Trump staff staged 'intervention' to tone down the president's tweets: report

White House aides are telling President Trump to dial it back on social media, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

In what is being dubbed a Twitter "intervention," Trump's staff reportedly called a meeting to discuss his social media habits.

His advisors have reportedly had enough with his oftentimes controversial unfiltered tweets and are concerned they could be used against him in the future.

The Journal reports that Trump staffers said his messages may "paint him into a corner," leading to political and legal troubles.

One tweet reportedly mentioned in the meeting was the one in which the president claimed Trump Tower had been wiretapped by the Obama administration. There was no proof of the claim, even though Trump's team continued to defend it.

Before taking office, he told "60 Minutes," "I'm going to be very restrained."

Yet the tweets have continued, including one in which he claimed he was the victim of "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"
