Trump's "really diverse team" is mostly white

Trump's Trump's "really diverse team" is mostly white
Bennie Garza | 15 December, 2017, 06:11

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was over an hour late to Tuesday's press briefing, and when she finally appeared she did so with a guest speaker, the very ill-informed and unprepared Director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Lee Cissna. At one point, Sanders refused to allow Acosta to ask another question, sparking an uncomfortable exchange.

"As I said to @PressSec she may be able to burn in the kitchen but I won't be eating". He asked a question anyway, about a Trump tweet in which the president claimed New York Sen. "The system is clearly broken and clearly rigged for special interests, and this president is someone that can't be bought", the press secretary told reporters.

"NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson backed up Acosta and said: "@POTUS doesn't have to answer questions - but we can sure ask them". "Something that we strive for everyday is to add and grow to be more diverse and more representative of the country at-large and we're going to continue to do that". He also had a memorable back-and-forth with White House adviser Stephen Miller in early August.

Trump's tweet about Gillibrand, who called yesterday for the president's resignation, raised eyebrows for what some said was a sexual undertone. Trump targeted the only woman of the four who called on him to resign.

One big difference between the two is that Time Warner owns a cable news network that Trump believes is too critical (CNN), while 21st Century Fox owns one that he favors (Fox News).

"There's no way that this is sexist at all", Sanders said during Tuesday's press briefing.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Acosta's tweet.
