10/29/18: White House Press Briefing

10/29/18: White House Press Briefing

Ms. Sanders: Good afternoon. I want to begin today
with a few words about the heinous killing
of 11 Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life synagogue
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday. As you know,
the shooter is in custody, and the FBI is on the scene
leading the investigation with the support of state
and local law enforcement. This atrocity was a chilling
act of mass murder. It was an act of hatred. And above all,
it was an act of evil. Anti-Semitism is a plague
to humanity, and it is responsible
for many of the worst horrors in human history. We all have a duty to confront
anti-Semitism in all its forms, and everywhere
and anywhere it appears. The American people
reject hatred, bigotry, prejudice,
and violence. We are a nation that believes
in religious liberty, tolerance, and respect. And we are a people who cherish
the dignity of every human life. Today, America grieves
for the precious lives that were cruelly stolen. Our hearts ache for every person
who lost a loved one. The 11 Jewish Americans
who were horribly murdered represented the very best
of our nation. They were brothers and sisters
who looked out for each other. They were doctors who cared
for citizens in need. They were proud grandparents
who taught their grandchildren to value faith,
family, and country. And they were
the religious heart of the Tree of Life community. Our nation mourns the loss of
these extraordinary Americans, and we also pray
for those who were wounded. Our hearts are with
the four brave police officers who were shot and injured
while trying to stop the attack. We thank God for these officers and for every member
of law enforcement who responded swiftly
and bravely. In the wake of the attack,
we have witnessed Americans of every faith and tradition
coming together to mourn with their fellow citizens
to support one another and to stand in solidarity
with America’s Jewish community. The President cherishes the
American Jewish community for everything it stands for
and contributes to our country. He adores Jewish Americans
as part of his own family. The President is the grandfather
of several Jewish grandchildren. His daughter
is a Jewish American, and his son-in-law is a descendent
of Holocaust survivors. Tomorrow, the President
and First Lady will travel to Pennsylvania to express the support
of the American people and grieve
with the Pittsburgh community. And with that,
I will take your questions. Jon. The Press: Sarah, the President
said over the weekend that he could tone up
his rhetoric. What does he mean by that? And does he have any concern
at all that his words could inspire or provoke troubled people
to do awful things? Ms. Sanders: Certainly
the President wants, in moments where our country
is hurting, like we’ve seen
in the last several days, to find ways to bring
our country together. And we’ve seen him
do exactly that. However, the President is going
to continue to draw contrast — particularly as we go into
the final days of an election — the differences
between the two parties, particularly on
policy differences. You’ll continue to see him
make that contrast. But he has certainly, I think, found those moments
to bring our country together and certainly focus on some of
the things that all of us can support and all of us
can condemn as well. The Press: But he’s also
harshly attacked some of the very people
that received those pipe bombs, and this morning suggesting that
the news media is responsible for the anger in the country. How does he do that when,
in the case of the pipe bomber, this was somebody
who went to Trump rallies, this is somebody who had a van
covered with attacks on the media
and praise for the President? The shooter in Pittsburgh
is somebody who was provoked, it seems, by the caravan
the President has spent so much time talking about.
Why is he out there — when you say he’s trying
to unite the country, why is he out there
making these attacks? Ms. Sanders: Jonathan,
the very first thing that the President did
was condemn the attacks, both in Pittsburgh
and in the pipe bombs. The very first thing the media
did was blame the President and make him responsible
for these ridiculous acts. That is outrageous that that
would be the very first reaction of so many people
across this country. The Press: I’m not blaming
the President. Ms. Sanders: I’m not finished.
The only person responsible for carrying out
either of these heinous acts were the individuals
who carried them out. It’s not the President
no more than it was Bernie Sanders’s fault
for the individual who shot up a baseball field
of congressional Republicans. You can’t start putting the
responsibility of individuals on anybody but the individual
who carries out the crime. The Press: But why is
the President suggesting it’s the news media? The President is the one
placing blame here. Ms. Sanders: No, the President
is not placing blame. The Press: It’s what
he did this morning. Ms. Sanders: The President is
not responsible for these acts. Again, the very first action
that the President did was condemn these heinous acts.
The very first thing that the media
did was condemn the President, and go after and try to place
blame not just on the President, but everybody that works
in this administration. The major news networks’
first public statement was to blame the President
and myself included. I mean, that is outrageous
than anybody other than the individual who carried out the crime
would hold that responsibility. Steve. The Press: Sarah,
what’s it going to take to stop these killings from happening over
and over and over again? Ms. Sanders: You know, I think
if we had a good answer to that, I think everybody in the country
would support it. If anybody knows the answer,
I think certainly this administration
would be all ears. The President spends
every single minute of every single day
looking for the best ways to protect the safety
and security of Americans, and we’re going to continue
to do that. John. The Press: Can I add
just a second thing? Is the President going to give a
speech on immigration this week? And what’s your thinking
about options in terms of closing the border? Ms. Sanders: We’ll keep you
posted if there’s
any scheduling announcement on an address on that topic. I’m not aware of that
at this point in time. The Press: Eleven Jewish
leaders in the Pittsburgh area have said that the President’s
visit is not welcome unless and until he denounces fully and
forthrightly white nationalism. Does the White House believe
this President has done enough to denounce white nationalism? Ms. Sanders: The President has
denounced racism, hatred, and bigotry in all forms,
on a number of occasions. We’ll continue to do that.
I’m doing it here today. And I would also say,
at the same time, that some individuals — they’re grieving,
they’re hurting. The President wants to be there
to show the support of this administration
for the Jewish community. The rabbi said that
he is welcome as well. And certainly, we want to show our support
for those individuals. The Press: If I could just
follow that up. I know that there is
another meeting this morning about what to do
about the border. You’re thinking about
an executive action, maybe some sort of
regulatory action. Is one of the options being
discussed making it impossible for anybody to claim asylum unless they enter
through a port of entry? So that would mean that anybody
who crosses the border illegally would not be able
to make a valid claim of asylum? Ms. Sanders: There are a lot
of options that are being
discussed right now. The number-one priority
is looking for ways to secure our borders. We’d love for Democrats
in Congress to actually help step up
and do their job, and help us do that. If they don’t,
and they’re unwilling to do — as they’ve shown in the past
that they are — then we’re looking at
administrative actions that will help
and allow us to do so. Raquel. The Press: Sarah, thank you
very much. About the Brazilian election — the State Department
repeated today that a commitment to promote
human rights and democracy will continue to guide
the relationship with Brazil. However, the Brazilian
President-elect, Bolsonaro, has made very controversial
comments about minorities. The opposition defended the
military declaration in Brazil. My question is if the White
House plans to address this and ask assurances
from the government — the incoming government
in Brazil — that they will protect human
rights and democracy in Brazil. And another question: What do
you think about these comparisons
that a lot of people say that — Ms. Sanders: Let me address
the first thing. The Press: Sure. Ms. Sanders: First, we promote
human rights all over the world. We value our longstanding
relationship with Brazil, and we want to continue
to be able to work with them, and we’ll see
what happens from there. And your second question? The Press: Okay, so what do you
think about these comparisons? A lot of people
are calling Bolsonaro the “Trump of the Tropics.”
And if President Trump plans to invite Bolsonaro
to the White House, or if he has any plans
to go to Brazil anytime soon, maybe attend
Bolsonaro’s inauguration? Ms. Sanders: There’s only one
Donald Trump, in my opinion. Steven, go ahead. The Press: I’d like to
follow up on Jon’s question about the caravan. The President has used
the word “invasion” to describe this caravan. That’s the same word that
is mentioned in the Constitution three times — “invasion”
— with respect to the powers of the federal government
to repel invasions. So my question is, have there
been any discussions here with respect to that
about the fact that the Constitution provides
for, for example, the suspension of habeas corpus
to repel an invasion if the public safety
requires it? Is the President
talking about potentially ignoring posse comitatus by having the military go down?
There’s a provision in the law that allows for
a constitutional exemption. Is that in any way
under consideration? Ms. Sanders: We’re looking at
a number of different options. I know that the Department
of Defense is holding a press conference
this afternoon at 4 o’clock to talk about some of the
actions that they’ll be taking. I would encourage you
to tune into that. The Press: That’s not a “no”
to my question. It has not been ruled out?
Those are options on the table? Ms. Sanders: Look, I’m not
going to get into specific policies that we’re considering. There’s a number of actions
that we’re looking at taking. When we’re ready to make
an announcement on that front, we’ll let you know. Jon.
The Press: Thanks a lot, Sarah. The midterms are eight days
from today. And we often get —
from both parties — what the midterms actually mean
the day after the election. So I wanted to ask you
what the midterms mean, before the election. The President, on October
the 18th, in Mississippi, said, “I’m not on the ticket. But I am on the ticket, because
this is also a referendum [on] me.” Is that right? Is this midterm election
a referendum on the President? Ms. Sanders: Look, I can’t get
into specifics that will impact the election. But I can tell you that
the President wants to see more people that support
his policies elected than not. Phil. The Press: Sarah, it’s now been
four weeks since Jamal Khashoggi was murdered inside
the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The President said
early on that, if the Saudis are found
responsible, there would be
“severe punishment.” That’s his word. It’s now obvious to the world
that Khashoggi was murdered, it was premeditated,
it was by the Saudis. Why has there been no action? Ms. Sanders: Look,
the President met last week with CIA Director Gina Haspel, after having gathered
additional intelligence on her overseas trip. And the administration
is weighing different options, and we’ll make an announcement about what the decision
of that action is. The Press: But there’s been
no action, Sarah. Is he considering
any actual action? Ms. Sanders: Like I just said, the administration
is considering what action we will take moving forward
based on that information and the briefing that the
President received last week. Jill. The Press: Sarah, two things
for you. I want to go back
to the tone in question, because the President said
he was planning to tone down his rhetoric this week. But at his rallies
since the suspicious packages began being mailed,
the President has called out Maxine Waters
by name at his rallies. He’s stood there as his
supporters chant “Lock her up,” in reference
to Hillary Clinton, who he continues to called
“Crooked Hillary Clinton.” Will the President stop
using that kind of language in light of the fact
that these individuals were targeted by this attack? Ms. Sanders: The President
is going to continue to draw contrasts. Let’s not forget
that these same Democrats have repeatedly
attacked the President, whether it was
Eric Holder saying “Kick them when they’re down”; whether it was Hillary Clinton
saying “You can’t be civil until Democrats
have control of Congress”; or whether it was
Maxine Waters, who encouraged
her supporters to get up not just in
the President’s face, but all administration
officials’ faces. Those actions were
from those Democrats. The President is going
to continue to fight back when these individuals
not only attack him, but attack members
of his administration and supporters
of his administration. The Press: And then
(inaudible) follow up on something else. Why does the President
feel like it’s necessary to send active-duty troops
to the border when he’s already sent
National Guardsmen down there who are doing
the exact same job as the active-duty troops
would be able to do? Ms. Sanders: The President’s
number-one job and number-one priority
is to protect the safety and security of Americans,
and he’s going to do what he deems necessary
in order to do that. For specifics regarding that,
I’d encourage you to tune into the press conference
this afternoon. John. The Press: Thank you, Sarah.
Two brief questions. The first, a follow-up
about the question on Brazil. Up until a few months ago,
you used to give us readouts of the President’s calls
with world leaders, including congratulatory calls
to newly elected leaders such as President Macron,
Chancellor Merkel. Did the President,
or does the President plan to, make a call
to President-elect Bolsonaro? Ms. Sanders: He did. And he spoke with him
last night. I actually sent a note
to the White House press pool. If you didn’t receive that, I’ll make sure that you do
after the briefing is over. The Press: All right.
My other question, Sarah — Ms. Sanders: Sorry.
Second question. The Press: — is this:
With the election eight days away, some Republicans,
such as Mr. Hugin, the nominee for the Senate
in New Jersey, do not mention
the President at all,
do not invoke his name or image. Others, such as Mr. DeWine —
running for governor of Ohio — have him in brochures
and pictures. Is the President aware that
some candidates run against him? And is this going to enter
into his decision where to go
in the final days? Ms. Sanders: That’s a decision for individual
candidates to make. I think the President has
an incredible story to tell. He’s had a historic first
two years — a number of successes
that I think any Republican running for office
should be proud of. Jim. The Press: Sarah, yeah,
I wanted to ask you — David Lapan, who was
a spokesperson over at DHS under General Kelly
— Chief of Staff Kelly — a former Marine
who worked at the Pentagon, tweeted this morning: “I dealt w/ the news media
nearly every day. I know quite a bit about
the press and know this — they are NOT the enemy
of the American people.” Shouldn’t you reserve
the term “enemy” for people who are actually
the enemy of the United States, rather than journalists? Ms. Sanders: The President is
not referencing all media. He’s talking about
the growing amount of fake news that exists in the country, and the President
is calling that out. The Press: May I ask
a follow-up? The Press: (Inaudible.)
Ms. Sanders: Sure. Go ahead. The Press: May I ask
a follow-up, please? May I ask a follow-up, please? Ms. Sanders: Go ahead, Jim. The Press: Since you
mentioned that, the President said this morning,
“The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People,
must stop the open & obvious hostility & report
the news accurately & fairly.” Can you state for the record
which outlets that you and the President regard
as the enemy of the people? Ms. Sanders: I’m not going to
walk through a list, but I think those individuals
probably know who they are. The Press: Would that include
my outlet, which received a bomb last week? Ms. Sanders: I don’t think it’s
necessarily specific to a general — broad generalization
of a full outlet. At times, I think
there’s individuals that the President
would be referencing. Jordan. The Press: So you’re not going
to state for the record then — I mean, if the President is
going to say the fake news media are the enemy of the people, and if you’re going to
stand there and continue to say that there are some journalists,
some news outlets in this country
that meet that characterization, shouldn’t you have the guts,
Sarah, to state which outlets, which journalists
are the enemy of the people? Ms. Sanders: I think it’s
irresponsible of a news organization
like yours to blame responsibility
of a pipe bomb that was not sent
by the President — not just blame the President,
but blame members of his administration
for those heinous acts. I think that is outrageous,
and I think it’s irresponsible. The Press: The bomber
was caught, Sarah. We didn’t say the President — Ms. Sanders: Jim,
I’ve given you three questions. Jordan, go ahead. The Press: Thanks, Sarah. The President
has talked multiple times about how the Republican
lawmakers are going to
protect preexisting conditions if they keep
control of Congress. But the administration
is supporting a lawsuit that would undercut those
protections under Obamacare and take in a couple
of regulatory actions to that effect as well. So how do you square
those two stances? And what’s the plan — the Republican plan
for protecting preexisting — Ms. Sanders: Look,
the President’s healthcare plan that he’s laid out covers
preexisting conditions. The President wants
to lower premiums to make healthcare
more affordable. Nobody will be charged
higher premiums if they keep their coverage, and nobody will be denied
coverage under the President. Emerald.
The Press: Thank you, Sarah. On Chancellor Merkel’s
announcement that she won’t — she’ll be stepping down
as party leader and won’t seek to rerun
as Chancellor, how does that — what is the reaction
from the administration, and how does that
affect the relationship with Germany going forward? Ms. Sanders: We’re aware
of the announcement, and this is an internal matter
for the Chancellor and the German people. We’re going to continue
to work with the Chancellor and continue to develop
that relationship. Blake. The Press: Sarah, why did the
President — Ms. Sanders: Blake, go ahead. The Press: — call Andrew Gillum
a “thief.” Why did the President,
in his tweet, call Andrew Gillum a “thief”? Ms. Sanders: April,
I’ll come back to you. Blake, go ahead. The Press: Sarah, thank you.
Before you walked out here — just a handful of minutes
before you walked out, there was a report that said,
should the meeting between President Trump
and President Xi of China not go well, in terms
of easing the trade war, the trade tensions,
then, at that point, the U.S. would go forth with
the $257 billion in tariffs. Is that indeed the timetable that the administration
is working with here? Ms. Sanders: I’m not going
to get ahead of the President’s meeting,
and I hope it goes well. April, go ahead. The Press: How important
is that — Ms. Sanders: Sorry, go ahead. The Press: How important
is that meeting then? Because we heard Larry Kudlow
say, last week or two weeks ago, that maybe there might not be
a lot of detail that comes from it, in terms of trade
and going back and forth. Ms. Sanders: As the President
likes to say, “We’ll see what happens.” I’m not going to get ahead
of the conversation. You have two of the most
powerful leaders in the world. I think that’s consequential
no matter how you look at it. And we’ll see what happens
when they sit down. April, go ahead. The Press: The President
was tweeting today. In one tweet, specifically,
he called Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for
governor in Florida, a “thief.” What is his definition
of that statement? And also, I want to ask you about issues
of voter suppression. The President has talked
about voter fraud. Ms. Sanders: Let me answer
your first question. That individual is under
FBI investigation. I would refer you to that. The Press: But he’s not under
investigation; his (inaudible) —
Ms. Sanders: I’m not going to get into specifics
on that matter because it involves two
candidates running for office, and I’m not going to impact
that due to the Hatch Act. I’ll leave that to the President to make those types
of statements. And your second question?
The Press: Yes. Second question: The President
talks about voter fraud at a time
when there are allegations and proof
of voter suppression going — taking place in the state
of Georgia, where Stacy Abrams is ahead
of the Republican contender, and also in North Dakota, where Native Americans
who don’t have a street address but have a P.O. box
if they live on a reservations — they’re not able to vote.
So what’s going on with that? Is the President
talking about that? Is he working on that issue? Ms. Sanders: Certainly
we don’t support any type of voter suppression. What we do support
is voter integrity. Again, I’m not going
to weigh into specifics that have an impact on an
election that’s a few days away. We’ll leave that
for the President to lay out that specific case. Saagar. Saagar, go ahead. The Press: Thanks, Sarah. Could you tell us,
does the White House currently believe that they have
the legal authority to close the southern border? And is it an option
that’s being explored, with relation to the caravan? Ms. Sanders: Again, we have a
number of options on the table. We’re exploring
each one of those. The Press: But does
the White House Counsel believe? Ms. Sanders: When we have
a decision on that, we’ll let you know.
Vivian. The Press: Thanks, Sarah.
Two questions, please. First, last week,
we asked the President whether he had called
President Obama or any of the others that
the bombs were addressed to. And he said, “If they want[ed]
me to. But…we’ll probably pass.” Can you explain why
that decision was taken? Ms. Sanders: The President did
speak with Governor Cuomo of New York last week.
And as of this time, there aren’t any plans
for other calls. If there are,
we’ll let you know. The Press: Just one quick one —
Ms. Sanders: Hallie, go ahead. Last question.
Sorry. The Press: One more about
Jamal Khashoggi. Can you tell us if CIA Director
Haspel actually heard the tape that the Turks allegedly
have proving that he was killed in the embassy —
in the consulate? Ms. Sanders: I can’t confirm
or deny the specifics of the intelligence that Director Haspel saw
while she was there. Last question. Hallie, go ahead. The Press: Thanks, Sarah. So throughout the course
of this briefing, you have repeatedly defended
the President’s attacks on his political opponents
as valid because the midterms
are coming up. So at what point —
Ms. Sanders: No. The Press: — does
the White House — Ms. Sanders: Not
because of the midterms. I’ve defended the President — The Press: You said you’ve
supported drawing contrast. Ms. Sanders: I’ve defended the
President fighting back when he’s regularly attacked.
There’s a difference. It doesn’t matter
if there’s a midterm or not, the President is
going to defend himself, and he’s going to fight back. The Press: From a political
perspective, right? You’re making that point. Ms. Sanders: From
any perspective. The Press: But at what point
does a national tragedy take precedence over the
President needing to punch back? If not now, when? Ms. Sanders: I think you saw
the President do exactly that in the wake
of a national tragedy, not just this week,
but every time our country has experienced
the type of heartache and pain that we have over the last week. This is a President who’s risen
to that occasion and worked to bring
our country together in a number of occasions —
whether it’s the hurricanes, whether it’s
the Las Vegas shooting, whether it was
the Pittsburgh shooting. All horrible, horrible tragedies that this country
has experienced. And this President has come out, condemned the attacks when
it is caused by an individual, and tried to look
for ways to provide and bring the country together
when it was a natural disaster. The Press: But both he and you
have also acknowledged that, in the next breath,
after he calls for unity, he does talk about division and what you describe
as “drawing contrast.” Is he incapable of —
in the words of some — “toning it down”
and toning down the rhetoric? Ms. Sanders: Again, I think
the President has had a number of moments of
bringing the country together. Once again, I’ll remind you
that the very first thing — The Press: But when would you
say those were? Ms. Sanders: — the President did
was condemn the attacker. And the very first thing —
The Press: And the second thing he did was go
after the media and press. Ms. Sanders: — the media did
was blame the President. You guys have
a huge responsibility to play in the divisive nature
of this country, when 90 percent of the coverage
of everything this President does is negative,
despite the fact that the country
is doing extremely well, despite the fact
that the President is delivering on exactly what he said
he was going to do if elected. And he got elected
by an overwhelming majority of 63 million Americans
who came out and supported him, and wanted to see
his policies enacted. He’s delivered on that. He’s delivered
on the promises he’s made. And, if anything,
I think it is sad and divisive the way that every single thing
that comes out of the media — 90 percent of what comes out
of the media’s mouth is negative about this President, despite the fact
that the economy is booming, despite the fact he said
he would fix the trade deals. And he’s done exactly that — The Press: But Sarah — Ms. Sanders: He said
he would defeat ISIS and he has. The President has been
delivering day in and day out. And I think it would be nice if,
every once and a while, we could focus
on a few of the positive things the President has done,
instead of just attacking him. The Press: Sarah, more broadly,
though — Ms. Sanders: Thanks
so much, guys. Have a great day.

  5. Brilliant press secretary!!
    My only gripe is the whitewash of the question regarding the Saudi murder of Kashoggi …… the reason no action will be taken , is that a massive arms deal between SA and USA 🇺🇸 is in progress.
    A deal that in my opinion will result of more Yemen 🇾🇪 deaths 😕

I wish she would say, “tell me one good thing you have said about Trump since he’s been in office.” No wonder the left is losing their minds over Trump…if you watch the MSM, you would think he is Hitler reincarnated. It’s lies, lies, lies all day long and biased opinions. I don’t see how these people sleep at night.

  8. Look at all the faces- they all have their talking points like mindless sheep . Why put Sarah or anyone else through this crap . They only report negative , they ignore accomplishments , they pick, they prod , they so why have these press conferences. . They are so transparent.

  9. "What will it take to stop these killings?" The very first child born into the world killed the second child born into the world. When God's kingdom comes, and His will is done, there will be peace on earth.

  15. The Southern Border issue is a classic case of Misdirection: "Misdirection is a form of deception in which the attention of an audience is focused on one thing in order to distract its attention from another";…. in this case look to something big either sneaking into our country from the Northern Border or something big happening on the Northern Border that will impact America and American politics on a large scale." (Hmmmmm Thinking Like Our Enemy!)

  16. What about Anti Christian and Anti White…Why are you not talking about that?! ..Jews are always getting the limelight on what happens with them…there are others that are attacked by the very same evil that perpetrates on the Jewish community

  18. Netanyahu and Trump should hang together for crimes against humanity for killing innocent civilians in the world

  19. President Donald Trump was right again !!! Recent trip to Central America investigating the migrant caravan heading to the United States–and what the mainstream media is not telling you about it.

  20. I feel bad for Sarah. What a tough job to be a press secretary. Regardless if you like her or not and regardless of who the president is, being a press secretary is very difficult.

  21. If Jim Acosta is not in the room, hooray! Keep that jerk out! I have boycotted all the main stream media outlets..not worth any sane person's time. The news media is in denial…yes, you are responsible for your words and your behavior….just give up…you are all morally bankrupt…shut up or leave the room. Sarah has to take all these dummies seriously…? tough job… The American people reject the MSM and their lies, disrespect, and propaganda.

  22. The tree Stooges of the media is crowing every day with puberty remarks in blame game in ambush as if their income is on stake instead of informing the public and research to the objectivity

  23. Acosta and April Kelley are OBVIOUS Soros, milllxxx…BILLIONAIRE Plants..posing as Reporters. This is long running game. Americans shut off tv when these Fakers come on.

  24. HaHa the title of this article from the New York Times has me laughing "After the White House Banned Jim Acosta, Should Other Journalists Boycott Its Press Briefings?" Oh no, not that! Yes please boycott yourselves. Your badgering and biased lines of questioning is not wanted.


  26. The Media, especially this first hypocrite making & throwing darts instead of giving sympathy or actually discuss the situation.
    This is not media, it's propaganda!! Are they part of the ones receiving $1000 pay outs? Just like Chicago, they handed out $100… Didn't keep count of who they were or how much each received!
    The more the Media is Anti-American, the more ,WE THE PEOPLE will Fight you, you communist-like media.

  27. I got ahead of myself. Numerous states & ACORN were caught committing fraudulent votes during the Obama elections. Nothing was done. There were ppl bragging how many times they voted NOTHING was done.
    President Trump has accomplished and surpassed history breaking record that helped many of you, have and keep a job.

    Unbelievable. This video shows just how vicious and ungrateful some people are.

  28. Mark on a map where these mass shootings occur and then Mark on a map where the nearest FBI field office is real eye-opener.

  29. I hope that Sarah will write a book years from now. Not a gossip book but a book about what she loves about our freedoms and why civics needs to be taught to the next generation. When my children ask about government, we go to Pager University free online.

  30. Yep, Sarah will be prepared. Plenty of baby wipes, baby powder and pampers while she re-potty trains little Jimmy. Little Jimmy will have his own safe space.

  31. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders deserves the highest award in my home, oatmeal raisen apple cookie with a side of fresh milk and an opportunity to meet my truly wonderful spouse. Exemplifying the voice of common sense. Doing a great job!

  34. The left are all idiots, and are wrong about everything!  The right are all idiots and are wrong about everything!  There, now you don't have to read all the comments 🙂

  35. Wow the media are a bunch of vultures. picking at Sanders words. I can see why she would want to leave, because of these fools.

  36. Did Sanders quit her job? It's been over three weeks now, the longest I've seen any modern day press secretary go without answering questions. Guess this is the new normal?

  37. I have an idea for funding the border wall.
    Declassify ALL the documents being held by the DOJ and FBI pertaining to the attempted coup including illegal surveillance of a Presidential candidate using the Intelligence agencies of the United States and foreign powers including the FISA warrants.

    Fire  Rosenstein and all the Obama holdovers and replace them with qualified outsiders.

    Fire Wray and all the Obama sycophants and replace them with qualified constitutionalist law enforcement candidates.

    Begin real investigations on the numerous felonies committed by the Obama administration, the DNC/Podesta’s,  Secretary Clinton, and the Clinton Foundation. Examine HRC’s illegal server and Abidens laptop.

    Convene grand juries, charge, indict, and trial each and every one of them.

    Those who are convicted of treason, and we the people know who they are, should get the firing squad.  

    Establish a lottery for the five man firing squad riflemen selection.

    Lets say $100.00 per ticket with an extra two positions for alternates.

    Use the money to build the wall.
