"None of this happened": WH, Pentagon call Trump ISIS story into question

The White House did not ask defense officials to help come up with ideas to brand the Trump administration’s anti-ISIS efforts differently from the Obama administration, Senior Pentagon and White House officials told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“The White House has asked defense officials to come up with new ideas to help brand the Trump campaign as different from its predecessor,” The Daily Beast reported Wednesday, citing two defense officials and a senior administration official.

“None of this happened,” a senior White House official told TheDCNF, vehemently denying the report.
