The world may never know what President Donald Trump was thinking when he tweeted "covfefe," but the White House is claiming that his intended audience got the message loud and clear. "In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person".

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday the administration was referring "all matters" regarding the Russian Federation investigation to President Donald Trump's private counsel, Marc Kasowitz.

He is also purportedly under scrutiny in the FBI's ongoing investigation of potential collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign. His comments came on the heels of the resignation of White House Communications Director Mike Dubke-who did not have a relationship with Trump prior to taking the post.

The head of the Partnership for Public Service, which is advising the Trump administration on hiring, said qualified candidates' second-guessing working in the White House adds even more pressure to an already stressful undertaking.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk. "If the president has a decision on anything, we'll be sure to let you know".
