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.

Defending the president during a talk hosted by POLITICO, Sanders said on Tuesday that male reporters had been equally targeted by Trump’s vitriol and derision during press briefings.

“The president’s had an equal number of contentious conversations with your male colleagues,” Sanders told POLITICO’s Eliana Johnson at the sixth annual Women Rule Summit. “Women wanted to be treated equally, and we have a president that certainly does that.”
