It has been a strange day at the United States Office of Government Ethics. It all began on a Wednesday morning when Donald Trump took over as the President of United States. The President tweeted about his abilities to hold vast business interests across the globe. His tweets signify the obvious importance of bringing in various business prospects. Being the President, he did not want to succumb to any conflict of interest with the numerous companies. He also said that the legal documents are on their way to remove him from his high-profile business entirely. These tweets, however, remained unclear to most of the people.
Soon, the substantiated Twitter accounts of the federal ethics office came into play. Their tweets spoke about the divesting of business by Trump. However, this was not something that the President promised to fulfill. The federal ethics office tweeted in such a way that, it exactly mimicked the president’s style. Soon there was a reply from OGE claiming it to be a right decision. With the responsive tweets, things seemed to grow weirder. At one point in time, all the tweets vanished. The social media platform was in a state of total confusion. Several onlookers suggested that it could be a hack or the ploy of an OGE official.
The issue was spoken about in-depth. The tweets were apprehended to be a hacker’s social media joke. It was also attributed to the action of a rogue official from OGE, who intended to poke at the President cynically. After a few hours, all the tweets were posted again. The reposted tweets brought in further confusions. Soon Seth Jaffe, the spokesman of OGE declared that it was not a hack. He also stated that the OGE congratulates the President for his goals. He has also appreciated the president’s way to resolve conflicts through divestiture. Jaffe also said that the OGE is willing to help the president in his cause.
