Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims in her upcoming book that President Trump referred to his eldest son as a “f— up” for releasing emails about the 2016 Trump Tower campaign meeting with a Russian lawyer with connections to the Kremlin.
“He is such a f— up,” the president allegedly said, according to Manigault Newman, after he saw his son had posted screenshots of emails setting up the meeting. “He screwed up again, but this time, he’s screwing us all, big-time!”
The remarks were reported by the New York Daily News, which obtained a copy of the book.
The White House has repeatedly accused Manigault Newman, who was fired from her position working for Trump late last year, of lying in order to sell books.
The claim is one of several that have already made headlines ahead of the book’s release.
