White House denies FISA confusion

White House denies FISA confusion

Acosta noted that Trump began the day by tweeting a quote from a Fox News segment that conflicted with the administration's view on FISA warrants, which necessitated the president sending out a subsequent tweet clarifying his actual position. Her response prompted a back-and-forth between the two over whether a "physical" border wall will be part of any potential immigration deal, and she stated that she believes many Democrats are also committed to border security.

The White House defended Trump's remarks in a statement and did not deny them.

At today's White House briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say if Donald Trump will appoint a new Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, after firing all its members over the holidays.

The internet is in strong knee-jerk reaction mode to comments that, as of right now, President Donald Trump only allegedly said.

Sanders said Trump was simply expressing some of the broader concerns he has about the FISA surveillance system and she rejected suggestions that the President's initial tweet set off an effort to correct the record and reassure Republicans on Capitol Hill.

"I think the premise of your question is completely ridiculous and shows the lack of knowledge that you have on this process", Sanders retorted, adding that the president's tweet "wasn't confusing to me. I can see some lying going on regarding report from White House come Tuesday", one tweet read.

Acosta has always been pegged as one of Trump's least favorite journalists at his least favorite network.

Sanders insisted that it includes technology and a "number of things", much of which she claimed was discussed during the president's meeting that the press attended.
