1. In January 2017, Spicer was speaking to the press about the travel ban. He said that the executive order should not be called a travel ban. He said” It can’t be a ban if you’re letting a million people in”. Kristen Welker from NBC news then told Spicer it was Trump who referred to it as a ban. Spicer went on to defend the president by saying that he is using the words the media is using and said “ Ok I apologize that NBC news reporting is based on the NY Times false reporting”.
