President Donald Trump has hired Hogan Gidley, a longtime Republican campaign operative with deep roots in the conservative movement, to serve as a deputy White House press secretary, officials said Tuesday.

At a press briefing Tuesday, Sanders said Trump meant to say that America was the "highest taxed corporate nation" among "developed economies across the globe". Ultimately she told the reporter they would just have to "agree to disagree" on whether two different claims were actually the same thing.

Trump made the claim in the Oval Office during a meeting with Henry Kissinger, according to a pool report.

This will be a reunion of sorts for Sanders and Gidley, who worked together on campaigns for her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. In countries with strong social welfare programs, like Sweden, France, and Finland, citizens pay far more.

"I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

Following up an earlier question on the matter, Kristen Welker of NBC News asked Sanders how the president can expect the secretary of state to be effective when he's "questioning his intelligence". She says United States is "highest corporate taxed nation" in developed world. "But the President keeps repeating this claim that we are the highest taxed nation".

GOP: Trump is right USA has highest corporate tax rate in OECD.
