White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump's tweets are considered "official" White House statements.

During Tuesday's White House press briefing, Spicer was asked if the White House considered Trump's tweets to be "official statements."

"The president is the president of the United States so they are considered official statements by the president of the United States," Spicer insisted.

The press secretary also suggested that Trump was not worried about his tweets being used during Supreme Court arguments about a plan to ban Muslim travelers from some countries.

"The court should follow the law," he said. "There's no question that we should prevail."
