As the Republicans continue to tear each other apart under Trump’s administration, the Democrats slowly move towards their goal of obtaining as many seats as they can before the 2020 election.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci this Thursday shed some doubt on the recent claims revealed in an explosive new book about the Trump White House.
“As it relates to the other stuff in the book, I was there for a lot of it, Chris. And I can tell you a lot of the stuff does not seem right to me,” Scaramucci explained to host Chris Cuomo while speaking on CNN’s “New Day.”
The former Trump aide vehemently took issue with a claim in the book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” by Michael Wolff, that stated that President Trump didn’t wish to actually win the election.
“President Trump – then candidate Trump, wasn’t leaving anything in the tank, Chris. Okay? This is a guy that’s a winner, he’s been a winner his whole life,” Scaramucci added.
“And so someone saying that he didn’t think he was going to win or that he was winning by losing, I sort of think that’s a bunch of nonsense.”
The book has found itself under heavy scrutiny since quotes began leaking this past Wednesday.
Trump even took to addressing some of the claims himself in the book stated by his former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon.
“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said in a statement after excerpts were released. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
