Transcript as provided to PoliticusUSA by the White House:

Q Can you stand at the podium and guarantee the American people will never hear Donald Trump utter the N-word on a recording in any context?

MS. SANDERS: I can’t guarantee anything, but I can tell you that the President addressed this question directly. I can tell you that I’ve never heard it. I can also tell you that if myself or the people that are in this building — serving this country every single day, doing our very best to help people all across this country, and make it better — if at any point we felt that the President was who some of his critics claim him to be, we certainly wouldn’t be here.

This is a President who is fighting for all Americans; who is putting policies in place that help all Americans, particularly African Americans. Just look at the economy alone. This President, since he took office, in the year and a half that he’s been here, has created 700,000 new jobs for African Americans. That’s 700,000 African Americans that are working now that weren’t working when this President took place.

When President Obama left, after eight years in office — eight years in office, he had only created 800 — or 195,000 jobs for African Americans. President Trump in his first year and a half has already tripled what President Obama did in eight years. Not only did he do that for African Americans but for Hispanics; 1.7 million more Hispanics are working now. This is a President who cares about all Americans, who is committed to helping them, and is putting policies in place that actually do that.

Sanders managed to defend her racist boss with a fake statistic that is indicative of this administration’s racism.

In reality, Trump has added 700,000 jobs for black workers… but Obama added 3,000,000.

Furthermore, Trump inherited good economy from Obama, and the rate of job growth hasn’t increased significantly under Trump.

Why is the Trump administration so hung up on “black jobs?” Obama didn’t run around touting the number of white people he pulled out of the Great Recession. Sarah Sanders turned a question about Trump using the N-word on tape into an attack on Obama.

Her answer was a bit of racist sleight of hand that revealed how deeply racism is embedded in the Trump administration, not only as a political strategy, but as a matter of daily belief.
