Kellyanne Conway defended Donald Trump's use of Twitter, saying the president is promoting "the democratization of information," The Hill reported.
"His social media platform is incredibly powerful — him cutting out the middle man has angered the middle man but that's okay," said Conway, a counselor to Trump.
Her comments came at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority conference, according to The Hill.
And she added: "Why shouldn't all of us in this day and age receive the same information at the same time from the president of the United States if you are able to?"
Trump has been criticized for being aggressive on Twitter or posting unconfirmed information, the website reported.
On Friday, Trump took to Twitter to blast fired FBI Director James Comey's testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Conway said Trump's use of Twitter allows "the CEO . . . the stay-at-home-mom . . . (and) the plumber out on the job" to all hear directly from the president.
And just last week, Conway emphasized a similar point while addressing the New York State Conservative Party in Manhattan, according to the New York Post.
"He wants to speak directly to the people," she said of Trump's Twitter use.
