In her new tell-all book titled, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” Newman dishes on Trump’s morning routine to tan. “He prefers to do it in the morning so he ‘looks good’ all day,” the former White House staffer wrote.
The tanning bed is reportedly kept in his private residence, and #MelaniaTrump doesn’t mind as she often sleeps in her own room. The tanning bed is so precious to Trump that Newman says chief usher Angella Reid was fired back in May 2017 because she carelessly transported the machine. Manigault also took a shot at Trump’s weight and diet calling him “clearly obese.” She supported her statement saying he drinks eight cans of Diet Coke “at least.” She went on to say, she’s given him a study about the health risk of his behavior but he refused to listen.
The former “Apprentice” cast member also mentioned a soda-request button that is built in his office. “He just pushes a button in a wooden box on his desk. He can summon anything with that button,” she wrote. “Whenever I went in to brief him, he’d push the button and get us Diet Cokes.” Trump has yet to respond to any of Newman’s allegations but did thank General Kelly for “firing that dog” in a tweet on Aug. 14.
Newman’s Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House is now available at bookstores and digital retailers.
