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

"I have not had that discussion with him", Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, told reporters, responding to questions about whether the president had soured on Sessions.

The White House may lose control of the message again on Thursday when fired FBI Director James Comey testifies about his investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "It's social media. You know the difference, right?"

CUOMO: It's his words, his thoughts.

The bot was inspired by Pat Cunnane, a writer and former White House press aide, who reformatted Trump's response to the London attacks in a tweet that's since gone viral. "It's not policy, it's not an executive order, it's social media". It's social media. Please understand the difference. Are the president's tweets important? "The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C".

While they recovered from that case of whiplash, reporters asked Spicer how Trump will wile away the hours on Thursday, when the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he sacked James Comey testifies before the House Intel Committee.

He also didn't comment on recent reports revealing that Trump International Hotel received about $270,000 from the Saudi Arabia. And, oh, how wrong we were. A 53-percent majority of GOP voters say Trump tweets too much - though slightly more Republicans say Trump's use of Twitter overall is a good thing (41 percent) than a bad thing (37 percent).

President Donald Trump talks on the phone in Washington, D.C., January 28, 2017.

"I think it's been great for him on the electoral side". It is the most important social media account operated by the US government or a USA government official right now.

"The president has always said that he wanted to buy a newspaper, and Twitter has filled that void - in fact, he notes it's a newspaper without the losses", said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide who was sacked but remains a supporter.

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

Trump has an array of possible defences against this possible lawsuit centering on the argument that the Twitter account used to block users is used in his personal capacity, some legal experts have argued. Jaffer threatens to sue to reverse the practice, saying that critical free speech is constitutionally protected. This is true even if the space in question is "metaphysical" rather than physical; even if the space is privately rather than publicly owned; and 'even when the limited public forum is one of [the government's] own creation'.
