Two advisers to President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump considered withdrawing Kavanaugh nomination over beer comments, being 'too apologetic': Meadows book Judge halts Biden vaccine mandate for federal contractors nationwide Democrats offer bill to raise debt ceiling, avoid filibuster MORE who are no longer in the White House are alleging disloyalty among members of the administration in a new book.

Corey LewandowskiCorey LewandowskiJudge blocks Spicer, Vought bid to return to Naval Academy board New Trump super PAC formed after accusations of misconduct The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Alibaba - Democrats still at odds over Biden agenda MORE and David Bossie label a number of officials “embedded enemies of President Trump,” according to The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of their book.

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 CohnHow Biden should sell his infrastructure bill On The Money: Wall Street zeros in on Georgia runoffs | Seven states sue regulator over 'true lender' rule on interest rates | 2021 deficit on track to reach .3 trillion Former Trump economic aide Gary Cohn joins IBM 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 ComeyTrump draws attention with admission he 'fired Comey' Countering the ongoing Republican delusion How Biden should sell his infrastructure bill 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.
