White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked by a reporter on Tuesday whether Americans will ever hear a tape of President Donald Trump saying the N-word.
In response, Sanders turned the insinuation that Trump is a racist back around on Democrats and the media.
Watch the full video below:
“Again, the person that a lot of his critics say that he is certainly wouldn’t have been in business with him for decades; certainly you wouldn’t have had Bill and Hillary Clinton — they attended his wedding; a number of Democrats begged him for campaign contributions,” Sanders said. “I think it is very convenient that these accusations started once the president became somebody running for office.”
She added, “He has shown time and time again, through his actions, through his policies, that he wants to be a president for all Americans.”
Sanders then argued President Trump has made it clear he wants to make America better for every American, not just specific groups of people.
On the issue of Trump’s combative style, Sanders pointed out the obvious.
You can review the entire press conference, including when Sanders blasted Omarosa, below:
“The president is always someone who is going to fight fire with fire. This is something that isn’t new,” she added.
Sanders urged reporters to focus on the strides being made in America’s minority communities instead of remaining hyper focused on race and the president’s mean tweets. She scolded the media for focusing on a “sparsely attended rally” instead of reporting on actual policies that helping minorities.
“I think we’d all be better off if the media gave that just a little bit more attention,” she concluded.
