Though not directly backing up President Donald Trump’s claims that he is the most transparent in United States history, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reports Wednesday that Trump is definitely the most transparent president in “at least 600 years.”
“I think you have to go back at least 500, maybe 600 years to find a U.S. presidential administration as honest and transparent as this one,” Huckabee Sanders said. “We are on par with all the great U.S. presidents of the 1700s, 1600s and 1500s.”
Trump echoed those statements this afternoon while speaking in the Rose Garden.
“Think back all the way to when this country was founded somewhere around the 1200s,” Trump said. “Can you think of a president that provides the people with more facts than this one?”
“Look through the history books, people. There isn’t. Believe me. Believe me.”
