Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus thinks his old boss — President Donald Trump — has the right idea when it comes to tweeting.
During an interview Saturday with MSNBC host and conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt, Priebus noted that during Trump’s presidential campaign, he and others would often advise the controversial candidate to more carefully consider what he should and should not post to Twitter.
“I would be the guy, ‘Don’t tweet this. Do tweet that. Don’t this, don’t that.’ And others chimed in, even the first lady and the family,” Priebus said, according to the Washington Examiner.
