At a Thursday White House event, President Donald Trump said that he had a “very busy day” after posting over 90 tweets and retweets on his Twitter account throughout Thursday morning. 

As the House prepares to impeach Trump on charges of abusing his office and obstructing Congress, Trump has gone on a multi-day retweet spree, flooding the Internet with clips of Republican members of Congress and op-eds from conservative pundits defending him. 

By Insider’s count, Trump had posted 95 tweets or retweets on his personal account by noon Thursday. On Wednesday, Trump similarly tweeted over 60 times in three hours to rag on the impeachment inquiry and the FBI. 

“I had very busy time and a very busy day, but my daughter said, ‘You will be here’, so that was the end of that busy day, when a daughter says you have to be here,” Trump said at the beginning of Thursday’s White House Summit on Child Care and Paid Leave.

The summit, which began at 11:15 A.M., was Trump’s first event of the day listed on his public schedule. Later, Trump is scheduled to receive an intelligence briefing and attend this year’s Congressional Ball with First Lady Melania Trump. 

 

Trump was referring to his eldest daughter Ivanka, an unpaid White House advisor and mother of three with husband Jared Kushner, has taken up a push for child care and paid family leave as a major component of her policy portfolio. 

On Wednesday, the House passed a bipartisan defense authorization package that both secured one of Trump’s top policy priorities by creating a Space Force and, for the first time, extended 12 weeks of paid parental leave to federal government employees.
