Campaign manager for Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States, has said it is not true that his staff has stopped him from tweeting.

Trump has exhibited unusual restraint on social media in the final days of the campaign.

The New York Times reported on Sunday that aides "have finally wrested away" his Twitter account.

President Barack Obama seized on the report at a voter rally in Florida, telling the crowd that anyone who cannot be trusted with a Twitter account should not be trusted with control of the America's nuclear weapons.

When asked yesterday about the Times report by NBC's 'Today Show', campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said: "No, it's not true."
