In the wake of President Trump’s cancellation of the planned press briefing at the White House on Thursday due to the media’s “inflammatory rhetoric,” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders why she’s chosen not to have the briefing before press secretary Reince Priebus made that decision.
“I don’t think that there is anything more that I can say on that question,” Sanders responded, to which Tapper noted that in the past, White House press secretaries have said “ask me the substantive questions”, in response to reporters’ question about the performance of President Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.
During his Wednesday press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that she didn’t think it’s an appropriate thing for the White House to hold a press briefing prior to the Press Secretary for the Department of Justice, Jeff Sessions, holding a press briefing. But, Trump then decided to cancel the press briefing which Sanders then canceled. That prompted Tapper to ask Sanders: “Was that the right thing to do? You heard the media. Your boss was attacked by the media – you did not have your press briefing on Thursday.”
