Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released a video vigorously defending the president amid The Atlantic’s report claiming he insulted fallen soldiers.
In the video posted Sunday, Sanders said President Trump has “the greatest amount of respect” for our armed forces. The former official also noted she has watched the president fight to make sure the men and women our military have the resources they need.
The malicious lies about @realDonaldTrump from anonymous sources in the Atlantic are disgusting.
This story is an insult to journalism.
