Huckabee Sanders on Debt Deal: That’s Why He’s the President, the People Wanted Somebody to Get Things Done
REPORTER: "Does the president care at all that Republican leadership is annoyed with this deal that he reached?"
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "I think that the president’s focus was what was doing — doing what was best for the American people. And that’s why he’s the president. The people wanted somebody to be a leader; they wanted somebody that was going to step up and take action and get things done, and that’s exactly what the president did. I think the last thing we want to do is play partisan politics when we have people in places like Texas and Louisiana that need financial support through the federal government. The president wanted to make sure that happened and that got taken care of and that’s what he did."
