Sanders said that Pruitt "has done a good job of implementing the president's policies, particularly on deregulation, making the United States less energy dependent, and becoming more energy independent", which she says "are good things". "Denuclearization. What does that mean to the president, and what do you think that means to the North Koreans?"

It was bad enough that Trump falsely claimed that North Korea had promised to "denuclearize" ahead of the upcoming summit.

"The Trump Administration is committed to enforcing our immigration laws - whether persons are part of this "caravan" or not". "We're continuing to cooperate with them, turned over almost - over a million pages in documents to the special counsel, and have been cooperative". "That's all at the direction and because of the relationship that the president has built with President Xi of China", she said.
