Spicer: Trump’s Tweets Are Official Statements

President Donald Trump’s tweets should be “considered official statements” by the President, according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Spicer stressed that Trump is his own “most effective representative of his agenda.” He also recognizes the importance of Twitter to Trump because it “gives him the opportunity to speak to the American people”, the same way it became a “very effective tool” for Trump during the election.

As part of his official statements, Trump’s tweets, even deleted ones, are now saved as part of the country’s official record that goes to the National Archives and Records Administration. The same is true for former President Barack Obama whose Twitter account has also been archived.

White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway slammed the media recently for having “this obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as President.”

Trump is planning to live-tweet his reactions to the Senate Intelligence Committee testimony of former FBI Director James Comey whom the President fired in May. Trump said he would post his comments and feedback on Comey’s testimony “if needed.”

IF as Spicer states, then blocking the tweets from American citizens is illegal, if he blocks just one he's broken the law. It's right there in your constitution regarding speech, even with amendments any public forum that the President opens must be available for 'all citizens' about any lawful questions, etc.

One illegal block and Trump will have directly broken the laws of the constitution, no doubt he'll claim he didn't know, say it's someone elses fault, fire them but it won't matter, by law he must be brought to justice under American law, if your country fails to do that, then your entire constitution is worthless, your move America, is Trump your new King, or is he touchable?

What irony, because of Twitter of all things, Americans may need to decide… Freedom, Equality, Justice… or Slaves, Subservience, Sleaze.

Hey look, 2 days of peace, no tweety bird ramblings, and then they spoil it, who told him where his toys are, he's stealing quotes from decades ago and twattering on like they're his. For the love of god, break his thumbs!
