KISSIMMEE: President Barack Obama took a jab at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Sunday at a rally in Florida after learning the Trumps campaign staff took away his Twitter privileges to keep him from causing more harm in the final days before the US Election.

The Republican candidate has often counterproductively taken jabs are his opponents using his Twitter accounts @realDonaldTrump and in order to avoid Trump from causing any self inflicted damage his staff deprived him of access to his Twitter account, the NYT reported.

Seizing the opportunity, President Obama told the rally that if he (Trump) cannot be trusted with handling a Twitter account, he cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes.

“Now, you may have heard that – this was just announced, I just read it, so I cant confirm its true, but apparently [Trumps] campaign has taken away his Twitter, Obama said to laughs. In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said, Were just gonna take away your Twitter.”

“Now, if somebody cant handle a Twitter account, they cant handle the nuclear codes. If somebody starts tweeting at 3 in the morning because SNL made fun of you, you cant handle the nuclear codes.”
