White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked by a reporter about how history will view Trump, in light of recent comments by senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) about the president’s fitness for office.

“There were many people — I was one of those — who hoped he would rise to the occasion and aspire to lead our nation instead of dividing it,” Corker said. “He hasn’t risen to the occasion. At this point I realize what we’re dealing with, I think like most Americans.”

“We must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country – the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms, and institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations,” Flake said in a scathing speech on the Senate floor.

Recently, former president George W. Bush appeared to take the Trump presidency to task for a host of issues, including the coarseness of national discourse and America’s turn to “nativism.”

“We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America,” Bush said. “We see a fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade, forgetting that conflict, instability and poverty follow in the wake of protectionism. We’ve seen the return of isolationist sentiments, forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places.”

Sarah Sanders responded in extremely pointed fashion about the barbed question:

“I certainly think history is going to look at this president as somebody who helped defeat ISIS,” she began, “Who built an economy that’s stronger than it’s been in several decades. Who brought unemployment to a 16-year-low. Who’s created over 1.6 million jobs since being elected. I think those are the things that people actually care about, not some petty comments from Senator Corker and Senator Flake.

“And I think they’re a lot more concerned about the big policy initiatives that this president is driving,” she continued, “Including historic tax cuts, which we’re gonna get done by the end of this year, and then start focusing on some other things. Those are the things this president will be remembered by.”

It might help reporters posing questions to the White House to step outside of their bubbles and take a look at the big picture from the point-of-view of the American people.

Beyond the daily bickering about the stylistics of the Trump presidency, at the end of the day, it’s the substantive accomplishments that will actually count.
