Sarah Sanders snaps at Jim Acosta over immigration deal questions: ‘I’m not negotiating with you, next question’
After President Donald Trump’s bipartisan “bill of love” meeting with Democrats to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy and his border wall left reporters confused about where exactly he stood, the White House press secretary got testy when asked for clarification.
“The president wants border security,” she responded.
“OK, so what does border security entail?” He asked. “Does it include the wall at this stage or could the wall wait until later?”
After a back-and-forth between the CNN reporter and press secretary that appeared to leave neither side satisfied, Sanders snapped.
“If [Democrats] say ‘thanks but no thanks’ to the wall —” Acosta began, but was cut off.
“Jim, I’m not negotiating this with you,” Sanders replied before taking another reporter’s question. “I’ll let Congress take care of that.”
