Reports Erupt In Anger, Yell At Trump And Sanders For Running Away Without Taking Questions During Promised Briefing





After a brief appearance in the White House briefing room and some remarks on border security, the president and his press secretary left without answering a single question from the press.

Trump made a push for his long-promised border wall during the impromptu briefing as he stood alongside Border Patrol agents.

The president claimed to know more about drone technology than any person as he concluded his remarks: “Without a wall, you cannot have border security. It won’t work….Having a drone fly overhead and I think nobody knows much more about technology, this type of [drone] technology, certainly than I do. Having drones and various other form of sensors, they’re all fine but they’re not gonna stop the problems this country has.

As Trump and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders left the podium and walked out toward the door, a reporter shouts: “Sarah, are you coming back? Are you not taking any questions at all?”




A second reporter shouts: “The point of the briefing room is to take questions.”

As CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter noted, the anger seems to be directed at Sander’s for falsely promising to hold a “briefing.”

“The @PressSec announced a ‘briefing,’ but did not hold one,” Stelter wrote.




Shortly after the “briefing,” CNN’s White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins tweeted: “It’s not a press briefing if you don’t take questions.”
