When it comes to the president’s Twitter feed, there’s one that hasn’t changed since he was sworn in on Jan. 20, 2017: The daily White House briefing.
Since then, the president has used his Twitter account to call out critics and criticize others, including his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster.
At least five times, he has used it to post unflattering photos and video of others, in addition to criticizing members of his own party.
On Monday, however, the tweet about the briefing, which was not an official White House statement, was the first to appear on the president-elect’s official Twitter account.
On the day of Trump’s inauguration, he sent an unsigned tweet, titled, “This was the most productive briefing we’ve had all year,” that contained a photo of himself reading a book from the back of a wheelchair and included a picture of him reading aloud the first paragraph of a New York Times op-ed titled, “[T]he first sentence of the op-eds I read were a bit too much for me, but the first sentence is all I ever read.”
The next day, he tweeted about how the press has gotten so politically correct in recent weeks.
The tweet also included a photo from a campaign event in Pennsylvania, which included a line that read, “We need to stop being so politically incorrect.”
On Tuesday, the next day the tweet appeared, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, told reporters that the president did not use the briefing to make a political statement, but instead, to talk about his agenda.
“The president has been using his Twitter feed to promote the agenda of the administration,” she said.
“It’s not an attack on any particular individual or a campaign statement.”
However, when asked whether it was appropriate for a White House official to use the president himself to promote his agenda, Huckabee Sanders said, “I don’t think so.”
The president’s use of his Twitter to make political statements also comes as the president is expected to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has been one of Trump a few times during his time in office.
Trump tweeted that he had spoken with Ryan at the White, and that he would “see you soon.”
Ryan, however did not respond to a request for comment on Trump’s tweet.
The president has also repeatedly criticized the federal government, particularly the Department of Education, saying that the agency’s funding and policies have been “unfair.”
The Education Department was the target of a lawsuit filed by the Education Freedom Coalition last year, and the lawsuit is currently pending.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Education Department announced that it would hold a conference call to address the lawsuit and to “review the proposed changes to the Office of Civil Rights.”
The conference call is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is available on the department’s website.
At this point, the Trump administration has not made any announcements about when the conference call will take place, or what will be discussed.
The Trump administration is also not planning any public events, including a speech or a press conference.
“I’m sure there’s going to be some stuff planned,” Trump said during his press conference on Jan 1, when pressed by reporters about the possibility of a public event.
“But I think we’re going to keep it very private.”
The White House is also still awaiting a response from a judge to the lawsuit.
