White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday defended a pair of tweets from President Trump that contained unfounded claims about mail-in voting and said the president aimed to always be truthful.
Reporters asked McEnany several times during Thursday’s White House briefing about the tweets posted earlier this week that earned Trump his first fact check from Twitter.
The warning labels on the president’s tweets have drawn considerable ire from the White House and its conservative allies.
“Are you saying that [Trump] has never lied to the public before?” a reporter asked McEnany.
“His intent is always to give truthful information to American people,” the press secretary replied.
McEnany also went on the offensive during the briefing, saying that “no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media.”
