Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions

07 June 2017, 04:45 | Katrina Lee

Also on Tuesday, the New York Times reported former FBI Director James Comey had told Sessions he did not want to be left alone with the president after Trump asked him to shut down the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. And finally we have an outlet in which to read them that feels a little more reflective of the situation.

Consider Trump's personal attack on London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, after Saturday night's deadly terrorist attack in the British capital.

Trump's tweets are no less authoritative than Trump's comments in a press availability or a speech.

There's a growing trend among Donald Trump's advisers: Listen to what he says, not what he tweets.

The issue has heightened recently with a rash of tweets, many of them argued to be perceived embarrassing to the United States and to the Presidency. It seemed like a pretty obvious decision, but apparently Trump blames Sessions's recusal for the inability of federal investigators, reporters, and the public to forget all this treasonous nonsense and move on already. According to The New York Daily News, "That position would have put Conway in charge of defending Trump against all lawsuits against the administration. They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out". The official said they wanted to avoid a repeat of what happened when Kellyanne Conway said Trump had confidence in Flynn only to find out hours later that the national security adviser had been pushed out.

President Trump: Kushner is doing a 'great job' for the country
Trump , who made no public appearances Sunday, was expected to deliver remarks at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. Some Democrats have called for cancelling Kushner's security clearance which he enjoys as a senior adviser to the president.

But the official White House position is that merely paying attention to the man at all is a conspiracy against him, which makes it very damn hard to parse out what, aside from Kellyanne Conway's own perpetually-grimacing face, our national news is supposed to now consist of. But Monday morning's series of messages shows Trump will rarely, if ever, break his Twitter habit.

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'" Trump continued in a string of early Sunday morning tweets. Here's what it does: Scrapes Twitter every 5 minutes for new Trump tweets and then "transforms them into correct Presidential statement format".

Kellyanne Conway, speaking to NBC News, scolded the media for their "obsession" with Trump's Twitter account. This new bot is just another fun way to try to keep your mind off the fact that the same man who tweeted "covfefe" is making decisions that will affect our country. On Tuesday, press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters, "I have not had a discussion with him about that". "Let's talk about policy". However, the nuances at the end, there will be a certain filter they go through when they become official policy.

But it was the president himself who signed an executive order replacing his original ban.
