Huckabee Sanders Lashes Out At Trump’s Critics: ‘Niger Is Not Benghazi!’
Appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lambasted Democrats for comparing the four soldiers who were killed in Niger this year to the four Americans who died in Benghazi while President Barack Obama was in office.
“Democrats are calling this President Trump’s Benghazi,” co-host Steve Doocy told Sanders.
“Look, these are not comparable events,” Sanders replied without offering an explanation. “I know the Democrats want to make this a big negative attack piece against this president. But to try to compare the two is simply just a cheap attempt by the Democrats to try to taint this president,” she added.
Sanders went on to suggest that it was inappropriate to place responsibility on the president for the American deaths in Niger because “this is still an active investigation.”
