'Embedded Enemies' In Government Are Undermining Trump, Loyalists Claim

The New York Times reported last month that the Secret Service had to intervene after Kelly grabbed Lewandowski by the collar outside the Oval Office last winter.

Lewandowski acknowledged that "John and I had a very candid discussion". "I don't know, what do you think, Mike?", he said, referring to Pence, who replied: "As strong or stronger".

In a book coming Tuesday by Trump campaign originals Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, "Trump's Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency" (Center Street), the president says the Mueller investigation has helped him politically, per the WashPost's Phil Rucker. These people "attack the administration with a thousand cuts", Trump's Enemies alleges.

"They do this in complete disregard to the millions of Americans who voted for Donald Trump", it continues, per the Post. "And what we do is we call these people out, because it's the right thing to do".

Bossie chimed in to point out that, "we still don't know who wrote the anonymous letter", referring to the op-ed written by a "senior official in the Trump administration" that was published in the Times on September 5.

"They don't support him and that's the most disappointing part", he said, not mentioning Kelly or other White House staffers by name.

While Lewandowski insists he did not actually get into a White House fight with Kelly, the fierce Trump loyalist also had some bitter words for Kelly's staff during his sidewalk talk with TMZ.

Lewandowski and Bossie met with Trump in the Oval Office on September 20 for a friendly interview, an edited transcript of which appears in the new book.

"I would have never said this to you, but I think the level of love now is far greater than when we won", President Trump is quoted in the book, per the Post.

"I think it makes my base stronger", said Mr Trump.

The book is being published just as Trump is said to be considering ousting a number of members of his team.

Both former personal attorney Michael Cohen and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort as a "rat" for cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

Meanwhile, National Economic Council director, Gary Cohn, is described as a "limousine liberal", while former staff secretary Rob Porter is accused of working to thwart Trump's agenda.
