Sarah Sanders Gets Torched By Reporters Over Trump Working As A Puppet For The NRA: Watch
On Monday, during a press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got grilled by reporters who questioned her about Donald Trump’s relationship with the National Rifle Association.
Fox Business reporter Blake Burman asked why it appeared that Trump had softened his support for raising the age limit to buy rifles.
“Now you just said that it is something that is still being discussed,” he asked. “It feels like a little bit of a downgrade. Why the downgrade and to those who would say, well he had lunch with the NRA over the weekend, did the NRA get ahold of him?”
Sanders tried claiming that Trump still supported the “concept” of raising the age limit, but then said it would “be premature to weigh in.”
Trump had a meeting with the NRA over the weekend and it was not published on the White House schedule. Sanders insisted that Trump wasn’t trying to keep the meeting a secret.
“The president is taking information from a number of stakeholders and to try to pretend he’s being influenced by any one group would be ridiculous,” Sanders said.
“The reason I’m asking about what day the lunch took place, Sarah, is because yesterday morning the NRA spokesperson said these are things he is discussing when it comes to the age limit that Blake was asking about,” Daily Mail reporter Francesca Chambers noted. “It does seem like there was a softening of the stance from the president between what we heard last week and what we are hearing now today.”
