Aides to President Trump reportedly organized an “intervention” recently in an attempt to get their boss to curb his infamous tweetstorms.
Trump’s staff had been worried about some of the inaccurate claims he made on Twitter and held the Twitter-vention in the past few weeks as The White House has come under intense scrutiny, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday night.
Most notably, the staff was worried about the accusation Trump made in March that former President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, the Journal said. …
… During the White House Twitter “intervention,” the aides explained to Trump that certain comments made on social media could “paint him in a corner” in both political and legal matters, the Journal said.
