Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing today after returning late last night from President Trump’s rally in Tennessee.
There were many reporter questions today regarding the canceled summit with North Korea as well as Roseanne Barr’s recent Twitter comments.
Sarah let the reporters know that the Trump administration has nothing to do with Roseanne Barr or ABC so there would be no comment from the White House on that.
She also let them know that the White House is proceeding as if the June summit with North Korea is happening just in case there is another change where Trump decides it is appropriate to meet with Kim Jong un.
Sarah was surprised to see a very young child in the back row of the press briefing with his hand held high in the air.
Benje Choucroun was reporting for “TIME for kids” at the press briefing and had some tough questions for the president.
“We recently had a lock down. One thing that affects mine and other students’ mental health is the worry that we or our friends could get shot at school. Specifically, can you tell me what the administration has done or will do about these senseless tragedies?”
Sarah paused briefly before her answer.
“I think that as a kid, and certainly as a parent, there is nothing that could be more terrifying for a kid to go to school and not feel safe. So, I’m sorry that you feel that way.”
This is where Sarah starts to break down as she is likely thinking about her own children heading off to school each day and their safety along with their classmates’.
“We take this seriously and the school safety commission that the president convened is meeting this week again in an official meeting to discuss the best ways forward and how we can do every single thing in our power to protect kids in our schools and to make them feel safe and make their parents feel good about dropping them off.”
Sarah is the mother to three young children of her own and we can know that this answer came directly from her heart as a mother herself.
