Huckabee Sanders Responds to Corker's 'Daycare' Critique: He's Entitled to 'Own Opinion,' Not 'Own Facts'

October 10, 2017

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Tuesday's press briefing that Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) is "entitled to his own opinion, but he's not entitled to his own facts."

Sanders was responding to a question regarding the senator's weekend comments. Corker referred to the White House as an "adult daycare center" on Twitter, and in an interview, said President Donald Trump's actions "concern" him, saying he feared the president was leading the world into World War III.

"Look, Sen. Corker is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but he is not entitled to his own facts," Sanders said.

"The fact is, this president has been an incredibly strong leader in foreign policy and national security," Sanders said. "And he’s been a leader on this front, and I think that’s been seen and demonstrated time and time again since he took office."

Sanders went on to list accomplishments he has had on the foreign policy and national security front thus far. She further touched on what he plans to do in the future to continue combating U.S. enemies and increase American power and influence.

"Again, Sen. Corker may have an opinion, but the facts certainly don’t lie," Sanders concluded. "The president has been very successful on this front."
