White House Communications Adviser Mercedes Schlapp on Monday said Democrats who are accusing President Donald Trump of setting a divisive tone in the wake of the weekend synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh are being "outrageous."
"You have these Democrats, and some members of the media, who are the ones being dividing, who are the ones demonizing this president – who's the one who's putting the blame on the President for the acts of these sick and deranged individuals," Schlapp told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
Such statements, on the part of Democrats are "irresponsible."
"This is a moment of unity for our country and the Democrats continuously overplay their hand when they keep putting the blame and trying to demonize President Trump," said Schlapp.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday told CNN's Jake Tapper that Trump's "whole political strategy is about division," and that creates a "climate that's just sulferous."
"The president has called for unity, and I think that's the strong message that we want to be able to share with the American people at this time," Schlapp told Fox News in response. "I think that the Democrats overreach and some of those members in the media who also want to put the complete blame on the president, it's simply outrageous. This is a moment in time where you have a community that is suffering."
