The One App Trump Has On His Phone Will Make You Cringe

POTUS embraces unitasking, for better or worse.

The good news is that the commander-in-chief only has one app on his iPhone, Mike Allen reports at Axios. The bad news: It’s Twitter.

“Top White House officials tell me the key to forcing a more disciplined President Trump (like the one onstage overseas) is limiting his screen time,” Allen explains. (Not unrelatedly, it’s also a key to raising a well-adjusted child.)

You have to applaud Trump’s aids for getting the President to Marie Kondo his smartphone. At Thrive we’re big on paring your apps down to only the ones that bring you joy, moderating your use with them, and making sure you’re the one controlling the device, rather than the device controlling you. Maybe that’s why, in the middle of a nine-day trip, the cantankerous, homebody executive is yet to set off an international incident.

One must wonder if he’s still writing his tweets, though: “All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and in peace” sure doesn’t sound like him.
