The White House is reportedly mulling whether to have lawyers read over President Donald Trump’s tweets before they are posted. A Trump adviser told The Wall Street Journal that the goal would be to ensure that tweets “don’t go from the president’s mind out to the universe.” Former top adviser Barry Bennett said he would be “shocked” if Trump agreed to have his tweets lawyered before posting them. The WSJ also reported that Trump is “actively discussing major” staff shakeups in the White House for when he returns from his first major overseas trip, which brought him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Rome, Brussels, and now Taormina, Sicily, where he is participating in the G7 Summit. The administration is also reportedly considering scaling back press briefings amid continued questions over the investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Trump associates and Russian operatives.
