Sarah Sanders took the White House podium for the first time in 2018 on Tuesday and there was plenty of news to talk about.
First on the list: the protests in Iran. In her remarks, Sanders wasted no time criticizing the Iranian regime. When asked what is President Trump’s “end game” in Iran, Sanders said she thinks “the people of Iran are actually given basic human rights, and [Trump] would certainly like to see them stop being a state sponsor of terror.”
She added, “I think that’s what the whole world would like to see.”
The White House press secretary was then asked if Trump’s support of the protesters may cause a “backlash against them by the Iranian government.”
