Fiery Sanders Blasts Reporter: 'You're Accusing the President of Being Complicit in a School Shooting'
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blasted a reporter Wednesday, taking issue with his seeming accusation that President Trump is "complicit" in recent school shootings.
NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander asked Sanders what the Trump administration is doing to prevent school shootings.
Alexander argued that since the Las Vegas massacre in October, there have been several school shootings, including one in Benton, Ky, Tuesday.
Sanders said that any loss of life, especially at a school, is "incredibly sad," and that "all Americans deserve to be safe... in their communities."
"That's not in dispute," Alexander countered, pressing her on what Trump is specifically doing.
"What is the policy the president is willing to pursue to help make sure these students are safe?" he asked, telling Sanders that Trump should address the nation and use the "bully pulpit."
Sanders then fired back that Alexander's line of questioning was "outrageous."
"Let me be very clear on this: the fact that you are basically accusing the president of being complicit in a school shooting is outrageous," said Sanders, emphasizing he directed the ATF to review "firearm provisions" and tasked the Department of Justice with cracking down on "violent crime" overall.
Alexander denied he was accusing the president of anything.
