White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out CNN President Jeff Zucker for his statement calling on Sanders and the White House to stop attacking the media.

“You chose to attack and divide,” she said in a tweet Wednesday evening.

CNN was targeted on Wednesday — along with the Obamas, the Clintons and several other prominent Democrats who Trump tends to insult — when an explosive device was mailed to New York City CNN building, prompting an evacuation.
