Like most observers, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders expects President Donald Trump’s twitter silence to be short lived.

After being asked for a reason for Trump’s rare half-day silence at Tuesday’s White House briefing, Sanders said that he has been “incredibly engaged,” sending messages through his staff. “He has also put out a number of tweets over the last week and I think you can expect him to continue to do that,” she said.

Sure enough, as Sanders was speaking, Trump’s account tweeted about an opioid memorial, ending the drought.
