Last quote by Sarah Huckabee Sanders

He had already made that decision. He'd been thinking about it for months, which I did say yesterday and have said many times since. … the recommendation I guess he got from the deputy attorney general just further solidified his decision and, again, I think, reaffirmed that he made the right one. We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity. And we think that we've actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders quotes

I think we were absolutely given the information that we could have at that time. It was a quick-moving process. We took the information we had as best we have it and got it out to the American people as quickly as we could. Our story is consistent. He did have a conversation with the deputy attorney general on Monday where they had come to him to express their concerns. The president asked that they put those concerns and their recommendation in writing, which is the letter that you guys have received.feedback

People in the Justice Department made a very strong recommendation, the president followed it and he made a quick and decisive action to fire James Comey. He took the recommendation seriously. And he made a decision based on that. No. He had already made that decision. He'd been thinking about it for months, which I did say yesterday and have said many times since. ... the recommendation I guess he got from the deputy attorney general just further solidified his decision and, again, I think, reaffirmed that he made the right one.feedback

We had an official photographer in the room, as did they.feedback

Frankly, he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected.feedback

The president will be meeting with Acting Director [Andrew] McCabe later today to discuss that very thing – the morale at the FBI – as well as make an offer to go directly to the FBI if he feels that that's necessary and appropriate.feedback

I think that Director Comey has shown over the last several months and, frankly, the last year, a lot of missteps and mistakes. As you've seen from many of the comments from Democrat members . . . they thought he should be gone. Frankly, I think it's startling that Democrats aren't celebrating this, since they've been calling for it for so long.feedback

How could he have, considering the fact that most of the people declaring war today were the very ones that were begging for Director Comey to be fired?feedback

Any investigation that was taking place on Monday is still taking place today.feedback

We don't believe this to be an accurate account. The integrity of our law enforcement agencies and their leadership is of the utmost importance to President Trump. He would never even suggest the expectation of personal loyalty, only loyalty to our country and its great people.feedback

I don't see it as a conflict of interest and neither do many of the legal scholars who've been commenting on it over the last hour.feedback

Proper protocol was followed in this procedure.feedback

The rank and file of the FBI had lost confidence in their director.feedback

Frankly, he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. Nobody wants this to be finished and completed more than us.feedback

I think it has been an erosion of confidence.feedback

No, the president had lost … confidence in Director Comey and frankly he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. How could he have, considering the fact that most of the people declaring war today were the very ones that were begging for Director Comey to be fired?feedback

Trump "had been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. The president was wearing a different hat. The circumstances change when you become the president.feedback

Frankly, it's kind of getting absurd. There's nothing there. We've heard that time and time again.feedback

Let's put it behind us, let's move on and let's focus on what we need to do to turn our country around.feedback

Not that I'm aware of and I think that would be a better question for the Department of Justice. Frankly, he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since he was elected ... I think it's been an erosion of confidence.feedback

Frankly, if that's going to continue, it's going to continue whether Jim Comey is there or not.feedback

I think the bigger point on that is, when are they going to let that go? It's been going on for nearly a year. Frankly, it's kind of getting absurd. There's nothing there.feedback

He's simply retiring from public service. He spent 30 years in public service and 10 in the private sector.feedback

The bottom line is the president is the president no matter where he goes. And he doesn't get to control the level of costs in security that may come along with that.feedback

The president, over the last several months, lost confidence in Director Comey. The DOJ lost confidence in Director Comey. Bipartisan members of Congress made it clear that they had lost confidence in Director Comey. And, most importantly, the rank-and-file of the FBI had lost confidence in their director.feedback

The president was complimenting a foreign leader on the operations of their healthcare system. It didn't mean anything more than that. I think he believes that they have a good healthcare system for Australia. What works in Australia may not work in the United States.feedback

We left on very good terms and wish her the very best and certainly hope for great things for her in the future.feedback

The president has made very clear that the opioid epidemic in this country is a huge priority for him.feedback

Unlike his predecessor who abused executive authority to expand the size and scope of the federal government in an end run around Congress, President Trump is using his legal authority to restrain Washington bureaucrats.feedback

The president has been pretty clear about where he is on releasing his tax returns. People knew that before they voted in November, and he still won overwhelmingly. The American people are a lot more concerned about their own taxes than President Trump's, and that's what he's focused on.feedback

The president's number one job is to keep Americans safe. And if he needs to work with countries like Turkey and others to do that, that's his priority and what his focus is.feedback

I wouldn't use the word referendum. I think he hopes to have a Republican elected.feedback

Look, the Middle East is a pretty rough neighborhood, and sometimes you have to get together to help them beat the bullies, like Syria. And that was something that certainly needed to be talked about. I think the president's number-one job is to keep Americans safe. That is his priority. That has been the focal point during the campaign as well as since he took office. And if he needs to work with countries like Turkey and others to do that, I think that's his priority, and that's what his focus is.feedback

We are focused on dealing with the problems keeping Americans up at night, not the overblown palace intrigue stories the media is obsessed with.feedback

Once again this is completely false story driven by people who want to distract from the success taking place in this administration.feedback

There are many serious issues at hand, which the president has been totally focused on, and the only conflicts his advisers are concerned with are those that are impacting the lives and safety of Americans, as well as the citizens of the world.feedback

I've spent a pretty good deal of time around him, and he has been nothing but respectful and deferential.feedback

There are a lot of 25-year-olds in the White House. Are you going to be writing about all of them?feedback

We're open to changes that help make the bill better.feedback

We do not feel it's appropriate to comment on someone who is not an employee at the White House.feedback

The fact that he has spent more time in states he won is just understanding basic math.feedback

He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer.feedback

No, I don't think he does. He is asking that it be done through the House Intelligence Committee, and that that be the process that we go through.feedback

Look, I haven't had the chance to have the conversation directly with the president, and he's at a much higher classification than I am, so he may have access to documents that I don't know about, but I do know that we take this very seriously.feedback

Look, the president firmly believes that the Obama administration may have tapped into the phones at Trump Tower. This is something that we should look into. We'd like to know for sure.feedback

As Sean has said on the record since January, we would conduct a daily briefing of some sort – some on camera, some off – and we have done just that.feedback

If the president walked across the Potomac, the media would be reporting that he could not swim.feedback

You know, I don't think he does. I think he firmly believes that this is a storyline that has been reported pretty widely by quite a few outlets. Frankly, George, I think if the president walked across the Potomac, the media would report he can't swim. This is a constant battle we're having to fight. All we're asking is that the double standard be washed away and we allow the Congressional committee to do their job.feedback

The New York Times, BBC, have also talked about and reported on the potential of this having had happened. I think the bigger thing is, Let's find out. Let's have an investigation.' If they're going to investigate Russia ties, let's include this as part of it.feedback

Not at all. He's asking that we allow the House Intelligence Committee to do its job. … It's very interesting, George, how when this past president says it's false, everybody's like: 'Oh, well, obviously it is.' But when we've been saying it for the last six months, nobody believes it. Frankly, George, I think if the president walked across the Potomac, the media would report that he can't swim. This is a constant battle that we're having to fight. All we're asking is that the double-standard be washed away.feedback

The fact that it was being done is a story that we should be talking about, George.feedback

The president wants the truth to come out to the American people, and he is asking that it be done through the House Intelligence Committee and that that be the process that we go through.feedback

I don't know that he has talked directly with the FBI director.feedback

You know, I don't think he does, George. I think he firmly believes that this is a story line that has been reported pretty widely by quite a few outlets. The wiretapping has been discussed in the New York Times, BBC, Fox News, and we believe that it should be looked at by the House Intelligence Committee.feedback

It does back up the fact that the administration was wiretapping American citizens. There was wide reporting suggesting that his administration – whether it was directly ordered by this president, specifically – his administration could have done this.feedback

I think the president firmly believes it did [happen].feedback

He may have access to documents that I don't know about.feedback

Everybody acts like President Trump is the one that came up with this idea and just threw it out there. There are multiple news outlets that have reported this. And all we're asking is that we get the same level of look into the Obama administration and the potential that they had for a complete abuse of power that they've been claiming that we have done over the last six months.feedback

He's talking about could this have happened? Did this happen?feedback

This is a story line that has been reported pretty widely by quite a few outlets. The wiretapping has been discussed in The New York Times, BBC, Fox News.feedback

No, I don't think he does. He is asking that it be done through the House Intelligence Committee, and that that be the process that we go through. The president firmly believes that the Obama administration may have tapped into the phones at Trump Tower and that this is something that we should look into. We'd like to know for sure. The media has been extremely dismissive of this reporting and this potential story while all the while being very happy to jump on all of the false attacks that have been launched at this president over the last six months.feedback

All we're asking for is a fair and same look at this potential story and to let the House Intelligence Committee do their job. He's at a much higher classification than I am, so he may have access to documents that I don't know about. But I do know that we take this very seriously and we think it should be thoroughly reviewed and investigated and we're asking Congress to do their job.feedback

If they're going to investigate Russia ties, let's include this as part of it. That's what we're asking.feedback

The president believes that Jeff Sessions is a good man and that he didn't do anything wrong.feedback

The American people have a right to know if this took place.feedback

All we're saying is, let's take a closer look. Let's look into this. If this happened, if this is accurate, this is the biggest overreach and the biggest scandal.feedback

If this happened, once again this would be the greatest abuse of power and overreach.feedback

The big point here is the president himself knows what his involvement was, and that's zero.feedback

Please explain to me how volunteers meeting at a conference where nearly 80 ambassadors attended is a story. I guess it's kind of lost on me where that would be newsworthy in any capacity. I mean, Chuck Schumer sitting and having drinks with Putin and that's not a news story, but apparently a volunteer for a campaign bumping into one at a conference where there's again dozens of other ambassadors is newsworthy.feedback

Lt. Gen. McMaster has served alongside women, and benefited from their bravery and dedication, his entire career. As a commander he has been a leader in sexual assault prevention in each of his commands. To suggest otherwise is to unfairly impugn the character and integrity of a true American hero.feedback

General Sessions met with the ambassador in an official capacity as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which is entirely consistent with his testimony. It's no surprise Senator Al Franken is pushing this story immediately following President Trump's successful address to the nation.feedback

I wasn't saying that he shouldn't recuse himself or that he should.feedback

I haven't had the chance to speak with him directly about that, but I would imagine that he would be supportive of that.feedback

So we're looking at every possible way to do exactly that: repeal a terrible, failed system and replace with something better.feedback

He was talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general – not referring to a specific incident.feedback
