People should pray every day, principal deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday when asked about a photo of faith leaders praying with President Donald Trump earlier this week.
The photo was circulated earlier Wednesday and drew criticism, with some saying it insinuated that people were praying for the president because he is embroiled in the Russia saga.
Sanders said that was not true.
"The idea that somebody would only pray when they're in crisis I think makes you miss the entire point of what prayer is about. You should do that every day," she said during the White House press briefing. "You can do that in the best of times and the worst of times. It would be ridiculous to suggest to do that in a time of crisis."
Sanders added that the photo was taken during a meeting with "the Faith Advisory Board. They meet from time to time to speak about important issues to that community."
