White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out the media over their unfair reporting on Russia.

“I’m not sure why that is so hard for the media to write about,” she said.


A reporter asked Sanders, “The president has forcefully spoken out against Iran and North Korea. He said he would forcefully speak out against any threat. Russia’s interference is a threat to our democracy. Why would he not forcefully denounce that?”

“The president has been incredibly tough on Russia,” Sanders shot back. “He has brought it up directly to him in person every single time that they have met. He has put unprecedented sanctions and been extremely tough on Russia across a number of fronts, which we have addressed here it many times before. Frankly, I’m not sure why that is so hard for the media to write about.”

“We’ve repeated it time and time again. The policy that the president has been — since day one in office — has been extremely tough on Russia more so than any other country,” she added. (RELATED: ‘Totally Out Of Control’ — Sarah Sanders Calls Out The Media For Reporting Literal Fake News)
