USA: Trump 'furious, disgusted' at Bannon's 'completely false' claims — WH Press Sec.

SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «I think that is a ridiculous accusation and one that I'm pretty sure we've addressed many times from here before. And if that's in reference to comments made by Mr. Bannon, I'd refer you back to the ones that he made previously on '60 Minutes,' where he called the collusion with Russia about this President a total farce. So I think I would... Еще look back at that. If anybody has been inconsistent, it's been him. It certainly hasn't been the President or this administration.» White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that US President Donald Trump was «furious» and «disgusted» over former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon's new book, speaking at a press conference in Washington DC on Wednesday. «I think furious, disgusted, would probably certainly fit when you make such outrageous claims and completely false claims against the President, his administration, and his family,» she said. In the book, titled 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' Bannon described a 2016 alleged meeting between Russian officials and Trump's son regarding Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton as «treasonous.» Trump immediately disavowed Bannon in a Tweet message saying that his former campaign strategist «not only lost his job, he lost his mind.» «I think that is a ridiculous accusation, said Sanders, adding, «I'd refer you back to the ones that he made previously on '60 Minutes,' where he called the collusion with Russia about this President a total farce. So I think I would look back at that. If anybody has been inconsistent, it's been him. It certainly hasn't been the President or this administration.» The discussion also touched upon Trump's previous tweet from Tuesday night where the President claimed to possess a «nuclear button» that was «bigger and more powerful» than the one owned by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. When a journalist asked if Trump's tweet showed lack of «mental fitness», Sanders insisted that it is Kim's «mental fitness» that should be a matter of concern. «I don't think that it's taunting to stand up for the people of this country. I think what's dangerous is to ignore the continued threats. If the previous administration had done anything and dealt with North Korea, dealt with Iran, instead of sitting by and doing nothing, we wouldn't have to clean up their mess now,» Sanders stated. She went on to say that if «the President can't respond aggressively to an individual like the leader of North Korea that continues to threaten Americans, then that's a dangerous place that we don't want to go down.»
