Trump tweeted on Monday to his more than 65 million followers:


Spicer, 48, joined the cast of the celebrity TV dance competition in August. The announcement that he would be one of the high-profile figures shaking a leg on the long-running ABC series stirred controversy, with "Dancing With the Stars" host Tom Bergeron saying he would have to "agree to disagree" about selecting political guests for the show.

Spicer, a former Republican National Committee communications director, worked as White House press secretary for approximately seven months in 2017.
