On Thursday, Donald Trump reiterated his intention to tweet again on his own timeline, after his Twitter account was temporarily suspended Thursday morning after Trump was spotted in the White House briefing room.
“It will be done,” Trump said in a statement released by the White Senate.
“I want to be very clear.
We will be doing it.
We are not suspended.
We do not have the ability to do it.
I will not do it.”
The tweet was not immediately deleted, but did not appear to contain any new information about Trump’s upcoming rally in California.
“We have to make sure that we have all the facts,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in response to questions about the president’s Twitter status.
“So I want to make it very clear that the president is not suspended.”
Sanders said that Trump has not yet issued any public statements on his Twitter feed, but will “probably” do so in the coming days.
On Thursday morning, Trump’s Twitter account retweeted a tweet that said he was going to “make a BIG announcement” on Twitter about his rally in North Carolina.
“The rally I was supposed to go to today was canceled, so I am going to make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT on Twitter, so you will all know that the United States will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” Trump tweeted.
A few hours later, the White’s Twitter feed was back online.”@realDonaldTrump is going to hold a big rally tomorrow,” the WhiteHouse tweeted.
“Let the tweets begin.
It’s going to be huge!”
Trump’s press secretary did not say what the event would be.
Earlier this week, Trump tweeted that he had scheduled a rally in Texas for Tuesday night.
“A rally to take place in Texas on Tuesday night,” Trump wrote, “with the endorsement of my son Donald Jr.”
The rally in question is set to take to the streets of Dallas.
“It’s a great rally.
It will be BIG,” Trump added, in a tweet.
