On ‘The View,’ former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Trump in the wake of a damaging article in “The Atlantic.”
The article reported that he called fallen veterans “losers” and “suckers.” Trump has denied he made these remarks and Sanders does as well, saying that she was in the room when it reportedly happened.
Co-host Meghan McCain confronted Sanders over the president’s treatment of the military, saying, “I know for me and my brothers who serve, we do not feel respected. We are a military family that does not feel respected or appreciated by this president.”
Sanders parried McCain’s comments but conceded that Trump and McCain’s father, the late John McCain, did not get along.
“There’s no denying the fact that not only did Donald Trump dislike your father, your father disliked the president and they had some very heated exchanges,” Sanders said, to which McCain agreed.
