Trump's tweets draw scorn from some, support from others

"The president is the president of the United States, so they're considered official statements by the president of the United States", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday. It doesn't seem so.

After Trump slammed the Justice Department's handling of the Muslim ban on Monday, ABC News' Jonathan Karl reports that the attorney general and president's relationship has grown so combative that Sessions recently offered his resignation.

In a new article from the Washington Post about President Donald Trump's Twitter habits running counter to his spokespeople, a former adviser to the president mused that he views the social network as his own publication.

Political experts argue social media helped Mr. Trump win the White House.

Legal experts say Trump's recurring calls earlier this week on Twitter for a tougher version of his immigration executive order could undermine his administration's effort to reinstate the controversial policy.

This could mean that Scavino plans to force Trump to unblock those users, but the unusual phrasing (Trump "will not stop" - as opposed to start - communicating with the whole country) indicates that Scavino more likely misunderstands the letter. "Please understand the difference".

"I think it's just the obsession over every detail of the president's tweets", she said. When faced with the platform as Trump's preferred method of communication, Conway said "that's not true". 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.

That messaging efficiency will soon be tested, on issues like the controversial travel ban executive order as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mr Spicer said during a press conference this morning, "the president is the most effective messenger on his agenda".

Sanders told reporters she's not aware of the tweets being vetted by a lawyer.
