On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump's retweeting of a British white supremacist group by saying that Trump is "elevating" the discussion.


Trump retweeted a trio of wildly anti-Muslim tweets from U.K. white supremacist group Britain First. The State Department has issued a rare warning to the White House that these kinds of inflammatory tweets could imperil the lives of Americans working abroad.

Wallace rolled a clip of Sanders' Thursday press conference in which she said that the president was just calling attention to "the issues of the day" and that she expects "he will continue to do so."

"I think what he's done is to elevate the conversation to talk about a real issue and a real threat and that's extreme violence and extreme terrorism, something that we know to be very real and something the president feels strongly about."

"Oh, Sarah," said Wallace after the clip. "Your boss doesn't 'elevate' anything."
