Sarah H. Sanders Defends Trump’s Retweeting Of Anti-Muslim Videos

Sanders claims Trump retweeted the horrific videos because he was making an argument in favor of ‘border security.'

In the wake of condemnations surrounding President Donald Trump's Wednesday morning retweets showing violent and anti-Christian acts by purported Muslims, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to justify those tweets - two of which have been discredited - by essentially stating that Muslims are a threat to the United States.

The first video is of an incident several years ago. The assailant was arrested, tried, convicted, and executed, according to the Daily Mirror. The third video has been proven to be neither of a Muslim or a migrant. In other words, the president is retweeting intentionally fake news.

Sanders, defending a president who regularly accuses the media of propagating "fake news", told the press:

"Whether it's a real video, the threat is real," Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. "His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security."
