President Trump has just a single app installed on his iPhone right now.| Yes — you guessed it — it’s Twitter, according to Axios reporter Mike Allen, who cited a conversation with top White House officials.According to Trump staffers, the key to keeping POTUS on task is limiting his down time, meaning less time to watch cable news and for firing off tweets. Loading up his schedule on his first international trip has worked well to this so far, according to Allen’s report.
“Top White House officials tell me the key to forcing a more disciplined President Trump (like the one onstage overseas) is limiting his screen time,” wrote Allen. “In Trump’s case, it’s curtailing his time watching TV and banging out tweets on his iPhone.”
In the past week, Trump has tweeted 18 times — an average of about 2.5 per day — lower than usual. He has mostly shared pictures to highlight his trips to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican. The week prior, while dealing with the fallout over firing FBI Director James Comey, Trump tweeted 28 times.
