  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders Flamed for Pretending to Be a Regular Ol' Person on Twitter

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President to reporters on Tuesday, saying that if he's a racist, "why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV?"

"The president's laid out what he wants".

Republicans have accused Democrats of holding up budget talks in order to secure long-term protections for those in the US under DACA.

Congress should consult with the White House whenever it seeks confidential information that may be covered by executive privilege, a White House spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

"I found it quite interesting that he is coming out to attack this president considering that he is the one that was recently defending an actually oppressive regime and served as a mouthpiece for the oppressive Cuban government", she said.




Sanders responded by pointing out that Republicans didn't have the 60 votes they needed to block a filibuster in the Senate.

Sanders said Democrats attacking the president over his alleged expletive descriptor are playing politics and "using it as an excuse not to help this president get something accomplished".

"So Democrats either need to decide that they are going to come here to do their jobs and they are going to govern or they're going to put their national security ahead of their own personal, political agendas, or they're not".

Republican leaders proposed a short-term measure Tuesday evening to extend funding through February 16, an acknowledgment of an ongoing disagreement over the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that has stopped Democrats from supporting a longer plan.

That seems unlikely, however, as Democrats disagreed with Trump's repeated demand that Congress offer border wall funding in exchange for a DACA fix. After yet another eventual day, Sanders returned to meet with the media, as reported by ABC News on January 17.
