White House aides organized an official Twitter invention a few weeks ago in an attempt to explain to President Trump why his all-around-the-clock and sometimes baseless tweets are working against him, according to a report published late Friday.
The staffers staged a sit-down "intervention" in which they tried to reason with Trump to exercise restraint when it came to responding to accusations.
Among Trump's most troubling Twitter rants, aides were most concerned with his March claim that former President Barack Obama had wiretapped his campaign's Manhattan office last year.
The staffers specifically warned their boss that his social media messages would "paint him into a corner" legally and politically speaking, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Trump, known for not liking criticism, may be looking to get some new faces in the White House communications office in light of the Twitter feedback. Former campaign associates David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski were spotted at the White House earlier this week.
