Fox Host Lays Into Trump - Bad Twitter Habit Is The Real Problem

President Donald Trump has been quite active on social media of late, as it seems like he’s had plenty of things to get off of his chest. That’s perfectly understandable, but there may be a better way to handle it when you’re the commander-in-chief. Every time Trump clicks submit, he’s upending the news cycle and inspiring endless analysis about what he said. That’s just one of the many problems that Trump is opening up with his social media posting habits, and even some of his staunchest supporters are starting to realize that someone needs to rein him in.

As Yahoo shares, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto is one of the many commentators that have laid into Trump over his Twitter addiction recently, but the criticism seems to be falling on deaf ears. Trump even seems to enjoy the calls for him to stop posting on social media, and he seems to believe that it’s the most effective way for him to speak to the American people.

That may be true in certain circumstances, but as with everything in life, there’s a time and a place for everything. For example, the wake of the terror attacks in London on Saturday was not the time or the place for the President of the United States to be sharing things on social media. By all means, have a statement released from the White House as quickly as possible in the wake of such a scary incident, but let’s take some care to do it in a presidential fashion.

That’s just one of the examples Cavuto was referring to when he called out Trump, and there’s a lot of truth to what the host had to say.

“Mr. President, it is not the fake news media that’s your problem. It’s you,” Cavuto said.

Trump has taken great pains to prove that the mainstream media refuses to give him a fair shake, and he’s right on the money about that. However, he’s doing himself no favors by posting what amounts to brain dumps on social media. As we’ve all learned, the things we post on social media may not always come across as we intended, no matter how much sense they make within the confines of our own heads.

“Use these critiques you’re now hearing from usually friendly and supportive allies as sort of like an intervention,” Cavuto continued. “Because firing off these angry missives and tweets risk your political destruction.”

For any great leader, there comes a point in time when you must adapt to changing circumstances. Digging your feet into the ground to do it the way you want may not always be the best course of action. While your instincts may not have failed you in the past, there comes a time in all leaders' lives when they must rely on the advice of trusted allies.

“They’re not the problem, Mr. President. Like I said, these days, you are,” Cavuto added.

Those expecting the president to change overnight will likely be sorely disappointed, but it would be awfully refreshing to see him stop chasing likes and shares for a while.
