A group of disgruntled White House staffers claim they have access to president Donald Trump’s behind-the-scenes policies and they are more than willing to share them with the rest of the world on Twitter.
Since Trump’s inauguration, several anti-Trump rogue groups have mushroomed on the social media. These groups claim they know Trump’s own version of the truths his aides present to the public. The most notable group is @RoguePOTUSStaff which posted a wealth of tweets with inside information on the newly minted president.
Experts caution the public to take these bits of information with a pinch of salt as there is no way of verifying their authenticity. However, the new Twitter channel, which was created on Jan. 26, accrued nearly 298,000 followers in less than a week.
An ‘Unholy Trinity’ Reportedly Running the White House
The account’s first tweet on Jan. 26 claims that the new president wants to be remembered as King. A day later, the group described the Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and the new administration’s chief of staff Reince Priebus as an “unholy trinity”.
A tweet from a day prior claims the new POTUS was very pleased about his top counselor Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts” remark. Trump reportedly thinks the line is kind of dumb but it drew people’s attention.
According to another tweet, Trump considers the White House “a little drab” for his taste, while another tweet claims the POTUS uses an official and an external email account for “information control”.
On Jan. 29, RoguePOTUSStaff tweeted that the first week in office “fully overwhelmed” the new president. After one federal court in New York suspended a part of his travel ban, Trump was reportedly “fuming”. He instructed staffers to ignore the order and proceed with the ban.
POTUS fuming after judge order last night. Suggested having agents to “do it anyway” & ignore order. Preibus said to be at wits end.

On Jan. 28, the group tweeted Pence agreed to monitor a phone conversation between the president and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Trump reportedly didn’t like the idea but the “unholy trinity” convinced him to give in. In a second tweet, the group claims the “unholy trinity” was worried that Trump hadn’t been entirely truthful about the Russian leader’s blackmail attempts. After the call, Trump’s aides were still concerned about the issue so they urged the billionaire to let them help him if Putin tried to compromise him. Trump reportedly declined any help.
The group thinks Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is confident the president speaks the truth. RoguePOTUSStaff claims there is an ongoing competition between Bannon and Priebus over the White House’s control.
On Jan. 27, a tweet suggests the freshly inaugurated President asked for people with advanced Photoshop skills to doctor inauguration photos. The same day, another tweet claimed Trump secretly plans to hurt Mexico’s economy via an import tariff to fund the border wall. The masterplan is to force Mexico to foot the bill as the POTUS knows the border tax alone will never pay for the structure.
According to other tweets, Trump intends to deploy an investigation into voter fraud allegations in the states he lost. And the plan is the work of the unholy trinity with the precise purpose to strengthen “turnout control” efforts.
However despite the revelations, the bottom line is “DO NOT accuse POTUS without evidence. Even a bad POTUS is still a powerful POTUS,” in the rogue group’s own words.
White House survival 101: DO NOT accuse POTUS without evidence. Even a bad POTUS is still a powerful POTUS.
