Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims that President Trump wanted to use a copy of his book instead of the Bible during his swearing-in ceremony.
Manigault Newman claims in her upcoming book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” that Trump pitched the idea of taking his presidential oath on a copy of “The Art of the Deal,” according to an excerpt obtained by Slate Magazine on Saturday.
“He asked me, ‘Omarosa, what do you think about me getting sworn in on The Art of the Deal?’” Manigault Newman writes, according to Slate.
The article goes on to state the following:
When Manigault Newman questioned him about bucking the inauguration tradition, Trump allegedly responded with “Yeah. The Art of the Deal is a bestseller!”
“It’s the greatest business book of all time,” Trump said, according to Manigault Newman’s book. “It’s how I’m going to make great deals for the country. Just think how many copies I’d sell — maybe a commemorative inauguration copy?”
The former reality television star reportedly writes that Trump played the comments off as a joke, but she says she believes he was serious, according to the excerpt obtained by Slate.
Trump co-authored the bestselling book in 1987 with Tony Schwartz.
