“I think he would be happy,” said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, referring to the president’s position on the social media platform.
“I think that he has been so successful, it is kind of hard to imagine he wouldn’t be proud.”
President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to lash out at the media, and he has a history of using it as a weapon against his political opponents.
But he has repeatedly said he does not believe in Twitter censorship.
“It is a free country and you have the right to say whatever you want to say,” Conway said.
“And that is a speech I think the president takes very seriously.”
The official said the president would be more comfortable with using a private account, which has been in use since January.
“He wants to be a part of that and be able to do whatever he wants,” Conway added.
“So I think he will do the right thing and let the lawyers do their work and move forward.”
