Former president Donald Trump described New York Times‘Maggie Haberman is a “worm” in an att*ck on her upcoming book about his presidency.
Haberman’s new book, A man of trust: the rise of Donald Trump and the collapse of America, will be released next week, but excerpts have been widely publicized in the media.
The anecdotes from the book seem to portray the former president in a bad light, including the claim that he considered firing his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner via a tweet. They were then advisers to the White House.
Trump att*cked Haberman, a senior political reporter in New York Times, on their Truth Social platform on Friday.
Maggot Hagerman [sic] harassed unfunded liability New York Times is my self-proclaimed biographer, despite completely wrongly drawing conclusions about Russia, Russia, Russia and the Mueller Report, and refused to write about the FACTS that Democrats spied on my campaign, lied to Congress, deceived and lied to the FISA Court, ”wrote the former president.
He meant the investigation of special adviser Robert Mueller into the alleged links between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, as well as the fact that two warrants obtained to investigate Trump’s former election adviser Carter Page were later found invalid. because the government committed “substantial distortions” in their quest to obtain them.
“Maggot was also cheated on impeachment # 1 scam and impeachment scam # 2 and said in 2016 that” Trump will NOT run for president. ” She is a bad writer with very bad sources! ” Trump added.
Haberman’s book also says that the former president threatened to go for her phone call records to identify leaks.
“Trump, angry with my published stories, would roar that he wanted administration officials to get my phone details and identify my sources,” wrote Haberman.
According to Haberman’s account, the former president also came up with an excuse not to disclose his tax returns during the 2016 elections while flying.
“Well, you know my taxes are audited. I always have an audit, ”said Trump. “So I mean, I can just say, ‘I’ll release them when I’m no longer in control. “Because I’ll never be under control.”
Trump has repeatedly said that he was unable to publish his 2016 tax returns because he was under scrutiny, although there were no legal obstacles to doing so. He became the first presidential candidate from a large party to not issue his tax returns since the practice began in the 1970s by President Richard Nixon.
Trump previously criticized Haberman’s book in a statement released in February, saying, “Another fake book by a reporter who knows nothing about me, Maggot Haberman of New York Times, I make up stories about my relationship with foreign leaders. He says I am talking to Kim Jong Un of North Korea, but not to other world leaders. Evil!”
Newsweek asked Haberman and Trump’s office for comment.
