The Trump administration has been engaged in a pretty brutal war with the media throughout President Trump's first year in office, repeatedly claiming that mainstream news outlets are unfair in their coverage of Trump. On Sunday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter to set the record straight about Trump's "underreported" accomplishments, and, in a tweet, Sanders claimed Trump has defeated ISIS.
"What is the more underreported story of @POTUS Year One?" Sanders asked her followers in a tweet that has since generated controversy. She listed "Defeat of ISIS" and "Booming Trump economy" as the options.
Needless to say, people were skeptical of Sanders' proclamation of victory over the powerful militant group, especially since an attempted ISIS suicide bombing was thwarted in a New York City bus terminal just last week. The United States military still has thousands of troops stationed across the Middle East still actively engaged in the fight against ISIS.
This is the second time this week that Sanders has caused a stir on Twitter — #piegate. But her unsubstantiated claim that America can proclaim victory over a terrorist group that continues to wreak havoc both at home and abroad is a bit more serious matter whether or not Sanders can bake a homemade pie — and the internet was quick to point that out. Some people even suggested some other options to add to Sanders' list of Trump's underreported actions.
