BAKARI SELLERS: This is about showing that the country is becoming browner in places like California, he has an issue with that.

ANDERSON COOPER: (HOST): Jason, is “breeding concept” as Sarah Sanders says, “the problem itself is growing and getting bigger?

JASON MILLER: Well I think when I first saw it and keep in mind this is last Wednesday so we’re talking almost a week ago. I don’t think I saw it when the president first tweeted it exactly at that moment. My first reaction when I saw it, I thought maybe he meant breeding contempt and that was the phrase that he was using there.
