Donald Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders defended the president Sunday against accusations that he was inciting violence toward a Muslim congresswoman after he tweeted a video of her spliced with footage of the 9/11 attacks.
Reps. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on ABC and CNN, where they defended her comment and pushed back against Trump's tweet. "The president wants us to [consider it] again so that is being done and they're doing a complete and thorough review".
Rick Scott said Sunday that President Donald Trump's threat to place immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities might just be the President trying to "make everybody insane".
Furthermore, many such locations have more resources to help migrants make their legal cases to stay in the USA than smaller cities, with some of the nation's biggest immigration advocacy groups based in San Francisco, New York City and Chicago.
"If Democrats would step up and help the president fix the laws, this all could go away, we wouldn't be having this discussion, and that would be the best thing for the country and that would certainly be the best way to solve this crisis and fix this problem", Sanders told anchor George Stephanopoulos.
Trump threatened "placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only" earlier this week, while blaming the country's immigration laws on Democrats. In fact, Schaaf's administration strengthened Oakland's sanctuary policy in 2018 and had warned residents past year of an upcoming raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
While speaking to host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday", Sanders suggested that Democrats lacked the intelligence to understand Trump's filings from the past.

He also set the United States a deadline of "until the end of this year" to demonstrate that new talks could be more productive. Denuclearization talks, however, have been stalled since the breakdown of their second summit in Hanoi late February.
In a Saturday tweet, Trump suggested that his plan to send migrants and refugees to sanctuary cities would intimidate Democrats into changing their approach to United States immigration "fast".
On Sunday, White House officials sought to turn the focus on Democrats.
Scott later told Tapper bluntly, "sanctuary cities are illegal", saying Democrats can not cherry-pick which immigration laws they follow. "The president likes the idea, and ..."
After being rebuked last month, including by Democrats, she apologised and said she was "listening and learning". We don't want illegal immigration, we don't want people coming illegally across the border, " Scott said.
President Donald Trump's reelection campaign reportedly has raised over $30 million during the first quarter of 2019.
Cracking down on illegal immigration has been a central theme of the Trump presidency, and in his interview with NPR, Gidley said Trump is trying to make good on that promise through the sanctuary cities plan.
