White House personal cell phone ban starts next week

During Thursday's press briefing, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders whether there is a "cause and effect" between the programming on Fox & Friends and President Trump's tweeting, a well-plumbed storyline.

"I don't think it's a hangout for globalists", Mnuchin said from the podium, referring to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which President Donald Trump will participate in later this month.

"That's why he supports the 702 but has concern with FISA more generally", she said.

A "senior White House official" tells ABC News that the ban on all personal smart devices is an attempt by the Trump administration to stop leaks and increase employee productivity.

Mnuchin, who will lead the USA economic delegation to Davos, said the Trump team will discuss the "America first" philosophy and the president will speak there about "reciprocal, free and fair trade", a favorite topic.

Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, whose upcoming departure was announced in December, plans to leave after Vice President Mike Pence's upcoming trip to the Middle East, a White House official said.

Being considered "fake news" by President Trump is somewhat an honor for many journalists, as it usually means your reporting is spot on and accurate.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", she said. Acosta has covered the Obama and Trump White Houses for CNN since 2013.

On Capitol Hill, Democrats were not impressed.

So, weather permitting, staffers will still be able to stay up-to-date with the latest Twitter happenings during the day, just with less convenience than with previous White House administrations. "We don't. I don't".

The briefing followed an unprecedented move by President Trump who allowed the press to attend almost an hour of a bipartisan meeting at the White House discussing immigration, according to The Daily Caller.
