Trump’s Press Secretary Urges People To Stop Making Fun Of Donald Trump
Sean Spicer, press secretary for President Elect Donald Trump, has requested that Americans come together and show support for the soon to be president and stop mocking him.
This all went down on national television when Spicer was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC. He was talking to comments regarding Trump taking the credit for things that came about before his involvement. Spicer complained that the people of America are undermining and mocking the president-elect, “So the idea is everyone wants to talk about the tweets he sent. But I would actually focus on the action he’s getting. Donald Trump is not president yet and he’s getting action, successes and wins, both abroad and here at home.”
“Everything he does right now, he gets — he speaks for the head of Sprint, gets 5,000 jobs moved from abroad. And everyone starts to mock him. Oh, those jobs were already announced. They weren’t. The sales jobs have been a previous announce. These jobs were coming from abroad to America. And instead of trying to mock him or undermine him, it’s time that people started to give him credit for actually getting things done.”
Trump is being mocked because despite not achieving anything substantial yet, he insists on taking credit for things that have already been accomplished by others. A classic example is November’s positive economic data which he happily takes credit for, despite the fact that he is not yet in office. He is also trying to take the credit for the Carrier deal, negotiated by Mike Pence as well as the Sprint job announcement which he essentially was not involved in.
Before pleading with the American people to stop mocking the president-elect, Spicer was questioned on Trump’s relationship with Putin and Russia’s role in the DNC hack. After the plea to support Trump, White House correspondent Jonathan Karl continued to interrogate Spicer. He went back onto the topic of Russia for a while and then onto Trump’s new administration before grilling Spicer regarding Trump’s use of Twitter.
