why all of Twitter has been mocking you today is because you were at a part of the border WITH A WALL,” Trump Jr. fired back. “So yes, of course it was working. Replicate that across the border & we’ll all be safer. #RealNews #ByeBye”

Here are some notable responses to Acosta’s videos that show walls work:

      Not intentionally, some work really hard at getting it wrong, like fake new and Democrats. But look at the bright side, they are cutting their own throats. It’s the one thing we can count on! They are actually showing their butts to the world for all to see. That’s how stupid they are!

    Don’t exactly know why, but Ocosta makes me think of an angry spoiled brat who breaks all of his own toys when he doesn’t get his way. He always looks so mad – it has to be painful to have so much anger all the time.

      Jim is not a real reporter but he did stay at the Holiday Inn.

    Just when you think he may not be so stupid, he goes and starts talking to prove that he is.

    Why not go out in the middle of no where, in the desert, where there are no walls, and no cameras, no president, and no border patrol around. And miles of open border in both directions. Then come back and report what you find. While you are waiting, go out on the trails and camping spots and pick up some trash while you are at it Jimmy Boy. Where the illegals crossing have ruined parts of our beautiful desert, with mountains of trash and garbage. Places where people use to be about to hike and enjoy. And now is too nasty and too dangerous to get anywhere close to.
