On Monday, CNN's Jake Tapper slammed White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she claimed that President Donald Trump has "brought the nation together" in a week of ongoing violence.

"The White House Press Secretary defended President Trump's response to a series of major traumatic events gripping and in some cases terrifying the nation," Tapper said.

"Sarah Sanders claimed that President Trump has brought the nation together. She says he bears no responsibility for tensions, and despite the president directly blaming the media for tensions, Sarah Sanders claimed he had not blamed anyone," he said.

Tapper added, "She said a lot of things that were difficult to believe, and in some cases, some things that were just plain false. The tone from the White House today was striking, considering that many Americans are mourning today and still others are just scared."
