USA: White House refuses to condemn aide's McCain remark

Journalist: «Are you saying that she didn't say this?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «Again, I'm not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* Journalist: «Why not just apologise to Senator McCain? Wouldn't that be easier?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «Again, I'm not going to... Еще get into a back and forth because you know people want to create issues of leaked staffed meetings.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to comment on a staffer's allegedly derogatory remark about Senator John McCain's health, at a press briefing in Washington D.C. on Friday. Communications aide Kelly Sadler had reportedly said during a closed-door meeting that Arizona Senator John McCain's opinion on US President Donald Trump's CIA nominee «doesn't matter» because «he's dying anyway.» During the briefing, Sanders said she was «not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other,» adding, «You know people want to create issues of leaked staffed meetings.» Commenting on Trump's June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, the White House spokesperson said the most desirable outcome from the meeting would be a «total denuclearisation» of the Korean Peninsula.
