On Sunday, United States President Barack Obama mocked Donald Trump post the New York Times report that Republican staff took him off Twitter. Trump was reportedly shooting himself in the foot on social media and since October 20, he has been kept off it.

Obama was speaking for Hillary Clinton in Kissimmee, Florida, and he said, "In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said: We're just going to take away his Twitter. Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear codes. If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes."

There are reports that all of Trump's tweets post October 20 seemed to have been written or edited by someone else. Now, it looks like he just dictates the tweets to his staff who then put it up. The last tweet by Trump read: "Why didn't Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions - she secretly used them! Crooked Hillary."

Trump's aggressive tweets have not gone down well with many. One of his tweets on seeing Air Force One on the tarmac on November 3 read: "Why is he campaigning instead of creating jobs and fixing Obamacare? Get back to work." Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks added "...for the American people" to the end.
