Sarah Sanders Defends Trump from “Absurd” Claim He Doesn’t Read Briefings

Sarah Sanders, who is rumored to be strongly considering a run for Governor in Arkansas defended Trump from allegations that he does not read briefings.

Sanders characterized Trump’s appetite for consuming information as the exact opposite, saying “I’ve watched him consume massive amounts of information, process it quickly and make decisions. He reads more than anybody I know.”

USA Today reports former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders disputed the portrayal of President Donald Trump by the anonymous purported Trump official in the book “A Warning,” calling the person a “total coward” and saying it doesn’t sound like “somebody who spent real time with the president.”

The book describes Trump as volatile and unfocused, but Sanders said, “you can’t spend that kind of time with him and have that takeaway.”

Sanders made the comments Sunday during an appearance on the Fox News program “The Next Revolution With Steve Hilton.” She described the president as someone who is decisive and can quickly sort through large amounts of data. And she said the widely reported idea that the president needs his briefings to be simplified is “absurd.”

“I’ve watched him consume massive amounts of information, process it quickly and make decisions,” she said. “He reads more than anybody I know. Every single foreign trip we actually would laugh about the fact he has boxes upon boxes, file boxes where he reads for hours. The rest of us want to take a break, we wanna sleep, the president works the entire time.”
