President Trump and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to back away from tweets President Trump issued suggesting MSNBC host Joe Scarborough killed an intern who worked for the then-congressman in the summer of 2001.
Her death was ruled an accident, and her widower husband has asked Twitter to take down Trump’s tweets. Twitter has refused.
Here are a couple of the tweets, as well as appearances today by Trump and McEnany.
This is the appearance in the Imus show in which Scarborough joked about the intern’s death.
