Reporters, White House debate whether Trump can be trusted

Reporters, White House debate whether Trump can be trusted”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Friday conceded there may be a network of federal government employees resisting President Trump - the "deep state".

"From the White House's perspective, there's no question that there've been an abundance of reports regarding surveillance and other type activities that occurred during the 2016 election". "The president used the word "wiretapping" in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities", Spicer said Monday.

However, Spicer then says this: "Such a great country that allows you to be here".

"In all seriousness, I think [Trump's] view is, he made a pledge to the American people, he wants to donate it to charity, and he would love your help to determine where it should go", Spicer told the pool of reporters, according to The Hill. But Trump explicitly accused Obama of "tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election". Recognizing an opportunity, Shree asked the White House press secretary questions a lot of us have been wondering since first watching the spokesman bumble and rant his way through press briefing after press briefing, defending his boss's baseless claims and indefensible policies. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism", he wrote. "Stahl reminded the president-elect, "[That's] $400,000 you're giving up".

Asked if, when the president says something, it can be trusted to be real, Spicer replied: "If he's not joking, of course".

The 33-year-old, who works for a non-profit which helps families in the U.S. capital, said she has feared for her safety following Trump's election win in November. "This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"

"I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the President of the United States could clear this up in a minute", Mr McCain told NBC.

Both an Obama spokesperson and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have said on the record that there's nothing to Trump's claim.

It is vital journalists and the American people not let Trump slide on these allegations, or tweak them so they become true.

Man this administration reminds me of a movie I saw a while ago where a family completely forgot a kid at home and went on vacation and then hilarity ensued.
