Follow the White House press briefing

Trump often takes media questions during meetings with foreign leaders and Cabinet members, or while boarding a helicopter outside the White House.

During a news briefing on Monday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly dodged questions about what President Trump meant when he blasted the "breeding concept" of sanctuary cities - a term that was widely interpreted as a racist dogwhistle meant to dehumanize immigrants.

"I certainly would reject the idea that the president or this administration has halted freedom of the press".

"That's one of the reasons I'm standing here taking your questions", she said.


"We think the maximum pressure campaign is working, but we're not going to let up on that campaign until we see some of the words they've made go into concrete action but they're moving in the right direction", Sanders said. It seems to be a press-related question.

But just when she thought she would get away with it, Brian Karem-Sentinel Newspapers executive editor, Playboy White House correspondent and political analyst at CNN-asked her again to clarify: "To be specific, he's not talking about people having babies, yes?" And yes, the president has engaged in a multiyear campaign - "fake news" is the White House's official chyron - to strip the USA media of its standing in the country. Sanders says that as far as she knows, there has been no conversations between the two.

Sanders elaborated on her belief that the press had a responsibility to report information and events accurately. I think a number of people in this room do that every single day, they do their very best to provide fair and accurate information. "He said that had been one of the questions people had posed about him".

"I'll keep you posted if that changes at any time", she added.
