Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in the Marriot Bridgewater lobby, just gave the pool an in-person statement on the origins of President Trump’s North Korea statement:

“General Kelly and others on the NSC team were well aware of the tone of the statement of the president prior to delivery. The words were his own. The tone and strength of the message were discussed beforehand. They [Gen. Kelly and others] were clear the president was going to respond to North Korea’s threats following the sanctions with a strong message in no uncertain terms.”
