AUSTIN, Texas — — President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed is “a disaster” and “is a disaster” as it “is the largest waste of personal time” as well as “failing to respond to the needs of the American people,” a senior White House official told Breitbart News on Tuesday.
The official said the White House has been monitoring Twitter for the past two weeks as a result of Trump’s frequent use of the social media platform.
As of Wednesday, the official said, “there is no way to be certain” whether the White Senate is using the President’s account.
In February, the White Department’s Office of the Assistant to the President and Assistant to President for Strategic Initiatives announced that it would be conducting a study to examine Twitter’s use by President Trump.
At the time, the office was working on how to manage the President.
On Tuesday, the senior official told the Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow that the office’s efforts to identify the White house’s usage of the President is a “top priority.”
“We’re looking at the best way to use Twitter for administration purposes and we’re not seeing it,” the official told Marlow.
“We’re seeing this as the biggest potential waste of the president’s time.
And we’re just going to keep looking at Twitter.”
Trump’s Twitter handle has been a major topic of discussion during the administration’s first year in office.
While many have hailed the President as a hero, others have called into question his authority to direct the military and national security apparatus.
“I just think we’re seeing a president who is not taking his job seriously,” Marlow told Breitbart.
“I think that’s very worrisome.”
As Breitbart News reported, the President was the first person to tweet about the National Football League during the 2017 National Football Awards.
The tweet was followed by the words, “I love the NFL.
It’s the greatest team in the world, but it’s also the worst.
I can’t watch games with my eyes closed anymore.
We need NFL ratings to go up, and they’re going to do it.
It would be the greatest thing in the universe if they went up.
I am so happy that I get to be in charge of ratings, I think that would be a total disaster.”
In a March 27 tweet, Trump suggested that his Twitter account was “a joke,” but later acknowledged that it was a “great service” and called it a “disaster” that the President had been using it “without doing anything wrong.”
Breitbart News has also reported on several other instances in which the President has used his Twitter handle for his own benefit.
During his first week in office, Trump tweeted out a list of the top priorities for the government and his top five items on his to-do list.
The list included “ending DACA,” which would have allowed illegal immigrants to obtain work permits.
