Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, and Bossie, the president’s former deputy campaign manager, tear into a number of Trump appointees, including former National Economic Council director Gary CohnGary David CohnOcasio-Cortez rips presence of lobbyists at orientation event Incoming Dem lawmaker fires back at Trump's former economic adviser: ‘No Gary, YOU don't know what's coming’ Ocasio-Cortez criticizes congressional orientation program for featuring CEOs over labor leaders MORE and former staff secretary Rob Porter, in addition to Trump’s critics and Democratic opponents.


“There are far too many people in the deep reaches of the federal government who harbor as deep a hatred of Trump as does anyone from the Clinton/Obama cabal,” the authors write, according to the Post. “The thing is, they get away with it when no one is looking.”

The book also includes an interview with the president, in which Trump blasts the “Fake News” as the “greatest enemy of this country” and says that he should have fired former FBI director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyComey’s remarks about Trump dossier are not credible, says former FBI official Trump shock leaves Republicans anxious over 2019 Trump attorney general pick a prolific donor to GOP candidates, groups: report MORE sooner: “I should have fired him the day after I won and announced please get the hell out.”

Lewandowski and Bossie’s book, which the Post says “reads in part like Trump’s Twitter grievances in book form,” falls in line with Trump’s accusations of a “deep state” working against him inside the administration.

Earlier this year, a New York Times op-ed from an anonymous senior administration official described a team of some staffers working against Trump.

Its author, anticipating Trump’s response, pushed back on “deep state” accusations: “This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state."

“Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency” is set for release on Tuesday. Lewandowski and Bossie also authored a campaign memoir, “Let Trump be Trump,” which was released in 2017.
