President Trump appeared to have violated a long standing rule put in place during the Reagan Administration that no government officials are to publicly report on the latest jobs report findings until one full hour after they are released, to not be able to manipulate the market. Trump retweeted a Drudge Report tweet on the jobs report 11 minutes after the report's release. Retweeting is legally a grey area for the rule; it's never needed to be considered until now.
