Trump’s secrets revealed in tell-all book

Former President Donald Trump’s secrets revealed in tell-all book, with claims he planned to blockade himself in the White House

There are new reports Donald Trump had plans to remain in the White House well after his 2020 election loss. A new book reveals the former president intended to prevent incoming President Joe Biden from taking over office.

Maggie Haberman’s “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” is set to hit shelves on October 4. Its release comes as investigators continue their probe into Trump’s refusal to accept the election result.

The tell-all book draws on stories from White House aides. They say Trump refused to make way for Biden, even after the election had been called.

“I’m just not going to leave, We’re never leaving, How can you leave when you won an election?” Trump told one aide.

This is the first time Trump’s desire to remain in the White House has been reported. It adds damming details to the post-election period in which the controversial figure claimed the election was stolen off him. It was this stance which inevitably led to the January 6 Capitol riot.

The House select committee investigating January 6 will hold further hearings in the coming months. The committee will then release a final report into Trump’s role in the attack.

Haberman is a CNN political analyst and New York Times journalist, covering Trump since his 2016 presidential campaign.

Haberman claims Trump was initially accepting of Biden’s win, but says his mood abruptly changed. He informed his aides he had no intention of departing the White House in late January and would not let Biden move in.

In excerpts provided to CNN, the book also reveals new details about those around Trump at the time. It alleges even Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was reluctant to confront the outgoing leader on the loss.

Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
