Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions

He also created the @Stl_Manifest account, which tweeted out the names of Jewish passengers on the MS St. Louis who, after being turned away from the United States in 1939, perished in the Holocaust.

And yet, over the last 48 hours, a slew of Trump surrogates - not to mention Trump himself - have tried to argue that the only way to understand Trump's social media presence is to hold both of those ideas in your head at the same time.

The sun was still rising Monday when Trump upended best-laid plans with a blitz of provocative statements delivered via Twitter.

Many saw the tweets as a rebuke of Sessions. Normally, we'd wonder how the president feels about that - but hey, this is Trump. God, you're embarrassing. So glad we are finally getting the TRUTH, ' O'Reilly wrote May 28 on Twitter, in response to a Trump tweet about leaked intelligence from the United Kingdom.

What's remarkable is that Trump's logic regarding his Twitter feed isn't even the most tortured defense of his social media practices out there this morning. "It's not policy. It's not policy, ' Gorka told 'New Day" co-host Chris Cuomo.

Trump dismissed the scientific consensus that rising temperatures are caused primarily by fossil fuels like coal and oil. The White House did not confirm the reports , while Trump restated that his decision would be announced this week.

The bot, Neiss said, is simply "taking the president's words and giving them the honor that they deserve". So there is a balance.

It's interesting. I was very pleased yesterday to see a lot of artists, people who I think are real artists in the visual space, tweeting about the bot and framing it in that context.

Spicer did not say whether Trump is anxious that his off-the-cuff tweeting may undermine his legal argument for the ban, as it has several times already.

So. Um. Here's the thing.

"I have not had a discussion with him about that", Spicer said as sources said Trump is still fuming over Sessions' recusal from the federal investigation into potential ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation. That Twitter is the authentic Trump, the one not lawyered up and filtered down. White House officials have not responded to requests for comment. Three people briefed on the matter said the process has been bogged down by a lack of decision-making in the West Wing over how to proceed, as well as reluctance from some of those the White House hoped to recruit about serving a president who keeps getting in his own way. A slew of former Sessions aides also serve in top White House positions. "When push comes to shove, what matters is what's in Trump's head".
