(National Sentinel) Hitting Back: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was clearly agitated on Tuesday over the establishment media’s continued accusations that President Donald J. Trump is racist.
In addition, Sanders took a swipe at Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York for making s similar unsubstantiated claim.
During the daily press conference on Tuesday, Fox News reporter John Roberts questioned Sanders saying, “(Schumer) said last night ‘Mr. President show you’re not a racist, cut a deal on DACA.’”
Roberts noted that Schumer is clearly trying to use Trump’s alleged remarks about African countries being “sh–holes” — which the president and others have refuted — as a point of leverage.
“Look, I think that it is an outrageous claim,” Sanders shot back. “Frankly, I think if the critics of the president were who he said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV?”
“Why did Chuck Schumer and all his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?” she continued, referencing their successful attempts to convince Trump to financially support their campaigns in the past.
“If they are who they want to try to portray him as, why did they want to be with him for years and years in various activities, whether it was events and fundraisers and other things?” Sanders continued. “I think it’s just an outrageous and ludicrous excuse.”
She noted further, “It’s a sad day for our country. They’re willing to throw away the progress and negotiations and not make big steps that we need to happen, whether it’s funding our military, supporting our government or making a deal on DACA, which they say is a huge priority, something they want to do.”
Trump has blamed Democrats for refusing to work with him and Republicans to come up with a viable immigration bill compromise regarding so-called “Dreamers.”
