Trump took Paul Ryan over Rysy's loyalty to him after the former spokesman criticized Trump's handling of the deadly 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia, rally, according to the excerpts.
"Paul, do you know why the Democrats have fired your a – for decades? Because they know a little word called loyalty," Trump told Ryan over the phone. "Why do you think Nancy [Pelosi] has been holding this long? Have you seen her? She's a disaster. Every time she opens her mouth, another Republican is elected. But they hold onto her … Why can't you Be loyal to your president, Paul? "
Trump also noted how Ryan took off from Trump in 201
"I remember being in Wisconsin, and your own people were living you," Trump told the Wisconsin Republican, according to the extract. "You were out there, dying like a dog, Paul. Like a dog! And what did I do? I saved your a."
The White House did not immediately comment on CNN on the published extracts. CNN has reached Sims for comment.
Throughout the book, Sims tells "scenes of chaos, dysfunction and duplication among the president, his family members, and administrative officials," reported the post.
"It is impossible to deny whether the White House staff – again, even included – was at times," he wrote.
Sims also writes in his book that Trump was so uninterested in an Oval Office meeting with Ryan about the Republican health care bill that he went out and lit his television in another room, according to the post. Vice President Mike Pence had to convince the president to return to the oval office and continue the meeting, Sims wrote, according to the post.
In his book, Sims told how the White House staff failed to check the facts of former press secretary Sean Spicer's statement to the media about Trump's presidential inauguration war size since they rushed into an attempt to appeal Trump's reported record.
