Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) took to Twitter on Thursday where he seemed to suggest that Donald Trump needs to be watched at all times, almost as if he were a toddler.
In the tweet, Grassley pleaded to have someone in the White House make Trump read a column by the Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Henninger, presumable to influence the president’s trade policy.
“Whoever keeps watch on [President Trump] at [the White House] have the economist there especially Navarro read WSJ oped by Henninger,” Grassley wrote. “This is what I’ve been preaching to the President for two years. President would benefit from reading it.”

Chuck, this is literally the job of Congress. Congress is supposed to keep an eye on the POTUS.

If we need someone “keeping watch” over a President, maybe he doesn’t need to be President
