In a tweet over the weekend, Trump reversed course on his explanation of a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower. The president had originally claimed that the meeting had been about adoptions. But in his Sunday tweet, Trump admitted that the purpose of the meeting had been to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee.
On Monday, White House correspondents reported that the White House had issued a “lid” on presidential travel and questions from the press.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also had not scheduled a Monday briefing by the time of publication.
