Sanders Says Trump Policy Would Have Kept Out NYC Bomb Suspect

She next called on CNN's Jim Acosta, who was not having her response.

During Monday afternoon's press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked by Matthew Nussbaum of Politico about the president lashing out at Weigel's tweet and the discrepancy between these sort of incidents and actual Russian disinformation campaigns, which he has always seemed unconcerned with.

Shortly before Sanders began her briefing, Department of Homeland Security spokesman said Tyler Houlton said in a Twitter post that the suspect was admitted to the US from Bangladesh on a family immigrant visa in 2011.

But Sanders wasn't about to let him get away with discounting Trump's de-regulation and tax reform efforts.

The errors, she said, were intentional and malicious. "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people, something that happens regularly", she said, yelling "I'm not done" at those who attempted to interject.

"This was nothing more than an individual trying to put their bias into their reporting and something that, frankly, has gotten a little bit out of control", Sanders said. "This is a big problem, and we think it should be something taken seriously". When questions kept getting shouted at her, she barked: "I'm not done".

"You can't say that it's an honest mistake, when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false", she continued, saying that "there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process". Acosta refused to stop talking after Sanders requested multiple times that she move onto another question.

"The ABC report by Brian Ross", she replied.

Sanders, in accusing media outlets of "purposefully putting out information" they knew to be false, did not cite evidence that it was so in Ross' case.

"Hold on, I'll take this, Joe".

"I'm old enough to remember when President Trump's election was going to 'crash the market.' One year later: market up over 30%, two million new jobs & 1,000 new manufacturing jobs created every day just last month...and now Obama wants credit for the booming Trump economy", Sanders tweeted. "I needed to ask the question that I wanted to ask, which is".

"I'm not here to speak about my personal experience on that front, but I'm here to relay information on behalf of the president", she added.

Acosta asked anyway about "these accusations of misconduct against the president and you said he's denied them, whether or not they are false".

The reporter deleted the tweet and apologized for the error, but Sanders hammered him from the White House podium on Monday nonetheless.
