This is a video I took Monday in the briefing room at the White House. Gives you a bit of an idea what it’s like to be in the room with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and the reporters.
Here, she argues that the media are partially responsible for the divisions in the country and says just maybe they could occasionally say something nice about President Trump:
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.
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.
