house Bill H.R. 2884

COVFEFE Act: Should a President's Social Media Posts Have to be Preserved?

Argument in favor

If the president uses social media in an official capacity then all communications need to be preserved, even if they have misspelled words.

President Trump's Twitter tweets are an embarrassment to the country and often contain blatant lies. They may be the only thing holding him accountable and should be preserved under the Covfefe Act

If we don't record the worst of history, it will be repeated.

What the President says matters, especially when he's saying it on my dime. Save the records.

Argument opposed

It’s not entirely clear that social media posts by presidents are covered by the Presidential Records Act, and their preservation isn’t necessary.

Are we really going to waste the nation's time and money on an issue like this?

Give me a BREAK! This is such a PETTY, DISGUSTING, and DISRESPECTFUL bill! It's yet another attempt to demean our President by the Democrats. They have apparently dropped all pretense of civility. This is NOT about preserving information in order to hold someone accountable for something they said. This is mockery, plain and simple, plus the fact that they are hoping to eventually catch the President saying something THEY think he shouldn't have said, something they can use against him. HEAVEN FORBID THE PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE HIS OWN STYLE OF EXPRESSING HIMSELF TO THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED HIM! The DemoCommies just can't STAND the fact that Donald Trump feels free (imagine the NERVE of the guy!) to express himself informally and SOCIALLY! I doubt that President Trump would have a problem with his tweets being preserved, but the informal title of this bill speaks volumes about the contempt the left has for this President. That's why I'm voting NAY!

    The White House press secretary stated that those tweets involved are the POTUS's own words and we are to take them as a statement from him. In that case they should certainly be preserved.

    The presidential word matters, elected officials should be held responsible for the things they've stated, regardless of the venue.

    Absolutely - this is the Presidency!! Not a high school Facebook group. I am sick of the hateful lazy language and communication from 45 - he is diminishing the office and has done irreparable harm already to the sanctity of our elections and democracy. Every single tweet must be preserved for posterity - hopefully one day, generations can look back at this as a ridiculous aberration - God willing we don't continue this slide and accept lies, blaming, knee-jerk reactions. and divisiveness !!

    Our president should be held accountable for what he says, no matter whether he verbally says it or posts it online. You can't take back things that you say, social media shouldn't be any different for the person running our country

    Accountability and history require it, especially when the President varies from objective truth so often.

    Yes, if that is how he/she chooses to communicate with the public, he/she should be accountable for what he/she says. It's no different than any other communications.

    The President's tweets are official WH communications. They directly reflect the President's state of mind, and policy decisions. Yes, preserve them.

    What the president says on social media shouldn't be discounted just because of the platform it's on.

    With Trump in the WH, all documents, phone calls, tweets, conversations should be kept. He has flip-flopped so many times, I'm dizzy. Everything he does should be taped, not just to be used as evidence in an investigation but as learning tools for future generations in how to communicate effectively. Or not to in this case. Social media is his choice of communication. Bad...very covfefe. The WH staff and his base supporters have stated this is his preferred way of communicating. So let the preservation of all social media begin.
