Trump Team Tries to Curb Twitter Habit

White House aides are attempting to curb President Donald Trump's Twitter habits, according to The Washington Post. 

The Post reported that it interviewed 22 senior administration officials, outside advisers, and the president's allies and confidants about attempting to control Trump's impulses.

Trump's aides have resigned themselves to keeping a watch over instead of stopping his frequent posts on his Twitter account, The Post noted.

Trump frequently rebukes the investigation into alleged ties between Russia and his presidential campaign, calling it a "witch hunt."

One method, according to The Post, is early-morning phone calls with his legal team to discuss the investigation. However, The Post interviewed an adviser about whether the method was working, and the adviser paused for a few seconds, then laughed.

Republicans from outside the White House voiced concerns about the president's behavior to The Post.

"The president's psychology is what's driving so much of this, and it's alarming because it shows a lack of self-control, a tremendous tropism… he seems to draw psychic energy from creating chaos and disorder."

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg weighed in on Trump's Twitter habits on CNN Wednesday. 

"The president just has to get it out of his mind, stop tweeting, and focus on running the government, and let the investigation go on, because without that, he'll always have this problem," Bloomberg said.
