White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday on Fox News that Democrats in Congress were to blame for President Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs on Mexico.
Sanders said Trump had a “great deal of confidence” in how his attorney general, Bill Barr, had handled special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“He has done a fantastic job of laying out all of the parameters of what has taken place with the Mueller report, making that public. This is total exoneration and case closed. We saw Robert Mueller this week closing up his shop, completed his investigation and moving on,” Sanders continued.
“Democrats have got to stop obsessing over something that never happened and start engaging with the president to fix some of the real problems that are happening right in front of their faces like the problem at the border,” she said, before suggesting that tariffs on Mexico wouldn’t have happened if Congress wasn’t investigating Trump.
“If Democrats would quit wasting so much time of their time attacking this president, the president wouldn’t have to engage Mexico in the same way because Congress would be doing its job. At some point they have to get serious about solving real problems and so far they continue to be unwilling to do that,” Sanders claimed.
The Trump administration announced that the new tariffs will begin at a rate of 5% starting June 10. The tariffs will increase to as much as 25% by October 1 if Mexico does not crack down on Central American migrants attempting to cross the U.S. border.
‘He looks like a florescent green helium balloon’: CNN panel breaks into hysterics at Sean Spicer on #DWTS
A CNN panel couldn't stop laughing as Republican Scott Jennings rushed to the side of former press secretary Sean Spicer, who debuted on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night dressed in a bright-green ruffled shirt and dancing the Salsa.
"No way. What the Hell?" Rye asked the second she saw the video of Spicer.
"So, you’ve seen it," Lemon asked Jennings. "So, is this the guy you remember?"
But Rye, blindsided by the chartreuse, cut in.
‘Not a single Republican reached out to ask what can we do’: Trump’s ‘my African-American’ fan blasts GOP
President Donald Trump once called Gregory Cheadle "My African-American" during a California campaign rally in 2016, but now Trump's champion is out and he says it's due to the GOP's white supremacy.
In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, Cheadle asked how any person of color could be part of a party that doesn't want them.
"Well, he and the party have just shown that they have no interest in any of group but white," said Cheadle. "Whites are the primary group. Everyone else may get crumbs. But his agenda is targeted towards benefitting whites. For the GOP as well. The GOP is they want to slash Social Security. They want to slash welfare. They don't say diddly-squat about cutting subsidies, loan guarantees, government contracts and whatever else for the wealthy. So they're all about themselves."
The real reason Trump is so jealous of Obama is that he might win an Emmy: Trump biographer
A CNN panel broke out into laughter talking about President Donald Trump's pathetic jealousy of his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
Obama's new book is slated to score major profits, so he was given a substantial advance for the book. Former first lady Michelle Obama has already enjoyed considerable success from the release of her book and tour. The couple has since made a production deal with Netflix for their company that will focus on fiction and non-fiction stories with a positive social message. Meanwhile, Trump is struggling to win reelection.
"Why is this president so fixated on the former president?" wondered Lemon. "Whether it is North Korea, federal judges, a racist birther lie about the former president not being born here, that’s the one that got him into the political scene. It seems like this president has an obsession with former President Obama. What’s going on?"
