When President Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president in 2015, he caused Trump Tower employees to disguise themselves as political supporters to look like a large crowd, said former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Scaramucci, who had a fame of only 11 days at work before being unceremoniously fired by the White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly, made the disclosure in a new book: Trump, the blue collar president.

In the book, & # 39; The Mooch & # 39; says he never expected Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

The New York Post obtained extracts from the book, whose launch is scheduled for next Tuesday.

On June 16, 2015, Trump and his wife, Melania, descended the escalator at Trump Tower.

Trump would announce that he was running for president.

"It seemed, at least on television, that the atrium was full of fans," wrote Scaramucci.

"Later I would learn from some friends of the campaign that all that was smoke and mirrors.

"There was not a big crowd at all.

"They gave t-shirts to the Make America Great Again construction workers and had them line up on the balcony so the place would be full."

Scaramucci also remembers a day in the election campaign.

Six months before the November election, The Mooch was on Trump's private jet when they were heading to a rally in Albuquerque.

Trump was in his office working on boxes full of papers.

"Trump looked at them the same way I look at a big plate of pasta at dinner time," The Mooch recalled in the book.

"What the hell are you doing?" Scaramucci asked Trump.

"Lift equipment contracts," said the then Republican Party candidate.

"For these new condominiums."

Mooch was surprised that in the midst of a much-contested campaign, Trump's mind seemed to be elsewhere.

Trump said he was ready for the rally. He showed The Mooch a piece of paper that listed three hand-written bullet points.

Before getting off the plane, Trump turned around and smiled at Scaramucci.

"Do you think Hillary is doing this?" Trump asked. "Running a business from your campaign plane."

Scaramucci wrote that after being hired as communications director on July 21, 2017, he had a conversation with Steve Bannon, who at that time was Trump's chief strategist.

"You have zero chance of being the communications director of the White House," Bannon told The Mooch by telephone.

Zero. & # 39;

The Mooch was fired by John Kelly (above) after Kelly replaced Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff of the White House.

When The Mooch was hired, Trump gave him a mandate to eradicate the leaks.

In the Oval Office, Trump addressed the issue during a meeting with The Mooch, Bannon and Reince Priebus, who was the chief of staff at the time.

"You two are the biggest leaks I know," Trump told Priebus and Bannon.

"I do not want any of your stain on Anthony."

Priebus finally resigned as Chief of Staff on July 28.

Scaramucci lasted only 11 days as director of communications. His fall was due to an interview he gave to journalist Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker.

In the interview, The Mooch said that Priebus was a "paranoid schizophrenic".

I also had some words of choice for Bannon.

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to shit my own shit."

The Mooch added: "I'm not trying to build my own brand from the strength of the president, I'm here to serve the country."

In his book, Scaramucci recalls his meeting with Kelly the first day he became chief of staff on July 31.

"He told me he did not think he could get the call with Ryan Lizza," Scaramucci wrote.

"Not in this city," he said.

Mooch added: "I remember thinking we had passed the Access Hollywood movie, but I did not tell him that."

The Access Hollywood film is a reference to the audio recording in which Trump is heard boasting to Billy Bush that he grabbed women by his genitals.
