Donald Trump dominated the headlines once again on Thursday morning following his controversial tweets about the hosts of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC. When deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to elaborate, she quickly came to the defense of the president.

Sanders on Trump

Donald Trump and his relationship with the media has only gotten worse from the day he announced his campaign for president back in June 2015. The press jumped on Trump's remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico being "rapists" and "murderer," and the rift between both sides has shown no signs of improving.

Since his election last November, the former host of "The Apprentice" has only increased his war of words on the media, going as far as labeling any reports he doesn't like as "fake news," while calling out news outlets, cable news hosts, and reporters on a daily basis. On Thursday morning, Trump continued this theme with a pair of tweets about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski due to their harsh criticism of the White House. Part of Trump's remarks accused Brzezinski of having a facelift, which didn't go over well, including with many Republicans. As part of the administration's defense, Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the issue during the June 29 press briefing,

Taking questions in place of Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was defiant in her defense of Donald Trump and the controversial tweets sent out about Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.

When asked if Trump went "too far" with his tweets, she replied, "I don't think so." "The president, he's not going to step back. He has showed that and that is exactly what he did today," she continued.

Not stopping there, the deputy press secretary continued to back up Donald Trump.

"He's not going to sit back and be attacked by the liberal media, Hollywood elites," she said, before adding, "When they hit him, he's going to hit back." In response to MSNBC's Karen Finny, Sanders then replied, "The only person I see a war on is this president and everybody that works for him."

Sanders on God and faith

During the press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if Donald Trump's behavior was acceptable for the office of the president and if she was prepared to defend it to her children. Sanders responded, cited her faith and God while defending the commander in chief. "As a person of faith, we all have one perfect role model," she said in an apparent reference to Jesus and God.
