The way Sean Spicer sees it

President Trump honors fallen heroes The way Sean Spicer sees it

Trump administration officials would not say what type of mobile phone the United States president was using or describe any security upgrades it might include. In two morning tweets, he blasted congressional Democrats over an alleged report that they no longer wanted testimony from a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. With multiple investigations looking at whether the president's associates collaborated with Russian Federation to influence the election, any random, unfiltered tweet could become part of a legal case.

Spicer gave no further clarity on Mr. Trump's confounding overnight "covfefe" tweet, which created an Internet sensation and caused people to speculate about why the president is tweeting - and what he is tweeting - in the middle of the night.

Lewandowski said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends" that he'd be willing to join the White House staff if "the right role is there".

"Mike will assist with the transition and be a strong advocate for the president and the president's policies moving forward", Priebus said.

During today's White House briefing, spokesman Sean Spicer also claimed that "a small group of people know exactly" what Trump meant.

"I think it's a really bad idea", said Matthew Green, who teaches at the Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute and previously served as senior technical staff member at AT&T Laboratories.

Comey, as the bureau's chief, was overseeing its investigation of Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election, including questionable ties between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.

Armed security personnel entered the plane to remove the disruptive passenger and then escort the others out, he said. The passenger from economy class jumped up just after take-off and claimed he had a bomb.

A midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term "covfefe".

They seem to be the only people in the world who do know what Trump meant, when he tweeted: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".

Most people are not buying Spicer's explanation of the viral gaffe.

Many on Twitter have supplied tongue-in-cheek meanings.

The word quickly earned entries on Urban Dictionary, with the top definition below. The fact that Michael Dubke, the White House's communications director, resigned cut:[from that position] earlier this month, and that his decision became public Tuesday, has only stoked such speculation.

A new survey from Monmouth University says that 42% of Americans believe Spicer does more harm than good when he speaks on behalf of the administration, while only 28% see him as helping rather than harming his boss.

Trump has privately pinned some of the blame for his administration's rough start on the White House's communications strategy.
