President-elect Donald Trump has no plans to scrap his controversial and sometimes inflammatory use of Twitter and other social media tools after he becomes president in just 20 days, his top spokesman said Sunday.
"When he tweets, he gets results," Sean Spicer, Trump's incoming press secretary, told ABC News. "So whether it's Twitter, holding a news conference, picking up the phone, having a meeting, he is going to make sure that he continues to fight for the American people every single day."
In the days after his election victory, Trump told CBS' "60 Minutes" that he would be "very restrained" on Twitter in the White House, though he cautioned that he would also use the service to combat negative press. He has continued to use the social media platform to blast opponents, propose policies and make statements that critics and fact-checkers have labeled as alternately outlandish and false.
