Press secretary Sarah Sanders came out strong against charges that the recent naming of only one woman to fill 42 U.S. attorney vacancies was a slap in the face to women by the Trump administration.

Sanders cited her own postion as an example. “I think that the president has certainly surrounded himself with a lot of strong women in various positions,” Sanders replied, “including myself in a pretty high position and senior position in the administration, as well as [Communications Director] Hope Hicks, [Counselor] Kellyanne Conway, and a number of others.

Sanders defended Trump's postion at the White House presser on Wednesday, when Newsmax noted that the president recently appointed 42 new U.S. attorneys and that only one of them was a woman — the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

Sanders added that Trump is “continuing to add women to his staff at senior levels every single day, and I think that's a very positive step forward, considering — particularly on the communications side, this is the first time in history that's happened.”
