"I think once that's done, we'll respond appropriately", Mr. Spicer said.

The president and his aides operate two Twitter pages.

It's now the mid-day point of President Donald Trump's presidency - an important benchmark where new administrations are measured. Given Trump's habit of deleting typo-filled tweets, the panel is questioning whether these posts have been properly archived in compliance with the Presidential Records Act.

Julian Eccles, a British tourist who visited the White House with his eldest son in 2009, told The Independent he was disappointed not to be able to return on a trip with his younger son later this year.

"I feel sure that my friend @randpaul will come along with the new and great health care program because he knows Obamacare is a disaster!" "It's not a question of what we believe", Spicer said.
