Some of Trump's aides reportedly organized an 'intervention' in the past weeks in an attempt to get the President to slow his furiously typing fingers.

Trump's staff was reportedly worried about some of the inaccurate or unfounded claims that he has made on Twitter since becoming President, and decided to hold the intervention as the White House has come under intense scrutiny, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Specifically, his staffers were concerned about the accusation that the President made in march, in which he claimed former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

He later followed that up with another tweet, just minutes later, saying: 'I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!' 

Trump also referred to the previous president as a 'bad or sick guy'.

During the 'Twitter-vention,' aides reportedly explained to President Trump that certain comments, such as those made in March, on social media could 'paint him in a corner' both politically and legally. 

However, those efforts appear to have gone unnoticed. As recently as Thursday the President took to Twitter to criticize his opponents. 

At 4.52am, he wrote: 'This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!' referring to his growing frustrations with the investigation into Russian collusion.
