"We see a problem with any stories that are inaccurate or untruthful being presented to the American people as facts", she said, punting.

"I would certainly trust the president and my comments far above those of other reporters", Sanders said.

Trump's tweet appeared to be in reference to an NBC report that claimed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently called Trump a "moron" - a claim Tillerson himself didn't outright deny during a news conference on Wednesday.

While taking photos alongside military leaders and their spouses before a Thursday night dinner at the White House, President Donald Trump cryptically stated reporters were seeing "the calm before the storm".

"The President believes that the freedom to practice one's faith is a fundamental right in this country", Huckabee Sanders said Friday, when the Trump administration released new guidelines ending an Obama regulation forcing Catholic employers to participate in the provision of birth control. "We're gonna continue doing that as a team with the president leading that effort". When pressed as to what he meant, especially given the problems with North Korea and rumors he will decertify the Iran nuclear agreement, the president would only say, "You'll find out".

"It was fake news", Trump said. "If he feels that action is necessary, he'll take it".

What's more, the White House wanted "input from the victims' families, from law enforcement, from policymakers", Sanders said.

When pushed on what he meant by "chaos", the Tennessee senator replied that those three officials "work very well together to make sure the policies we put forth around the world are ... sound and coherent".

Asked about the off chance that Trump was merely being "mischievous" or even "messing with the press a little bit", Sanders replied that she hadn't said that was the case and that North Korea and Iran continued to be "bad actors" that merit US vigilance.
