Former Trump Aide Makes Bizarre Dietary Claim
An ex-Trump White House aide claimed that former President Donald Trump would sometimes chew on torn-up documents.
“He loved to tear up those documents,” Omarosa Manigault Newman said in an interview with MSNBC.
“We got a very big briefing about presidential records and management … we had been told that if you’re with the president and he hands you something … you have to account for that,” Newman said.
“His habit of tearing these things up … my heart truly goes out to the people responsible for going in the trash bins [and] recovering these things. But there are certainly things that I’m sure cannot be accounted for because Donald Trump became very very aware that a lot of these sensitive documents would at some point be made public.”
The 48-year-old former Apprentice star claimed she once saw Trump “chewing” a document he had just torn up after meeting with his former attorney Michael Cohen in the Oval Office.
“After Michael Cohen left the office and I walked in to the Oval, Donald — in my view — was chewing what he had just torn up,” she said, adding, “It was very bizarre because he is a germophobe he never puts paper in his mouth.”
Newman has regularly feuded with Trump since she was fired from the White House in 2017.
