President Donald Trump has made numerous derisive comments about female reporters, but White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders won’t say whether he crossed the line.

“The president’s had an equal number of contentious conversations with your male colleagues,” Sanders told POLITICO’s Eliana Johnson at the 6th annual Women Rule Summit. “Women wanted to be treated equally, and we have a president that certainly does that.”
Trump has personally mocked many reporters in the two years of his presidency. During a Rose Garden briefing in October, he told ABC’s Cecilia Vega: “I know you’re not thinking. You never do.” He has also attacked male reporters, getting into an infamous tussle with CNN’s Jim Acosta last month that led to Acosta’s White House access being temporarily denied.
