Leon Panetta: First Thing I’d Advise Trump Is to Get Rid of Tweeting Capability
‘The fist thing is get rid of that tweeting capability and really rely on speaking on issues where he has backup from a White House staff’

EXCERPT:

PANETTA : “Well, he probably wouldn’t want to hear anything that I said. But the fist thing would be to get rid of that tweeting capability and really rely on speaking on issues where he has backup from a White House staff. Secondly, there are too many points of power in the White House staff right now. Too many competing areas within the White House. I’m a believer that you only have one chief of staff and that the chief of staff should be responsible for handling the other staffs. I don’t like people wandering around the White House who have no -- no specific responsibilities. So they wind up going to meetings, they talk but they really don’t have any responsibility. That was part of the problem I faced when I became chief of staff to Bill Clinton. I think he’s got — he’s got to focus on better organization within the White House so that it gives him the support he needs as president.”
