White House defends anti-Muslim President Trump tweets, says ‘it doesn’t matter if videos are real’
Yesterday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defended President Donald Trump’s decision to retweet a series of anti-Muslim videos from a British far-right account saying he circulated them to start a conversation about border security and immigration.
Sanders also said she doesn’t know how the videos got in front of Trump and wouldn’t say whether they were real. “Whether it is a real video, the threat is real,” Sanders told a small group of reporters after appearing on Fox News. “That is what the President is talking about, that is what the President is focused on is dealing with those real threats, and those are real no matter how you look at it.”
