Sarah Sanders Blasts Liberal Reporter Over Trump’s Response to Russian Trolls Interfering in 2016 Election (VIDEO)
On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders had a fiery exchange with ABC’s liberal reporter, Jonathan Karl over Trump’s response to Russian trolls interfering in the 2016 election.
The liberals had a feeding frenzy after Mueller indicted 13 Russians for interfering in the 2016 presidential election via social media.
The 37-page indictment was a big fat nothingburger but the liberals are now demanding Trump “do something about the Russians”.
Obama did nothing as the Russians set up shop in the U.S. in 2014 but this is somehow Trump’s fault.
“You just agreed that the evidence is there that the Russians interfered in our election, doesn’t he agree that the evidence is there?” Karl asked Sanders of Trump.
“What is the president going to do about it? What is he specifically doing about the fact that the Russia interfered with our election and has every intention, we are told of doing it again? What is he doing about it?” Karl asked.
Sarah Sanders explained Trump is tougher on Russian than Obama was.
“He has been tougher on Russia in his first year than Obama was in eight years combined. He has imposed sanctions, he’s taken away properties, he’s rebuilt our military. He has done a number of things to put pressure on Russia and be tough on Russia. Just last week there was an incident that will be reported in the coming days in an another way this president was tough on Russia.”

Sarah Sanders also blasted fake news reporters for conflating two facts-Russian interference and Trump colluding with the Russians to help them with their interference operation.
Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein even said in a press conference last week after Mueller indicted 13 Russians that their meddling had no impact on the outcome of the election and Trump’s camp did not collude with them.
