CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday hesitated to say "shithole" even as it was written on the channel's chyron directly below him on screen.

During the daily press briefing, Sanders insisted the president was familiar with the House bill, including Section 702, which allows some warrantless surveillance of foreigners overseas.

While taking questions from reporters on Thursday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed several issues brought up the media.

Donald Trump's scheduled medical exam this week won't include a psychiatric evaluation, the White House said Monday as questions mount over the United States president's mental fitness. The Trump White House has seen more first-year staff turnovers than any other administration, according to The Wall Street Journal. For about two hours, they were phenomenal. "It is well-known that he has concerns about the domestic FISA law", said Ryan, who went on to acknowledge that the domestic law was "not what we're doing today".

While Trump's initial tweet reportedly sparked confusion on Capitol Hill, the House ultimately voted in favor of reauthorization by a 256-164 margin.

For all those on the far left, let me remind you that Donald Trump is more mentally fit to lead the US than many career politicians who are in the running to line their pockets and to have an easy life.

Trump was referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which lets spy agencies collect information on foreign targets overseas.

Sources close to the West Wing told CNN that the Trump administration is finding it hard to fill vacancies as the Russian Federation probe focuses on close Trump aides and the president's popularity plummets in the polls.
