Fiery 'You Continue to Misrepresent' My Comments: Sanders Battles Press on Trump & Guns
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders ripped the White House Press Corps for "misrepresent[ing]" her statements from the podium.
Sanders was responding to a question on gun control from Bloomberg reporter Toluse Olorunnipa, who asked about President Trump's true stance on gun control.
"The president, during his campaign, said nobody knows the system better than me which is why I alone can fix it," Olorunnipa said.
Olorunnipa said that "certain things" Trump supports do not have similarly widespread approval in Congress, so he only moves forward with what he can get done.
Sanders cut off Olorunnipa mid-sentence, telling him and the rest of the press that they "continue to misunderstand and misrepresent the comments [she is] making."
She said Trump is moving forward with what he can accomplish as chief executive while still abiding by Article II of the Constitution.
"We can't just write things down and make them law, we have to follow a process," she said.
Sanders said that under our Federalist system, some things that the White House or Congress cannot get done should be left for states to decide, and that Trump will and has pressed states to enact his agenda.
Olorunnipa also asked if Trump fully supports a compromise plan on gun policy from Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.).
Sanders said Trump supports strengthening the background check system.
