Wednesday at an event at the University of Chicago with former Obama adviser David Axelrod, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked about how he reacts to President-elect Donald Trump’s use of Twitter.
Spicer argued it wasn’t a bad thing and said Trump’s of Twitter drove the news and offered evidence.
“No, but I do look there first,” he said. “Because that’s what’s going to drive the news. Whatever he tweets is going to drive the news. You saw the House vote the other day – he sends a single tweet out saying the House was not focused on tax reform and is instead focused on the Office of Government Ethics. And you know, immediately it’s withdrawn.”
