White House: Take Trump's priorities seriously, not his comments

When asked by one reporter if the president meant military action by the remark, Sanders was vague and stated that the president doesn't like to tip his hand.

"Right now our focus, as we've said over the past couple of days, has been on healing and uniting the country", Sanders said.

After a dinner meeting with his generals and their spouses, Trump had reporters come in for a quick comment, telling them, "maybe it's the calm before the storm".

Asked if the deadliest shooting in modern United States history had prompted Mr Trump to consider tighter gun controls, Ms Sanders said: "Now is the time to unite as a country".

President Donald Trump applauded the House passing its plan today, with the White House releasing a statement today that said the move was a "key step" in setting the stage for lawmakers to "fix our rigged and burdensome tax code", among other things.

Huckabee Sanders said that there was more to be done in the investigation of the Vegas shooting, and the administration wants to continue to be part of the conversation.

"We are certainly open to that moving forward", she said.

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

However, stories are still doing the rounds that Trump and Tillerson's relationship has been damaged beyond fix due to clashes over Iran and North Korea policy.

A senior administration official said on Thursday that Trump was expected to announce soon he would decertify the landmark agreement.

Sarah, if you ever do get to meet God face to face, I'm pretty sure she'll tell you that lying about Benghazi is also worse than calling racists "deplorable".
