Watchdog: Biden Team Illegally Deleted Tweet On Benefits Hike

  • Protect the Public’s Trust, a watchdog group, has alleged that the White House’s decision to delete a tweet earlier this week may have violated the Presidential Records Act.
  • The tweet celebrated the recent rise in Social Security benefits, claiming that seniors were “getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership.”
  • The tweet quickly was derided on Twitter because the 8.7% benefits hike was tied directly to inflation.
