WH Press Sec: We Are Putting The Safety Of Americans First

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that President Trump’s executive action to restrict people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States is “put[ting] the safety of Americans first.”

A reporter asked Spicer about a former official of the Obama administration, from Homeland Security, that said what the Trump administration is doing is very different from what the Obama administration with regards to these countries.

“Okay well, we’re going to put the safety of Americans first. We’re not going to wait and react, as I said in the statement. The president is going to be very proactive with protecting this country,” Spicer informed the reporter. “We’re not going to wait until we get attacked and figure out how we can make sure it doesn’t happen again. He’s going to do everything in his power to stop every threat that we face in this country, and every potential threat, and that’s the key point in this.”

“He’s [President Trump] made sure that every way possible we get down the path of securing this country, and putting America’s safety and security first and foremost bar none,” Spicer concluded.
