Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Trump Has Done More For Bipartisanship Than Obama
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Wednesday that President Donald Trump has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than former President Barack Obama did during his eight years in office.
Sanders was referring to the president striking a deal with Democratic leadership last week to keep the government funded and raise the debt ceiling, a move that reportedly left members of his own party furious. On Wednesday evening, Trump planned to have dinner with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) . He did not invite Republican congressional leaders. Despite Sanders’ claim, recent polls have shown that American voters believe the president is fueling divisiveness. In June, a Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey found that 59 percent of likely voters believe America has become more divided during the Trump presidency. Last month, a national poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found that 62 percent of voters believe Trump is doing more to drive divisiveness among Americans.
