Surrogates on Monday unveiled their new strategy for dealing with their inability to curtain Trump's tweeting: berating reporters for discussing seriously the President of the United States' remarks on Twitter.
President Donald Trump's Twitter account had a very bad day on Tuesday. Fifty-three percent of Republicans and 51 percent of voters who helped elect Trump said the president tweets too much - increases of 11 points and 14 points, respectively.
Neiss' objective is to bring more attention to the fact that "these tweets are not merely tweets but presidential statements delivered on Twitter".
"He's in a mess and is blaming anyone around him - Sessions, (White House Counsel Don) McGahn, you name it, depending on the day", the Trump adviser said. "At its core, it's pretty straightforward", he added.

"I thought today's efforts between myself and the RNC were incredibly successful in pushing back against the fake media", Trump Jr. said.
Dan Scavino Jr., the director of the president's social media, tweeted out a baffling reaction to the institute's letter a few hours after it was sent. Sessions was the first and, for many months, the only US senator to back Trump's campaign.
The cloud of investigation the very thing a White House war room would be set up to handle has put even some of Trump's backers and potential defenders in an uncomfortable position. That, according to calculations made by the one and only Philip Bump of the Washington Post, is the fifth-longest Twitter outage for Trump since he announced his candidacy in June 2015.
Trump disbanded the traditional "war room" setting with top aides and advisors in favor his own personal use of his Twitter account.
Spicer's counterpart Sarah Huckabee Sanders also lamented the media obsession with the tweets and celebrated them as a way for Trump to speak directly and unfiltered to his followers, but regretting that the media obsesses "over every period, dot". "I think it's disastrous for him on the governing side", said political analyst John Jackson, with the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute.
Trump has been insistent that it's the news media whose at fault for the negative portrayal of his tweets. Slightly more voters said that exiting the agreements would be good instead of bad for the American economy and businesses, but a much larger margin anxious about the withdrawal's impact on the environment and America's standing in the world.
