President Trump slams former White House staffer Cliff Sims over new book

But Sims claims that Trump knew what Conway was doing and that he didn't really care.

The Washington Post reports Trump posted his tweet as Sims was being interviewed on CNN. Eighteen minutes later, Trump campaign COO Michael Glassner said that the campaign is getting ready to sue Sims for violating the NDA. First, Trump himself tweeted about Sims, calling him a "low level staffer that I hardly knew", and a "gofer" who based his book on "stories and fiction".

Several staffers have reportedly signed nondisclosure agreements, and Sims told CNN that he wasn't sure whether he had signed one.


Cliff Sims is making the rounds on television as he tries to sell his book about his time on Trump's staff.

In a tweet on Tuesday, President Donald Trump revealed that Sims, author of Team of Vipers, had signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Dana Perino said she disagreed with Sims' actions, adding that a friend of hers said he is aiming to be "Alabama's Omarosa" - in reference to another ex-White House aide and "Apprentice" contestant who began attacking Trump after she was sacked.


The book takes particular aim at Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, referring to her as "a cartoon villain brought to life" and accusing her of leaking to reporters.

"The real leakers, past and present, get much more positive press than I do".

The former aide said he felt like he was dishing dirt unfairly about "people in the White House, who I felt were basically disloyal to him".


According to the book's description, "Sims stood with the president in the eye of the storm raging around him, and now he tells the story that no one else has written - because no one else could". On ABC's "The View", audience members booed when he said he still thought the president was fit to serve. "The story of power and palace intrigue, backstabbing and bold victories, as well as painful moral compromises, occasionally with yourself". Hundreds of pages of notes.
