Starting next week, the use of all personal devices for both guests and staff will be banned in the West Wing of the White House, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Thursday.

"The security and integrity of the technology systems at the White House is a top priority for the Trump administration and therefore starting next week the use of all personal devices for both guests and staff will no longer be allowed in the West Wing. Staff will be able to conduct business on their government-issued devices and continue working hard on behalf of the American people."
