Trump Kicks Reporters Out Of White House Photo Op For Asking Questions

Posted March 11, 2017

It's no secret that President Donald Trump loves using Twitter.

Scrapping misspelled or hastily drafted tweets has been common practice for Trump in the past, including a recent instance where the word "hereby" had been incorrectly written as two words.

Members of Congress from both political parties are warning President Donald Trump not to delete any of his tweets, arguing that doing so could violate federal record-keeping laws.

In a letter to White House lawyers, Republican Jason Chaffetz and Democrat Elijah Cummings of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform raise concerns over the deleted tweets.

If Trump deleted the posts without archiving, and without consulting with the Archivist, this would indeed appear to be in violation of the Presidential Records Act.
