The Washington Post published quotes on Thursday night from “A Warning,” the eagerly awaited book by an anonymous White House official.
The 259-page book, due to be released on November 19, will give an insight into the Trump administration and suggest chaos scenes behind the walls of the White House. The post office received a copy before its publication.
It is unclear whether the author, who is run under the pseudonym Anonymous, is a current or former White House official. “Anonymous” gained in importance after an explosive device published in the New York Times entitled “I am part of the resistance in the Trump administration.”
The author uses the anonymous nickname in the book and states that it is “this debate is not about me”.
“It’s about us,” wrote the author. “It’s about how we want the presidency to reflect our country, and this should be the focus of discussion, and some will call it cowardice.” My feelings are not hurt by the reproach. Nor am I prepared to associate myself with the criticism of President Trump. ”
“I can do that in due course,” the author continued.
In the book, the author portrays Trump’s alleged words and behavior behind the scenes.
In the post office story, the anonymous author wrote about the alleged rage that erupts after the President’s tweets and likened it to that of nurses trying to catch a pantsless older uncle. “Anonymous” also claimed in the book that high-ranking officials sometimes wake up “in a full panic” after the president published shocking tweets overnight.
The author also claimed in the book that Trump makes misogynist comments that trigger “unpleasant silence.”
“He comments make-up,” claims the author, according to The Post. “He jokes about the weight, he criticizes the clothes, he questions the tenacity of women in and around his orbit, he talks to experienced professionals with words like” sweetheart “and” honey. “That’s just how a boss should not behave in the working environment. ”
The Post reported that “Anonymous” also claimed that Trump considered it “stupid” to “seek out” Saudi Arabia’s fight with Saudi Arabia in 2018 after the death of Washington Post’s columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, by Saudi agents.
“The oil would rise to $ 150 a barrel, Jesus,” Anonymous wrote, allegedly quoting Trump.
The Post also notes that some of the allegations of White House incidents are unfounded, including a claim where high-ranking officials were certain that Vice-President Mike Pence would support the use of the 25th Amendment if a majority of the Cabinet agrees ,
Pence rejected the claim and stated that he had never heard of the 25th amendment during my time as Vice-President. And why should I do that? His spokeswoman tweeted and called the claim “false news”.
The author also returned some of her contributions to The Times in 2018.
“I was wrong about the ‘silent resistance’ within the Trump administration,” wrote the author. “Unelected bureaucrats and counterparts would never steer Donald Trump in the right direction or refine his evil leadership style – he’s who he is.”
Prior to the publication of the book, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham rejected the authenticity of the author and the book, calling it a “work of fiction.”
“The cowards who wrote this book did not write their name on it because it’s nothing but lies,” she wrote in an email to The Post. “Real authors turn to their subjects to verify the facts – but this person is hiding, which makes it impossible to be a true writer.” Reporters writing about this farce should have the journalistic integrity to complete the book Treat as what it is – a work of fiction. ”
The Department of Justice also sent a letter to the editors pointing out that the book might violate “one or more non-disclosure agreements.”
