Asked if the president would apologize for allegedly defamation of 18-year-old in a campaign video released last year, Psaki danced around the issue – briefly changing the subject to former President Donald Trump – but ultimately hinted that there would be no excuse.
“Well, let’s go clear what we are talking about here: it is about a campaign video released last year who used President Trump’s own words during a debate as he refused to condemn white supremacists and militia groups, “ Psaki said, going on denounce Trump for presumably encouraging “Militia groups” during his term in office.
