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.

Nine Google employees were escorted out of company offices in New York and Sunnyvale, California, following a sit-in protest against a cloud contract with Israel’s government.

The protest in Sunnyvale targeted Thomas Kurian’s office, CEO of Google’s cloud division, while in New York, it occupied a common area on the tenth floor.

Videos showed Google security staff and local police involved in the removal. Four workers in New York and five in Sunnyvale were reportedly detained, but details of any charges remain unverified.

 

The protest aimed to pressure Google to drop a $1.2 billion cloud computing contract known as Project Nimbus, citing concerns about its involvement with the Israel Defense Forces.

The protesters included software engineers and activists from groups opposing tech contracts with Israel. This incident reflects ongoing activism within tech companies regarding political issues, such as Israel’s actions in Gaza.

U.S. lawmakers Jerry Nadler and Joaquin Castro expressed competition concerns regarding the planned sports streaming joint venture involving Walt Disney, Fox, and Warner Bros Discovery.

They addressed these concerns in a letter to the CEOs of the media companies, questioning the impact on access, competition, and choice in the sports streaming market.

Voicing apprehension about potential consumer price hikes and unfair licensing terms for sports leagues and distributors, they requested responses by April 30, urging the companies to also send their replies to the Department of Justice.

Despite the companies’ announcement in February of launching a joint sports streaming service in the autumn to attract younger viewers, the deal faces DOJ scrutiny and an antitrust lawsuit from FuboTV. While Disney and Warner Bros remained silent on the matter, Fox declined to comment.

The joint venture encompasses a broad range of professional and collegiate sports rights, including NFL, NBA, MLB, FIFA World Cup, and college competitions, offering non-exclusive access to sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and TNT via a new streaming app.
