Raw Story reports:
Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held an off-camera press briefing on Friday, saying that the press office doesn’t want to overshadow an announcement of a new executive order by President Donald Trump.
However, in her short 16-minute appearance off-camera, Sanders managed to blame the people of Chicago for the city’s high crime rate, saying “morality” is the issue, not poverty or ready access to firearms.
“I think that the problem there is pretty clear that it’s a crime problem,” said Huckabee Sanders. “I think that crime is driven more by a morality than anything else so I think that this is a law enforcement issue and our focus is trying to add additional support.”
