In an upcoming book by Miles Taylor, a former chief of staff in the Department of Homeland Security, disturbing revelations surface regarding former President Donald Trump’s alleged acts of sexism and inappropriate conduct towards women, including his own daughter, Ivanka Trump.
Taylor’s book, titled “Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy from the Next Trump,” provides an insider’s perspective on multiple incidents that occurred during Trump’s presidency.
According to Taylor, Trump made crude comments about Ivanka Trump’s physical appearance, discussing her breasts, and backside, and even speculating about a potential sexual relationship with her. Taylor discloses that former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly expressed his disgust with Trump’s remarks, labeling him as “a very, very evil man.”
These revelations align with accounts from other former staffers who recently came forward to share their experiences of Trump’s inappropriate behavior towards women. Taylor further describes witnessing Trump’s blatant sexism towards women within his administration, with incidents occurring during meetings alongside former Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.
In the book, publicly shared by Taylor on June 28, he recounts how Trump addressed Nielsen using terms like “sweetie” and “honey,” while also criticizing her makeup and outfits. Nielsen confided in Taylor, expressing that the workplace was not conducive to a healthy environment for women.
The book also references an occasion where Kellyanne Conway, a former senior counselor, referred to Trump as a “misogynistic bully” following a meeting where he berated several female officials.
However, a source from Conway’s office denied these claims, suggesting that Taylor’s motives were driven by a desire for attention and resorting to falsehoods. Trump’s comments about his daughter’s appearance are not new, as he has a documented history of making such remarks dating back to the early-to-mid-2000s.
His comments during a 2006 appearance on The View and a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone raised eyebrows, with Trump suggesting he would date Ivanka if she were not his daughter.
As the GOP front-runner for the presidential nomination, Taylor expresses concern about the potential consequences of Trump’s behavior if he were to be elected for a second term.
Taylor warns that Trump’s alleged actions, which he describes as perverse and difficult to handle, should give pause to those considering him for the presidency again, emphasizing the need to protect democracy.
