Did Trump break the law by deleting his Luther Strange tweets?

Trump has previously deleted tweets containing typos or spelling mistakes, raising questions over whether the president’s tweets should be preserved under the Presidential Records Act 1978 (PRA), which forbids the destruction of presidential communications.

The bill was introduced in the wake of the Nixon presidency and the Watergate scandal.

In June, Democrat lawmaker Mike Quigley introduced the “COVFEFE” Act, which would make the president’s social media communications subject to the same restrictions as other forms, and preserved for historical record. The act was named after a typo in a deleted Trump tweet from May, in which the president intended to complain about negative press coverage, but instead typed “covfefe.”
