It is an "absolute embarrassment" that members of Congress are using their time to attack President Donald Trump rather than trying to solve the nation's problems, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday.
"They should follow his example of coming to work every day and looking for how they can help the American people, not how they can attack this president," Sanders told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "It is absolutely outrageous that their number one job and their number one priority is to try to beat every person that is supportive of this president, beat them down and attack them."
Sanders also rejected an argument by House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler, after the New York Democrat's push for documents from dozens of people and entities involved with Trump, justifying the probe because there had not been oversight for the first two years of the administration. Sanders was not included on the list.
"What Chairman Nadler is missing that the first two years were not about oversight," said Sanders. "They were about success."
Meanwhile, Democrats continue to refuse to acknowledge that there is a border crisis, said Sanders, even though numbers of migrants crossing illegally hit record numbers for February.
"We know this is a crisis, not just of national security but a humanitarian crisis," said Sanders. "There is a 54 percent increase in unaccompanied children coming across this border. We're seeing the most vulnerable individuals exploited by our broken system. It is time that somebody steps up and follow the president and fix this problem."
