This week, Donald Trump appeared on CNN for a town hall. Supporters were stunned to see Trump appear on a network he once called “very fake news.” But with so much on the line in 2024, Trump bit the bullet and appeared on the left-leaning network.
It was clear from the start that the host, Kaitlin Collins, was out for Trump. She threw numerous accusations at Trump, parroting the usual Democrat Party talking points.
From Daily Wire:
Trump repeatedly sparred with CNN host Kaitlin Collins throughout the event on a wide range of subjects, including his stolen election claims, the January 6 riot, a civil court ruling that he battered and defamed author E. Jean Carroll, the economy, energy independence, the debt ceiling, the Second Amendment, the border, abortion, the war in Ukraine, and more.
But try as she might, Collins could not stump the former president. At one point, she tried to accuse him of being responsible for the events of January 6, 2021. That’s when Trump pulled something out of his coat.
Trump just pulls out receipts to disprove Kaitlin Collins’ claims on the CNN town hall… and the crowd cheers! This is NOT going the way CNN wanted it to.

Trump produced printed copies of his tweets from January 6, proving he was not encouraging anyone to break the law. In fact, quite the opposite it appears. Trump even managed to win over the audience, wowing them with this move.
Soon, Collins’ lost control of the event, as Trump dominated. He scored big points when discussing the economy and Biden’s epic failures. He vowed to restore America’s energy independence, something Biden has sought to shut down.

From all appearances, Democrats are outraged by Trump’s performance. I guess the old adage is still true, don’t mess with Trump.
- Trump scored big wins during his CNN town hall.
- He defied the host’s accusations by producing a printout of his own tweets.
- Democrats have expressed anger that the event went so well for Trump.
