Social media rushes to define Trump's 'covfefe' tweet

The notion of world leaders calling each other up via cellphone may seem unremarkable in the modern, mobile world.
Trumpadministration officials would not say what type of mobile phone the USA president was using or describe any security upgrades it might include. The formalities and discipline of diplomacy have been a rough fit for Trump - who, before taking office, was long easily accessible by cellphone and viewed himself as freewheeling, impulsive dealmaker.

In creating a separate entity to handle the Russian Federation fallout, the White House hopes existing staffers can return their focus to executing the President's agenda, which has largely stalled as aides and advisers work to respond to the Russian Federation story. Aides said the president has not ruled out the possibility of his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner, exiting their White House positions. The person wasn't authorized to publicly discuss private policy deliberations and insisted on anonymity. "What they need is a chief of staff or someone else with a Rolodex of 5,000 names and a broad network to come clean this up", the official said in the report.
And while much of that took place behind closed doors, one lasting image of the European portion may be the way Trump pushed aside the prime minister of little Montenegro to take his front row place for a photo of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.
It was unclear whether an impromptu, informal call with a foreign leader would be logged and archived.
Congressional investigations into the Russian Federation issue have expanded to include Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, ABC News reported on Tuesday.
Separately, federal prosecutors pursuing a criminal investigation into Flynn have issued subpoenas to people and businesses who have done business with him seeking information, including bank records and communications, related to Flynn, the Flynn Intel Group and Invovo BV, a Dutch company owned by Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin, according to a document reviewed by Reuters.
