Sarah Huckabee Sanders' alternate facts about Trump's most excellent Columbian Mar-A-Lago adventure
Trump held a secret meeting at Mar-a-Lago with former Colombian presidents
Colombian media was flooded with speculation on if the meeting was real and press secretary Sean Spicer wasn’t willing to give any information when asked. Ultimately, the White House was forced to confirm the meeting to McClatchy but claimed it wasn’t significant and nothing more than a coincidence the two former presidents were at Trump’s club.
“They were there with a member from the club and briefly said hello when the president walked past them,” spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders explained. “There wasn’t anything beyond a quick hello.”
The two presidents don’t back that statement up.
After the meeting, Pastrana took to Twitter to thank Trump for a “cordial and very frank conversation” about problems in Colombia and Latin America.
