The bill has the same acronym as a Trump Twitter typo that went viral last month, would amend the Presidential Records Act to include “social media.”

Quigley’s office issued a statement:

“President Trump’s frequent, unfiltered use of his personal Twitter account as a means of official communication is unprecedented. If the President is going to take to social media to make sudden public policy proclamations, we must ensure that these statements are documented and preserved for future reference. Tweets are powerful, and the President must be held accountable for every post.”
