White House press secretary Sarah Sanders took a reporter to school after he asked a race-baiting question during Monday’s press briefing.
Yahoo News’ Hunter Walker asked, “The president has repeatedly touted black unemployment when faced with allegations of racism. Given those numbers, the low black unemployment, why do you think so many in the African-American community are still so uncomfortable with the president?”
“That’s a question you would have to ask them,” Sanders flatly responded. “But we hope and pray and expect to spend every day working to build a greater relationship within that community. And as I said before, with all Americans, this is a president who wants to lead for everybody. He’s not looking to lead for any one person, any one group. But he wants to be the president of the United States. And I think if you look at the policies that he has enacted over the first year, you can see that he’s doing exactly that.” (RELATED: Trump Sounds Off From White House: ‘There’s No Talking To The Taliban’ [VIDEO])
“He’s building an economy that helps every American. He’s cutting regulations that help every American,” she continued. “He’s helping put ISIS on the run which helps on the safety and security of all Americans. He’s helping secure the border, he’s helping to put an end to loopholes in our failed immigration system. All of those things benefit all Americans. That’s what this president is focused on, and that’s what we’ve done in our first year and that’s what we look forward to doing in the next seven years.” (RELATED: President Trump: ‘The World Has Taken Advantage Of Us On Trade’–‘We’re Stopping It Cold’ [VIDEO])
