“The soon-to-be-published “Anonymous” insider’s account of life in the White House includes a number of bizarre, ominous, and expletive moments from Donald Trump’s tenure as president, among them, that he viciously mocked immigrant mothers coming into the US, pushed for a purge of federal judges who struck down his first Muslim travel ban, and stubbornly refused to confront the Saudi ruling family over the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
According to leaked excerpts first published in the Washington Post, the anonymous author’s overall indictment of Trump finds him grossly incompetent and materially unfit for the office of president, likening his White House leadership style to a “12-year-old in an air traffic control tower.”
However, the book’s author, who claims to be an official who works or has worked in the Trump White House, has intentionally left out key details that could be used to unmask his or her identity. As a result, it is impossible to independently corroborate the allegations made in the book. The White House has already dismissed the author as a “coward” and the book as a “work of fiction.
