Sanders added that she's not sure whether Trump knows of Hill's tweets.

Trump tweeted 7:20 a.m. Friday morning, September 15, that the network should "Apologize for untruth!" after bashing it for its politics and "bad programming". At the daily briefing Wednesday (Sept. 13), Sanders was asked about the Tweet and said the statement was "one of the most outrageous comments anyone could make".

Whether or not there are facts to back Hill's statement up, calling the President of the United States a "White supremacist" and the most "ignorant" president of your lifetime can easily be seen as personal attacks against the President of the United States.

That majority has likely grown larger after Donald Trump defended some of the marchers in last month's white supremacist rally turned violent in Charlottesville.

President Donald Trump demanded an apology this morning from ESPN for broadcaster Jemele Hill's claim that he's a white supremacist. "Well, it's a threat to me".

ESPN called Hill's Twitter tirade "inappropriate", but declined to discuss disciplinary action in a statement on Monday. The president also called for an apology.

Hill has expressed regret for painting ESPN in "an unfair light" with her personal comments, but has remained on the air.

"I do", she said, "and I think they laid that out themselves by suspending one of their anchors for political comments".

Hill was engaged in a social media discussion about Kid Rock and politics when the thread turned to Trump.

If the press secretary had explained why she believes Hill is mistaken, no problem.

When asked why prominent African-Americans were criticizing Trump, Sanders said she couldn't speak for Hill and said the president has met with respected African-American leaders like U.S. Sen.

David Clarke, former sheriff of Milwaukee County, joined "Fox & Friends" today to react to the controversy surrounding ESPN anchor Jemele Hill.

"In the end, ultimately, Michael and Jemele appearing on the show last night and doing the show the way they did is the outcome we always desired", senior VP Rob King told Think Progress.
