President Trump put a reporter in her place at the White House Friday after she asked about his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
“You’ve spoken so passionately about the circumstances that led to Otto Warmbier’s death. In the same breath, you’re defending Kim Jong Un’s human rights record. How can you do that?” a reporter asked.
“You know why? Because I don’t want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family,” he responded.
“I don’t want to see — excuse me — because I don’t want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family,” Trump repeated. “I want to have a good relationship with North Korea. I want to have a good relationship with many other countries.”
Trump also defended Sarah Sanders during the interview, saying, “Sarah loves this job, and she’s announced not with me. I read the same report. I think CBS she said it’s a false report. It was fake news. At some point, she will leave like everybody leaves. We’ll get somebody else. Sarah has done a fantastic job. I don’t think she was leaving. In fact, she was very insulted they came out and said that. I don’t think she is leaving.”
