White House press secretary Sarah Hucakbee Sanders on Monday attempted to explain the meaning of one of President Trump’s tweets last week in which he complained that sanctuary cities are “crime infested & breeding concept.”
“There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.
The tweet received renewed attention on Monday, which was the first press briefing since it was sent while the president was in Florida.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked Sanders if the president was making a derogatory comment about Latinos in California.
“No, he’s talking about the problem itself growing and getting bigger,” Sanders responded.
