Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has his advisers worried he could go rogue and announce his vice presidential pick on Twitter, according to a new report. 

The billionaire’s campaign has privately discussed announcing Trump’s running mate as soon as this month to deflect from the Trump University controversy, according to Bloomberg.

But Trump says he’d “like to save” the announcement.  

“Give it the old fashioned way, right?” Trump said about revealing his pick at the convention in July. 

Trump has frequently come under fire for his lax Twitter practices, sometimes retweeting apparent white supremacists.  

He often uses the social media platform to respond to his critics, especially the media.
