Spicer: If Trump Puts Russian Dressing on a Salad, Media Sees 'Russian Connection'
During his daily briefing on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer got into an exchange when he was asked if the Trump administration needs to "revamp its image."
Reporter April Ryan pointed out that the administration is involved in several investigations related to Russian interference during the election and alleged ties between Moscow and the Trump team.
Spicer pushed back, arguing that Ryan and many in the press have an "agenda" to keep asking about Russia.
"If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that's a Russian connection," Spicer said.
He said that everyone who's been briefed on Russia's meddling in the election - whether they are Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal - have all come to the conclusion that there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump team.
But how do you change the perception that there may be some scandal? Ryan pressed.
Spicer said President Trump is committed to fulfilling his campaign promises, and he will ultimately be judged by how he does on jobs, the economy and national security.
"That's what he's been focused on since day one," Spicer said. "We're going to keep focusing on that every single day."
