We're very committed to a free press. And I think that we demonstrate that every single day, not only... Еще by me being up here and taking your questions as I'm doing right now. The president did it just a couple of hours ago and has made multiple sets of remarks, and will be in front of the press later tonight as well.» SOT, journalist (English): «How is the suggestion of taking American journalists' press credentials away advocating for a free press in this country? Those two do not go together.» SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «The fact that I'm standing here taking questions, the fact that the President took questions from your colleagues just two hours ago demonstrates this White House's commitment to accessibility and to providing information to the American public.

And that's — until we see that happen, we're going to continue to put maximum pressure, enormous sanctions on them. All of the sanctions that were in place before the deal are back in place, and we are preparing to add additional sanctions that may come as early as next week.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lashed out at a journalist at her daily press briefing in the White House on Wednesday, after repeated questioning about a tweet posted by US President Donald Trump's in which he threatened to take away journalists' credentials for publishing so-called fake news. «I'm standing up in front of you right now taking your questions.
