White House Says Donald Trump Joked About Police Roughing Up Suspects
A White House spokesperson is now claiming Donald Trump was joking when he told a officers from the Suffolk County Police Department to rough up suspects while arresting them.
In case you missed the deplorable moment:
"I believe he was making
a joke at the time," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters when asked if Trump had a response to the critiques.
Before Sanders' comments White House officials had declined to say if they had a response to multiple police departments criticizing Trump's law-and-order speech in New York.
