White House Brings on Hogan Gidley as Deputy Press Secretary

The president made the comments in an interview with Forbes, speaking about the report that Tillerson called him a "moron" over the summer.

While the nominal corporate tax rate for USA corporations is higher compared to many other developed nations, the effective rate-due to loopholes, deductions, and other tax avoidance schemes written into the tax code-keeps effective rates exceedingly low. "And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump said.

Gidley will work with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"The President certainly never implied that the secretary of state was not incredibly intelligent", Sanders said.

MS. SANDERS: He made a joke.

Sanders tweeted Tuesday evening that she was "excited" to welcome Gidley to the West Wing press shop. And we're trying to move forward and focus on the agenda while you guys want to move forward and talk about who likes who, when that's simply not what we're doing here.

"Senator Corker worked with Nancy Pelosi and the Obama administration to pave the way for that and rolled out the red carpet for the Iran deal", Sanders said.

On a day in which President Donald Trump threatened to cut off aid to Puerto Rico and signed an executive order undercutting the Affordable Care Act, Sanders turned the microphone over to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Watch the exchange above.
