White House Spokesperson uses Armenian Genocide Term During her Briefing

White House spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany used the Armenian Genocide term during a press briefing, News.am reports.    

Asked to comment on US President Donald Trump's remarks that many of the problems the country faces stem from “extreme indoctrination and bias” in the education system, the press secretary noted: "But, look, we’ve got a real problem in this country.

Grant.

In December of 2019, the US Senate approved a unanimous consent request on the adoption of the Armenian Genocide resolution. Senators Robert Menendez and Ted Cruz presented the resolution for the 4th time. In October the House adopted a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
