'Covfefe' legislation could stop Trump deleting his tweets

Quigley, who is a co-founder and co-chairman of the Congressional Transparency Caucus, went on to note that the National Archives had released guidance stating that social media merits historical recording.

Bill called COVFEFE Act has been proposed in order to hold US President Donald Trump accountable for his posts on Twitter and other social media platforms.

Congressman Mike Quigley wants to make sure all social media posts by the president become part of the official presidential record.

For one fateful night in May, for one fateful night, the internet was gripped by a weird pronouncement by the president of the United States ― namely, Donald Trump's cryptic "covfefe" tweet, which became an overnight sensation. The meaning of the bill is that all of Trump's tweets since his inauguration would be kept forever.

The bill's title "Covfefe " would stand for "communications over various feeds electronically for engagement".

But the White House recently clarified that social media should be taken as official communication from the president.

The famous tweet

Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of IL on Monday introduced the Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement Act, also known as the COVFEFE Act.

The "covfefe" tweet in May read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe", said CBS News.

So under this law, Trump's practice of deleting his tweets from both his personal and POTUS accounts would be considered unlawful. Quigley's bill, basically, would remove any question about that, legally establishing that Trump may not delete his tweets after sending them.

"This morning, President Trump continued his anti-media tirade on twitter claiming the media is "wrong" and dirty".

Spicer, asked at a news briefing at the time whether people should be concerned about the covfefe tweet, said, "no" and added, "I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".

Quigley also introduced the "Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness (MAR-A-LAGO)" Act in March to require the publication of visitor logs to locations where the commander in chief conducts official business, including Trump Organization properties, in addition to the White House.
