Sarah Sanders deflects when asked about Trump calling Democrats 'anti-Jewish'

"Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that", Sanders said, referring to the ongoing controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar for making allegedly anti-Semitic remarks.

In the roughly 15 minute conference, Sanders compared President Donald Trump's readiness to condemn neo-Nazis in Charlottesville with the Democrats' apparent reluctance to directly address the issue of anti-Semitism.

Two reporters followed up with Sanders in an attempt to get a more direct answer from her, but she again sidestepped the question, saying she would not "comment on leaked information" but arguing that when GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa made racist remarks earlier this year, he was unilaterally condemned by his party and ultimately stripped of his committee memberships.

At this meeting, according to what I've heard, Mick Mulvaney, acting White House chief of staff, urged the president to fire Acosta.

Trump's statement came after a resolution condemning anti-Semitism finally came to a vote on March 7, but only after Democrats broadened the resolution with portions condemning other kinds of hate, including "anti-Muslim bigotry".

Democrats in Congress, along with The New York Times and the Miami Herald, have called on Acosta to resign as labor secretary.

Is No Credit Better Than Having Bad Credit?
In fact, that’s the best possible use of credit — engaging it to do something that can help you make money. No Credit The good news about having no credit history is there’s nothing negative about you out there.

As for Acosta's present status in the Cabinet, Sanders simply said "I'm not aware of any personnel changes". "Isn't that kind of rhetoric just sort of beneath everybody?"

"Do you think that the president has thought, at all, going into the 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered?" the CNN White House correspondent asked.

The press secretary also said she was unaware of any plan for Xi and Trump to speak by phone. She added that "we're continuing negotiations with China".

Trump is going to make sure whatever deal the U.S. gets is in its best interest - that it's fair and reciprocal trade; that it protects intellectual property; and that it actually has safeguards to make sure that the Chinese follow through with whatever commitments that they make, Sanders said. When the final resolution passed the House, it did not mention Omar by name.

"Does he really believe Democrats hate Jews?"
