Senior Trump officials considered resigning together in a & # 39; midnight suicide & # 39; to warn the public of the president's behavior, according to a new book by an unknown author.
In & # 39; A Warning & # 39 ;, by Anonymous, the author claims that the officials decided against the massive resignation because they feared that this would entail a further risk for an already unstable government.
The writer, described as a & # 39; senior official in the Trump government & # 39 ;, portrays the president as cruel and awkward.
They describe Trump as & # 39; as a 12-year-old in an air traffic control tower, without pressing the buttons of the government indifferently, indifferent to the planes slipping on the runway and the flights frantically deviating from the airport, & quot; Washington Post who received a copy of the book before it was published.

The book, which is for sale on November 19, is based on experiences and observations first hand by the writer.
The writer also claims that their views are in the hands of many other current and former administrators.
White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, described the book as a & # 39; work of fiction & # 39; and said the author was a coward.
The author addresses the issue of anonymity in the book by saying: & # 39; Some call this & # 39; cowardice & # 39 ;. My feelings are not hurt by the accusation. I am also not prepared to link my name to criticism of President Trump. I can do that in due course. & # 39;
They initially gained fame for an anonymous written column in the New York Times last year, entitled I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.
In the book, which reached number four on Amazon's list of bestsellers last night, the author describes senior officials waking up in a & # 39; full panic & # 39; about statements Trump has made on Twitter.

The author also claims that Trump is openly sexist and racist behind the scenes.
They wrote: & # 39; He comments on makeup. He jokes about weight. He uses words like & # 39; & # 39; sweetheart & # 39; & # 39; and & # 39; & # 39; honey & # 39; & # 39; to appeal to experienced professionals. & # 39;
It is also claimed that Trump had a Spanish accent during a meeting in which he complained about migrants crossing the US-Mexico border.
& # 39; We let these women come in with about seven children. They are useless. At least if they came in with a man, we could put him in the field to pick corn or something. & # 39;
The author has also questioned the mental faculties of Trump. They wrote: & He stumbles, smuggles, gets confused, gets irritated quickly and has difficulty synthesizing information, not occasionally, but regularly. Those who would claim otherwise lie to themselves or to the country. & # 39;
The book also contains allegations that are not supported by evidence, such as a claim that vice-president Mike Pence would have contributed if a majority of the cabinet were willing to remove Trump from his position under the 25th amendment.
Pence hit back on the claims and said on Thursday that no one, during his time as vice president, spoke to him about removing Donald Trump from his post through the 25th amendment.
& # 39; You know, when those rumors came out a few years ago, I rejected them then. I have never heard a discussion about the 25th Amendment during my entire term as Vice President and why should I? & # 39 ;, he told reporters after submitting the papers for him and the president to take part in the New Hampshire primary vote in next year's election.
& # 39; I mean, look at the record we're celebrating here today. The report that we are going to make throughout this country is proof of President Donald Trump's leadership, "he argued.

He then discarded the anonymous author and said that if that person was still working in the administration, he or she would have to resign.
& # 39; Just the idea of this anonymous person, who has written an editorial article and is now reported to have written a book, is just terrible for me. If there is someone in our records or who serves our records, does not support this president and is not on his agenda, they should do the honorable thing and resign, & Pence said.
The vice-president's office had declined the bill for & # 39; A Warning & # 39; – the all-round book about the Trump administration written by Anonymous, the same person who wrote the resistance last year to Ed, that Pence supported a plan to use the 25th amendment to remove Trump from the Oval Office – a move that Pence's president would have made.
In the book, the author claims that the employees of the White House in 2017 a & # 39; back-of-the-envelope & # 39; made who would be willing to make a plot against Trump.
According to Huffington Post, they believed that Pence would sign the procedure and take the acting presidency.
Under the 25th amendment, Pence and a majority of the cabinet were able to declare the president incapable and unable to exercise his powers.
Pence would then become acting president with all & # 39; powers and duties & # 39; from the top track.
Trump could challenge their decision by setting up a constitutional confrontation in Congress where the House and the Senate would decide the issue.
The procedure has never been used that way, although Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush themselves briefly activated it during a medical intervention.
Pence was in New Hampshire to formally file the registration of the Trump campaign for the state's primary with the state secretary.
He had the paperwork and a check for $ 1,000 to pay the registration fee.
& # 39; It is such a pleasure to be here today, & # 39; said the vice president. & # 39; In so many ways a movement started that has restored our economy … here in the Republican primary in New Hampshire. I could no longer be honored on behalf of the President of the United States to be here today. & # 39;
But he would not discuss his own political future.
Asked if he was planning to become president in 2024, he replied: & # 39; I will keep you informed. & # 39;
Some demonstrators greeted the vice-president on his arrival & # 39; Dump Trump & # 39; signs. One with a megaphone repeatedly shouted that & # 39; vice president Mike Pence is the worst since Jimmy Carter. & # 39;
Republican Governor Chris Sununu and his old Secretary of State Bill Gardner joined him in the submission, which almost lost his job after being in the trump of the Trump election committee, which the president had set up to investigate unproven claims that millions of people voted illegally in 2016. which, according to him, was the reason why he lost the popular voice to Hillary Clinton.
Corey Lewandowski, one of Trump's campaign managers during the 2016 campaign, arrived for Pence. He has fueled speculation for next year in the state in the state.
& # 39; I'll let you know by the end of the year. If I run, I win & # 39 ;, he told reporters.
Along the corridor to the Secretary of State's office were prominent state republicans – many of them were wearing Make America Great Again hats.

The vice president was in Virginia on Saturday to campaign with Republican candidates prior to Tuesday's election.
Pence was not on Trump's July 25 call with Ukrainian President Zelensky, but Williams and two other assistants were.
& # 39; The American people have seen the transcript of the president's call and they see that there was no consideration & # 39 ;, the vice president told reporters in New Hampshire.
He said that President Trump and he himself spoke with Zelensky about supporting his efforts to tackle the historical pattern of corruption and also to seek more European support.
He added: & # 39; The focus of our administration and all my contacts with President Zelensky were in the national interest and in strengthening our relationship with Ukraine, strengthening Ukraine's position against Russian aggression and continuing a reform agenda. & # 39;
