Shortly after President Trump held a briefing where he updated the press on his plan to lower drug prescription costs for all Americans, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing.
Watch the video below:
Sarah introduced Alex Azar, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services up first to discuss more of the president’s plan to lower prescription costs across the board.
After Azar had finished answering questions, Sarah got back up to the podium to answer some more questions.
Immediately, they jumped down her throat about the alleged comments made by a staffer about Senator John McCain and demanded that the woman be fired immediately for allegedly saying that John McCain is dying.
Sarah refused to allow these allegation to be made without and proof whatsoever.
“I’m not going to validate a leak one way or the other out of an internal staff meeting.”
It would be irresponsible for Sarah to comment on these allegations that have no basis in reality and she was correct in refusing to answer the question.
The next round of questions referred to the connection between AT&T and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. The press wanted to know if President Trump believes it was a mistake for Michael Cohen to be dealing with AT&T.
Sarah surprised everyone when she answered.
“I think this further proves that the president is not going to be influenced by special interests. That’s actually the definition of draining the swamp; something the president talked about repeatedly during the campaign and for anything beyond that I would direct you to the president’s outside counsel.”
Draining the swamp was why the people of this great country elected Trump and that is exactly what he is doing!
SHARE if you want Trump to continue to drain the swamp!
