White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders recently responded to Joe Biden’s criticism of the White House as he campaigns in Iowa. On Tuesday, Sanders downplayed Biden’s speeches, which launched personal attacks on the president. She called him an “existential threat.”
The press secretary called it “truly laughable,” and said the Obama-Biden White House needs to answer for the threats it caused in regard to its foreign policy.
“The idea that he would say that the president poses any type of threat is truly laughable considering he was part of the administration that allowed Russia to interfere in our election,” she stated. “He was part of the administration that allowed Iran to continue to flourish — they gave $1.8 billion dollars to help fund Iran and their continued bad behavior.”
Sanders went on to say it’s Biden who has “a lot of explaining to do.” She also touched on the president’s “unprecedented success” in many areas, including “combating the problems particularly across the globe and on the foreign policy standpoint.”
The press secretary then stated she doesn’t know if the President Trump will address Biden’s remarks while in Iowa Tuesday.
