White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an interview published Wednesday that she was troubled that some Americans might think she misleads the media.

"It certainly bothers me," Sanders told The New York Times of being accused of lying to the press. "Because one of the few things you have are your integrity and reputation.

"There's a difference," she added, "between misspeaking or not knowing something than maliciously lying."

Sanders, 35, the daughter of former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee, has come under fire from journalists for not providing accurate information about developments in the Trump White House.

She told the Times that she only provides the information she is given and they may become outdated or inaccurate quickly because of changes in the White House.

"What's true on Monday in terms of a process decision may change by Friday," Sanders said. "And I can't always know that things will be different.

"I will always do everything I can to give the best and most accurate information at the time that I can."

Regarding Trump, Sanders told the Times that "one of the biggest reasons Donald Trump is president is because he is not scripted, not following your conventional playbook."

She called the president "the ultimate disrupter," adding that people find his direct style "refreshing.

Trump, Sanders said, "tells it like it is."
