Donald Trump’s days of tweeting tirades at his opponents are over, at least for the time being. According to The New York Times, the Republican presidential nominee no longer has control of his Twitter account and his tweets are now being pre-screened by campaign staffers to make sure Trump doesn’t go on a crazy tweeting rant before election day.
According to the report, campaign aides are working overtime to keep the candidate on message in the remaining 48 hours before Americans cast their ballots on Tuesday.
After hearing the news that the GOP candidate has had his Twitter privileges revoked, President Obama issued a well-deserved response while campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Kissimmee, Florida.
“In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said: ‘We’re just going to take away your Twitter.’ Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear code,” Obama said. “If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning ’cause SNL made fun of you, then you can’t handle the nuclear code.”
Florida is a must-win state for Clinton. Early vote numbers show her winning by a sizable margin, fueled by the latino vote.
