On the same day as President Trump returned from overseas and went back to tweeting about fake news, former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum appeared on CNN to say if President Trump’s tweeting routine continues it could backfire in the sense that it will make it difficult for the president and his team to pursue the administration’s agenda.
In his Sunday appearance on “State of the Union,” Rick Santorum said the Trump could and should be a great president. However, he said the administration needs to focus on “getting their agenda passed,” but with the constant flow of tweets about the media and being treated unfairly, the Trump agenda gets lost in the mire.
“If you tweet every day and complain about the media and complain about how you are being treated, you’re going to be sidetracked and you’re not going to get your deals done. That’s the message,” said Santorum.
“The last nine days [Trump’s trip overseas] have hopefully shown the president that if you stay on message, if you stick to the script, if you focus on policy, if you drive home the messages that you talked about during the campaign and that people in America are excited about, you can be a great president,” said Santorum.
In addition to running for president twice, Santorum served as a senator for the state of Pennsylvania.
