MSNBC anchor Katy Tur said her stomach churned and she felt bile in her throat upon learning Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden slams Trump over golf gif hitting Clinton Trump Jr. declines further Secret Service protection: report Report: Mueller warned Manafort to expect an indictment MORE had won the 2016 presidential election, also stating the Republican candidate had "endangered her life" at campaign rallies.

Tur recalled her feelings in her new book, "Unbelievable," released Tuesday. "The room goes wavy. My stomach churns,” Tur says. “I can feel the bile in the back of my throat.

“I’ve heard him insult a war hero, brag about grabbing women by the pussy, denigrate the judicial system, demonize immigrants, fight with the pope, doubt the democratic process, advocate torture and war crimes, tout the size of his junk in a presidential debate, trash the media, and endanger my life,” Tur continued.

Tur, 33, adds she fears Trump will be in office 27 years from now at age 98 because he'll find a way to avoid the two-term limit.

"Does anyone really believe he’ll respect term limits? I have a vision of myself at sixty, Trump at a hundred, in some midwestern convention hall. The children of his 2016 supporters are spitting on me,” Tur writes.

Tur was awarded an anchor position on an afternoon news program on MSNBC in January after covering the Trump campaign for 18 months.

The president tweeted on Tuesday saying the “people writing books” about him "know nothing about me & have zero access."

He did not mention Tur by name in the tweet, but did criticize her during several speeches throughout the campaign, calling her a "third-rate reporter," "disgraceful" and "not nice."
