White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping

Share

President Donald Trump's Twitter account is once again the subject of debate, as the Knight First Amendment Institute urged him to unblock individuals in a letter sent to the White House yesterday.

In a press conference on Tuesday, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump's tweets should be considered official statements.

But the general public is growing increasingly concerned with his tweeting, according to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey that shows growing discontent - even among the president's own base - with his use of the social media platform.

"The President is the most effective messenger on his agenda", he said, adding that tweeting had served Trump well during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Tuesday, Spicer called Trump's penchant for tweeting an example of his messaging prowess.

However, her husband, attorney George Conway might disagree with his wife as he tweeted that the president's tweet on the travel ban could come back and haunt him in front of the court.

Trump's tweets have implications, especially outside of the US.

The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University says it'll consider a lawsuit if Trump doesn't unblock Twitter users. When it finds a new post, the bot drops the text onto White House letterhead to ensure it's recognized as a formal statement from the president.

That region accounted for $9 billion of the more than $20 billion in Chinese arms exports from 2011 to 2015. The South Asian country is already a major destination for Chinese arms, the report said.

More immediately, Trump's musings on Twitter are proving to be an unhelpful distraction for his team. He rebuked them for not pursuing his original executive order banning Muslims from certain countries from entering the US and instead throwing their legal weight behind a "watered down" version. "But it's mostly just nuts!", Szczerba tweeted at the President.

Top aide Kellyanne Conway claimed the same day that the media has an "obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter, and very little of what he does as President".

If the fact that voters generally disapprove of Trump's constant tweets is bad for him, the Politico poll also underscored that voters disapprove of the Trump presidency and his recent actions such as his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement.

"I sympathize", Williams said, "with the plight of the White House communications staff".

The tweets, Conway wrote, won't help administration lawyers "get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters".

Despite the assurances about Mr Spicer's future, White House officials have also previously suggested he may do fewer on camera briefings in future.

Comey is to testify before the U.S. Congress on Thursday to lay out the details of his conversations with the president about Russian Federation before the firing.
