White House fires back at top GOP senator's scorching criticism

White House fires back at top GOP senator's scorching criticism

"I would certainly trust the president and my comments far above those of other reporters", Sanders said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has confirmed that there will, after all, be a time to talk about gun control and that time will be about 2pm on January 20th 2025. "He has an incredible team around him that's helping him lead that effort, and he's had tremendous accomplishments on the global stage by working with allies and confronting enemies".

The criticism from Corker, who just announced he will not run again in 2018, dovetails with an unusual news conference held earlier this week by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in the wake of reports that he'd referred to Trump as "a moron" over the summer.

Asked about another remark made by Trump Thursday in a separate meeting, that senior military leaders needed to provide him "a broad range of military options, when needed, at a much faster pace", Sanders was similarly vague. When pressed as to what he meant, especially given the problems with North Korea and rumors he will decertify the Iran nuclear agreement, the president would only say, "You'll find out".

"I don't know that that's the case, but I do think that we should call on all media to a higher standard", she said.

"It could be, The calm, the calm before the storm", Trump said. "So, I think we're quickly coming up to speed with what this is".

"We see a problem with any stories that are inaccurate or untruthful being presented to the American people as facts", she said, punting. "He's been very clear that that's his number one priority, and if he feels action is necessary, he will take it".

Still, news outlets have run stories since then claiming that Trump and Tillerson have clashed over staff and policy on Iran and North Korea and that their relationship has been damaged beyond fix.

That's also why any decent White House reporter needs to press her on the moral outrage that is her "showing up for work" every day.
