"Covfefe"-there's a U.S. congressional act for that now"

Rep. Mike Quigley

Following huge speculation - and mockery - at what his likely typo was meant to say, the US President wrote: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

The ambiguous tweet quickly lit up the social network and stayed online for more than five hours before being removed.

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) introduced legislation Monday to classify presidential social media posts - including President Trump's much-discussed tweets - as presidential records.

"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", the statement said.

If the bill were to be signed into law, it could also make deleting the president's tweets illegal. "This includes 140-character tweets".

It had already been a subject of debate whether the president's tweets, both on his official @POTUS account and his longstanding personal @realDonaldTrump account, were technically covered under the existing Presidential Records Act.

As is, the Presidential Records Act mandates that presidents take all necessary steps to ensure their records are properly documented and stored with the National Archives and Records Administration for public release after they leave office.

Case in point, Rep. Mike Quigley of IL who introduced the not-so-cleverly named "Covfefe Act" that seeks to make it illegal for President Trump to delete his tweets.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said last week that Trump's tweets "are considered official statements by the president of the United States".

His messages on the social media site are sometimes riddled with spelling and grammar mistakes.

President Donald Trump's taking to Twitter to attack his enemies and engage his supporters has become one of the defining characteristics of his presidency.

"I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant", he said.

This is not the first cleverly titled Trump-targeted bill Quigley has introduced.
