Press Access to President Trump George Washington University held a panel discussion on press access to the Trump administration featuring White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and a number of members of the White House press corps. Ms. Sanders talked about how she approaches her job as press secretary, including some of the frustrations she and the administration have with what they feel is unfair media coverage. Ms. Sanders was asked about Chief of Staff John Kelly’s comments the previous week in the White House press briefing room in which he accused Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) of taking credit for funding an FBI building at a dedication ceremony in 2015. Video later released of the congresswoman’s remarks show that she did not take credit or claim to have gotten money to fund the building. In response to a question as to whether Mr. Kelly would apologize to the congresswoman, Ms. Sanders said, “I don’t think that General Kelly was wrong, and therefore, I don’t think he should offer an apology.” close
