White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday defended President Trump’s treatment of women after scandal-plagued Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) took a parting shot at the president in his resignation speech.

“I think that the president treats, certainly as a woman myself, I’ve never felt treated with anything but the highest level of respect and been empowered to do my job and that’s what I’ve seen the president do day in and day out since I’ve been here and during the campaign,” Sanders said told reporters at a press briefing.

The press secretary added that White House staff has been reminded of policies that are in place to ensure everyone is treated respectfully.

“There’s certainly White House policies we are reminded of and all of us expect each of us to respect those policies and to not cross a line that is not only not legal but not appropriate and not ethical,” she said.
