White House press secretary Sarah Sanders insisted Thursday that President Donald Trump's Thursday morning tweets about FISA were not contradictory. First Lady Melania Trump pays out of her own pocket for a stylist when she needs one, And while previous administrations did not have a make-up artist or hair stylist on staff or on the payroll, a former Clinton White House offical said it's what's needed to succeed.

Among the business-as-usual moments were White House officials blaming Democrats for delays on immigration and government-funding measures, even while the White House chief of staff was trying to close the deal, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announcing that taxpayers should see bigger paychecks next month - as long as new withholding tables the IRS is circulating work like they are created to.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly departs the U.S. Capitol after meeting with House Republicans ahead of their vote on the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" in Washington, U.S., November 16, 2017.

White House press secretary Sanders defended the decision in recent weeks, saying it has been in the works for the past six months.

While the two world leaders made statements that discussed national and world security, and U.S. Trump also would not commit to an interview with Robert Mueller .

This led to a bunch of "ooohs" and groans from reporters in the room. When Acosta asked her if President Trump seeks approval for the border wall in exchange for protecting Dreamers, Sanders very bluntly responded, "The president wants border security". "However, we still think we can get there". "We don't. I don't".

The White House chief of staff elaborated that "for our purposes, my goal, is we make sure the president is briefed up on what he's about to do".

Kelly's efforts to dismiss the power of Trump's tweets inside the White House is part public relations strategy and part effort to survive.

The briefing followed an unprecedented move by President Trump who allowed the press to attend almost an hour of a bipartisan meeting at the White House discussing immigration, according to The Daily Caller.

When Sanders provided an update on the president's 2018 legislative priorities, welfare reform did not make the list.
