White House: Trump wishes no ‘ill will’ against Omar

White House: Trump wishes no ‘ill will’ against Omar

Appearing on ABC News' This Week, Sanders said the proposal was initially brought up at a staff level, where it was determined that "there were a lot of challenges and it didn't make sense to move forward" from a logistical standpoint, but Trump pushed for it to be explored further.

The president's press secretary was then pressed on the legality of the transfers, which she responded to by saying that President Trump "likes the idea" and that the White House was looking at "options that make it possible".

Trump broke with a decades-old precedent by refusing to release his returns as a presidential candidate in 2016 and continues to do so as president, saying his tax returns are under IRS audit.

The GOP governor-turned-senator appeared on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, where he cast some doubt on the president's proposal to relocate detained immigrants from the southern border with Mexico and to so-called sanctuary cities such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago that have policies against arresting illegal migrants exclusively for the objective of deportation. "If they don't want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?"

"I don't understand why the president's attracted to it at all", Stephanopoulos said.

After reports said the Trump administration had twice considered and rejected a plan to bus illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities to retaliate against his political foes, the president embraced the idea on Friday. "It actually could encourage more immigrants".

The White House appears to be anxious enough about Donald Trump's new baseline of erratic, lunacy-infused declarations this week to dispatch not one, but both of the administration's most practiced liars to blow smoke up the collective American behind.


"They do these watered down push-backs that, frankly, they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done", Sanders said.

Trump told reporters on March 8 that Democrats have now become "an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party" after Omar-a Somalia-born Muslim-sparked fresh criticism for questioning why US lawmakers support Israel.

Trump's controversial tweets over immigrants have drawn backfire from some sanctuary cities in the Bay Area.

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will and certainly not violence towards anyone, but the president is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time but history of anti-Semitic comments", Sanders told Stephanopoulos.

"In fact, we have always welcomed people who have faced tremendous hardships around the world". She later sought to defend herself by tweeting a quote from President George W. Bush, in which the Republican president referred to the attackers as "people" just days after 9-11.

The popular west coast USA city boss also noted that Trump "is demonizing immigrants and refugees to incite fear and to distract the American public from his own failures".
