Sean Spicer Says Federal Agency Directive to Stop Tweeting Didn’t Come From White House

During his Wednesday media briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that the White House did not put out a gag order for Environmental Protection Agency and other federal organizations.

Reports have circulated over the last few days about how various agencies were supposedly forced to freeze their social media accounts. Spicer said that the Trump Administration never ordered any such thing, but that federal employees were told by their departments to obey their rules on social media use.

When asked about whether President Trump believes that the federal workforce has become “politicized,” Spicer said that the administration hasn’t focused on that yet.
