White House: Trump's tweets are 'official statements'

10 June 2017

Everyone's been telling Trump not to tweet, and he continues to tweet, and so I think it's important to take him seriously, even if not literally.

On this question, Trump does a little bit better with his base, as just 37 percent of Republicans called his Twitter use a bad thing, and 35 percent of Trump voters agreed. 'They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out'.

The White House even blasts the tweets to other social media platforms, posting graphics of the tweets on Instagram or even celebrating longer tweet storms in videos uploaded to Trump's Facebook page.

"It's not policy. It's social media", Gorka responded dismissively.

CUOMO: It's not social media. "It's probably upgraded at this point, given that where we don't have a communications director". I'm not sure anyone is in a position to simply tell the President to stop doing something and have him actually listen.

The White House has defended tweets by US President Donald Trump that have raised concern among opponents and allies alike.

The President has the right-just like any other individual-to communicate or not communicate with anyone he wants to. On Monday, Trump lashed out at his own Justice Department for offering a "watered down, politically correct" version of his executive order barring travel to the United States from a handful of majority-Muslim countries.

"Around 2012, that's when coaches stopped thinking they could go at me and get a basket or get me in foul trouble", Durant said. While it's impossible to know how Golden State would stack up to some of the best teams of all time, Kerr has a good point.

"Its kinda odd to have the defendant in Hawaii v. Trump acting as our co-counsel".

In a follow-up question, another reporter asked about the ACLU's tweet that they will use the President's tweets in building a case in the Supreme Court: "Yes, we may incorporate @realDonaldTrump's tweets about the ban into our Supreme Court argument". When she tweeted in March that not all of the effects of colonialism created consequences were bad, the message eerily sounded like a tweet that could have been sent from Trump himself.

Of course, Trump's staffers and aides and secretaries have backtracked, contradicted, and immediately abandoned their official statements before.

Any attempt to differentiate between Trump's Twitter feed and the official voice of the White House is a distinction without a difference. If so, can the president violate the Constitution if he prevents a user's access? Unfortunately, it is the exact opposite of what this same White House said only a day ago. But that ended poorly for him, so perhaps that's why he kept his Twitter fingers holstered today.

There is practically nothing which defines Trump's presidency more than Trump on Twitter, which has been an open route into whatever is on his mind. He did make it clear at a campaign rally in August when he asked the audience: "You know who says don't use Twitter?".
