How do you clone using your CI token?

I am not able to clone using my CI token. The command I used is:

git clone

I got the CI token in CI/CD Settings > Runner token. The output is:

Cloning into 'PROJECT'...
remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

I’m trying to troubleshoot a different problem, but first I have to figure this out. This occurs regardless of project. Do I need to do something before cloning using my CI token?
