Watch: Sarah Sanders Invokes Unnamed ‘Legal Scholars’ To Justify Trump’s Trampling Of The Constitution On Citizenship
During an interview on Fox & Friends on Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders claimed that “legal scholars” have given President Donald Trump the green light to end birthright citizenship even though it’s a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
In response, host Brian Kilmeade pointed out to Sanders that many critics of Trump see the move as a “xenophobic, racist quest to change America.”
“I’m not at all surprised that the media and Democrats, which sometimes can be one in the same, would overplay their hand in the way that they’re doing,” Sanders replied. “The reason we’re in this predicament is because Democrats in Congress have failed to do their job. And the president is going to look at any way possible that he can find legally and constitutionally to make sure that we’re doing everything we can.”
“Can he used an executive order or does he have to go through Congress?” co-host Ainsley Earhardt wondered.
“There are a number of legal scholars who certainly think he can,” Sanders insisted. “Again, the president is going to take whatever powers he has to protect our borders and to protect our country.”
