Sarah Huckabee Sanders: No Mixed Messages From Trump on Clintons

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump has never sent mixed messages on the "improper actions" former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been involved in, and he's "just looking for a fair playing field on that front," newly appointed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.

"I think he is getting hit every single day on a ridiculous witch hunt that have proved nothing," Sanders told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"There are actually some real, I think, hard facts to look at when it comes to the Clintons, and that's been completely ignored. I think the president is just looking for a fair playing field on that front."

Early Tuesday, Trump continued his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions through Twitter, accusing him of taking a "very weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes" and intelligence leakers.

Trump also on Monday called Sessions "beleaguered," and Sanders said Trump has been frustrated by Sessions' recusing himself from the Russia investigation, and "that frustration certainly hasn't gone away."

"I don't think it will," she conceded, "given the fact that the president is being attacked unnecessarily and certainly for no reason on something that I think he and America feel is a complete hoax."

The media, she continued, has gotten caught up in "Russia fever," but the Trump administration is looking to move on.

"It makes it hard when every single day the media spends 15 times as much time talking about Russia as they do the issues that Americans care about," Sanders said.

"There was a poll in The Wall Street Journal just last week that said the top three issues that Americans care about are healthcare, immigration, and jobs. The top three issues that the press covers is Russia, Russia, and more Russia."

Meanwhile, she said, Sessions, nor anybody from the Trump campaign should have a conflict when it comes to the Russia investigation, as "every member of the campaign as well as the president have been very clear that there was no inappropriate action and certainly in collusion of any kind."

She also would not comment on reports that Trump is considering former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to replace Sessions.

"Right now, Attorney General Sessions is the attorney general, and I haven't been part of any conversations discussing potential replacements, so I can't comment on that," said Sanders.

Meanwhile, Sanders said she hopes Republicans will have enough votes today on repealing Obamacare, as they have been talking about doing so for the last seven years.

"We have a decision to make whether we want to have a patient-centered healthcare focus or whether we want the Democrats, who have now admitted within the last few days that Obamacare needs to be replaced, but they want to replace it with a single-payer system," said Sanders.

Single-payer would be the largest government expansion in decades and a "massive mistake," said Sanders.

"The government has enough problems," she said. "I don't think that we want Democrats forcing government to take over more of our healthcare system."
