CNN’s Dana Bash on Trump’s Tweeting: When You’re President, ‘You’ve Got to Be Clear’

CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash said that it would be helpful if President Trump could be more “clear” in his tweets so that a prominent member of his legal team doesn’t get caught up in a back-and-forth trying to downplay it. After the president tweeted that he is under investigation, Jay Sekulow told Chris Wallace that he was just talking about the reporting on the subject and was not confirming anything. He and Wallace got into a big back-and-forth about whether the president is under investigation or not. Bash told Wolf Blitzer tonight that it’s “very difficult to say everything you want to say in a tweet,” which is one of the reasons people don’t want the President tweeting like this. “It wasn’t clear in the tweet,” she said, “and when you’re President of the United States, you’ve got to be clear. Period.” Bash also noted that “frustrating” supporters of his that he’s tweeting over and over about this stuff instead of focusing more on the agenda he promised he would carry out.
