Sarah Sanders is asked during the White House press briefing about the comments made by President Trump the evening before, during a dinner photo with his top military advisers, “You guys know what this represents? Maybe it’s the calm before the storm. Could be the calm before the storm.”
She asks, “Can you clarify the President’s comments? Was he referring to military action when he said ‘calm before the storm?'”
Sanders replied, “As we’ve said many times before, I know the President has as I have from this podium on quite a few occasions, we’re never going to say in advance what the President’s going to do. And as he said last night, in addition to those comments, you’ll have to wait and see.”
She follows up, asking, “How serious should the American public or American adversaries, for that matter, take these comments? Was it a joke? Is it serious?”
Sanders responded, “I think you can take the President protecting the American people always extremely serious [sic]. He’ s been very clear that that’s his number one priority and if he feels that action is necessary he’ll take it.”
