CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota chokes up talking about a solider that recently died in the Bronx fires who immigrated from Ghana in a discussion about President Trump's most recent comments about immigrants.

"I don't know why this one makes me so emotional, but it does," Camerota said.

Kristol's tweet asserted that Mensah was from a country Trump "apparently thinks produces very subpar immigrants."

"I don't know why the President doesn't know that," Camerota concluded after reading the tweet and grabbing a tissue.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that he did use tough language, but not the language that was reported.
