Donald Trump revelation: Authors of tell-all novels speak about POTUS
Donald Trump is currently seeking reelection, which is now less than a week away. With millions of Americans already voting or have voted, several authors of the tell-all books about Trump have since weighed in on what may happen should he win a second term.
Journalist Bob Woodward, Trump’s niece Mary Trump, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, and former national security adviser John Bolton spoke to The Guardian about Trump and their predictions should the Republican incumbent get reelected. Woodward’s latest book, Rage, is made up of a series of interviews with Trump revealed his deliberate downplaying of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Woodward expressed that he was anxious and concerned due to Trump’s remarks about wanting former president Barack Obama and former vice president Joe Biden prosecuted and charged. Woodward also cited Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the election should Biden win and casting doubt on the electoral process as another cause for concern.
The president’s niece Mary Trump, who wrote Too Much and Never Enough, also warned that there would no longer be a democracy should her uncle win a second term. While predicting that Trump will likely be imprisoned once he leaves office, Mary Trump also said that her uncle is scared, and his recent actions have been driven by fear and panic as he knows he is losing.
Bolton, whose book included revelations that were used during the impeachment trials, shared that Trump seemed to admire authoritarian leaders like Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. Bolton revealed that Trump would only think about the political implications of the policies that would be implemented. Scaramucci, who wrote Trump: The Blue-Collar President, also had a warning in case Trump won a second term, saying that the president will try and destroy American society and take down the country’s democracy.
Trump’s 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl recently aired, showing the clips that both the White House decided to release prior to the broadcast and the actual broadcast. Trump infamously stormed off the interview especially when Stahl challenged his previous comments about suburban women voters as well as his campaign rallies that have been referred to as “super spreader rallies.” Trump supporters would be seen as not practicing social distancing guidelines and without face masks.
Trump then told Stahl how negative she was being towards him about his campaign rallies. He also looked especially irritated when she noted how his rallies used to be much bigger.
