MSNBC — President Donald Trump is asking social media companies to send employees to his inauguration and send messages about his administration and his policies.
The request comes amid a growing outcry about the Trump administration’s social media strategy, which has been criticized for a lack of coordination between agencies and messaging platforms.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The administration is also asking companies such as Facebook and Twitter to create a White House Twitter account and send tweets about the new president.
Trump is also seeking to promote social media events that have been canceled or delayed, including a series of events in January that were originally scheduled to be held in New York City.
The Trump White House does not plan to cancel the inauguration, according to a White, Pennsylvania, official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The request comes after a growing chorus of critics called for the Trump White Houses social media efforts to be more transparent and transparently coordinated.
The issue comes amid criticism about the administration’s efforts to promote its social media initiatives through partnerships with companies.
The administration is expected to unveil a new social media push this week, but it’s unclear how the president intends to use the platform to promote his agenda and promote his policies, including his travel ban and his tax plan.
