On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Trump’s Tweets should be taken as official statements, which contradicts other White House officials who have said otherwise, especially after the nature of Trump’s Tweets recently.
“The president is the president of the United States, so his Tweets are considered official statements.” Spicer said. The president often responds to major issues on Twitter. For example, after the recent London terror attack, Trump decides to use Twitter to pick a fight with the major of London. Then, tried to cover it up by offering support to the U.K. after the attack.
White House national security advisor Sebastian Gorka told CNN, “It’s not policy, it’s not an executive order, it’s social media. Please understand the difference.” On the other hand, Sarah Huckabee Sanders bashed the media. She feels the media is obsessed with Trumps tweets and they use them as a way to make him look bad because he speaks directly and unfiltered to his followers. “I think it’s just the obsession over every detail of the president tweets,” she said.
