The president said Wednesday he didn’t have an “overwhelming feeling” about the tweet that sent his star-struck wife and daughter to the hospital in the middle of the night.
“The President was not personally upset,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“The President’s thoughts are with his wife and his two young children as they recover.”
The tweet from the president’s personal account was retweeted by his daughter Ivanka, who is a senior adviser to the president.
In the tweet, Trump accused the actress of not showing up for work, adding: “We all want the best for my wife and kids.
She is doing great!”
Hours later, Trump tweeted that the actor and the actress were “together” in New York City and had been in “a great position.”
“The two of them are together in New Jersey,” the president tweeted.
“They are very close and I wish them all the best.”
White House press secretaries were quick to respond to the tweet Wednesday morning.
“There is no doubt in my mind that the President was saddened by the news that Sarah Jessica and her family were injured and his thoughts and prayers are with them,” Sanders said.
“Sarah Jessica was a strong woman who was loved by millions of Americans and loved by the President.
Sarah was the kind of person who cared deeply about her family and the people she loved and was always ready to lend her hand when needed.””
We will continue to work closely with the Secret Service to support them as they heal,” Sanders added.
A White House spokeswoman said Trump did not see the tweet.
“He was in New Orleans to deliver a speech,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in an email.
“He is grateful for the outpouring of love and support for Sarah Jessica, who has been with him since his inauguration.”
The White House did not respond to a request for comment on the tweets.
Trump is scheduled to speak to the nation Wednesday morning at the American Legion Hall in Nashville.
Trump also tweeted Wednesday morning about his own injuries, saying that he had been hit by a car in New Hampshire and needed to be taken to the emergency room.
“I am going to the ER and I have a broken leg, broken nose, a broken hand, a dislocated shoulder, a bruised knee and a broken arm,” he wrote.
“I will be OK.”
The president also took to Twitter to respond: “Thank you for the prayers, but also the kind words.”
In a tweet Wednesday afternoon, Trump said he was going to speak with his family on Thursday morning.
He was in his office in the West Wing, but his office was empty.
The president was reportedly told to stay in his house for several hours Wednesday, though Sanders said the president was not staying in his home.
“When the President leaves his house, he will be going to a room where there will be no media coverage,” she said.
