WATCH: White House addresses Trump’s tweets, health care in news briefing

A White House spokeswoman is defending President Donald Trump’s tweets attacking two cable television hosts, saying he fights “fire with fire.”

White House spokeswoman is expected to field questions over President Donald Trump’s tweets that attacked MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough this morning. Watch her remarks at 2 p.m. ET today in the player above.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders tells Fox News the president has never been someone “who gets attacked and doesn’t push back.”

Trump went after MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough Thursday morning, calling her “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and him “Psycho Joe.” He also claimed to have seen Brzezinski “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”

Sanders says the show has made “an outrageous number of personal attacks” on the president and says Trump “fights fire with fire and certainly will not be allowed to be bullied by liberal media and the liberal elites within the media or Hollywood or anywhere else.”
