White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the American people deserved better, and didn’t deserve for the election of President Trump “to try to be taken down.” Sanders made the comment in an interview Monday after being asked if special counsel Robert Mueller deserved better from the president than his constant criticisms.
She further defended the president’s rhetoric on the issue by pointing out the Democrats and media accused him of being an agent of a foreign government.
Sanders also suggested Democrats and “liberal media” are the ones who should apologize.
“I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and they owe the America people an apology — they wasted two-years and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that impact everyone’s day to day life,” she stated. “I mean lets not forget this took place under the Obama administration — you had people like Clapper and Brennan lying to Congress to perpetuate this idea of Russia collusion against the president.”
Secretary Sanders also slammed the Mueller probe as a two-year waste of taxpayer time and dollars.
