'Nothing has changed' between Donald Trump and Rex Tillerson: White House

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders points as she begins to take questions from the media during the daily briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House Thursday Oct. 5 2017

"Look, I think that the president is the one that's keeping the world from chaos", Huckabee Sanders said.

During a White House news briefing on Thursday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders indicated that President Trump sees no meaningful distinction between erroneous news reports and the sort of intentional disinformation Russian bots used to aid his presidential bid. "He's got an incredible team around him that's helping him lead that effort, and he's had tremendous accomplishments on the global stage by working with allies and confronting enemies". The State Department denied that Tillerson made such comments.

Rubio asks Army to kick out West Point grad MORE is on the way out on Friday, maintaining that President Trump continues to have confidence in Tillerson.

Just days after the "Access Hollywood" tape was released, Sanders was interviewed by MSNBC's Craig Melvin, and after several minutes of happily flacking for Trump, was asked to explain how she could possibly represent such a reprehensible figure.

"We're never going to say in advance what the president's going to do", Sanders said, adding: "You'll have to wait and see".




Reporters asked if the storm was related to Iran or ISIS.

Trump's "apology" was similar in character, minimizing what he had done, while turning the entire exercise into an excuse to attack Hillary Clinton, and not apologizing for the million other things he'd said and done.

"I think the premise of that question is absolutely ridiculous".

Tension between Trump and Tillerson resurfaced over the weekend when the secretary of state said during a trip to China that the USA was in direct communication with North Korea, which has ramped up its nuclear device and missile testing in recent months.

One reporter at the White House briefing questioned whether leaving an unclarified statement out there might be counterproductive if the president is as bent on not tipping his hand in worldwide affairs as he says.
