White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday that questions related to the investigation potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation will now be referred to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer.

The tweet, sent at 12:06 a.m., was favorited almost 10,000 times in one minute and drew ridicule of online Trump critics.

When former President Barack Obama wanted to continue using his Blackberry, US security officials gave him a modified one that permitted him to stay in touch with senior White House staffers and a small group of personal friends.

He chafes at reports suggesting Trump is planning to shake up the communications team because he isn't satisfied with Spicer's performance.

It's possible that in the future, there will be fewer press briefings led by White House communications staff, and instead there will be more press conferences with President Trump himself.

Trump administration officials also wouldn't say what type of cellphone the USA president was using or describe any security upgrades it might include.

The Wisconsin Republican also said he does not believe European leaders liked Trump, because his concerns are about security and terrorism, not the environment and global warming. And then Trump's Twitter account went silent for several hours.

There was much speculation as to why Spicer, a devout Catholic, was excluded from the president's visit to the Vatican, with sources claiming the exclusion should have been seen as a slight to the beleaguered press secretary. At Wednesday's briefing, which was off-camera, one reporter could be heard shouting after the departing press secretary, "How short are these gonna be!?"

Fusion was one of the first on the case, quoting Trump's tweet and adding a meta twist: "It's now been 15 minutes and the President still hasn't deleted this tweet". Trump poked fun at the typo, tweeting around 6 a.m., "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???"

The word quickly earned entries on Urban Dictionary, with the top definition below.

The "evasion may also reflect what sources close to Spicer describe as the White House's waning patience with the press corps", explains Byers.

Meanwhile, Duffy said he does not think there will eventually be evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, but he does think Trump senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner should have divulged his contacts with Russian Federation on his security forms.
