The White House Deputy Press Secretary said that President Trump just wanted to keep the American people safe.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday at a press briefing that President Trump did not care about semantics surrounding “the travel ban” and that he just wanted to protect the United States.
“I don’t think the president cares what you call it, whether you call it a ban, whether you call it a restriction. He cares that we call it national security,” Sanders said.
“Everybody wants to get into the labels and the semantics of it, but the bottom line is he’s trying to protect the citizens of this country,” she continued.
Sanders defended the president’s legal right to enact the executive order.
Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted about “the travel ban,” emphasizing its need in the wake of terror attacks in the United Kingdom.
People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!
