KEY POINTS

  • Eric Trump denied the accusations, the new book’s authors wrote
  • Donald Trump was also accused of raging at campaign staffers after election night
  • Another book revealed that Trump was upset over the leaked story of his stay at the White House bunker following George Floyd protests

Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, reportedly “flipped out” after the 2020 election results came out, an excerpt from a new book has revealed.

The excerpt from “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year” by Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker revealed that Eric yelled at campaign staffers at the White House’s Map Room following election results.

“We pay you to do this… how can this be happening?” Eric reportedly yelled.

The night before the election, Eric reportedly predicted in front of friends that his father would take 322 electoral votes to win reelection.

In the book, Leonnig and Rucker further noted that the former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was also confident that his business mogul father would win and assured others that "there's no way we lose" to Joe Biden.

The authors said the ex-president’s third child denied the claims of his yelling at campaign staff.

Eric isn’t the only one who is accused of taking out anger on campaign aides.

In Michael Wolff’s book, “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency,” it was alleged that the outgoing president raged after Fox News called Arizona for now-president Joe Biden, Business Insider reported.

“Everybody’s calling to say that we’re winning. And then they pull this?” Trump was quoted as saying on election night.

Fox News was the first broadcaster to call Biden’s win in Arizona.

Leonnig and Rucker wrote that Trump also denied the accusations. On the other hand, he falsely claimed that the election results were "rigged."

Meanwhile, another book has shone the light on the final days of Trump as the U.S. president.

In Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender’s book, “Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost,” it was revealed that Trump was upset about the news of his stay in the White House bunker during widespread protests.

Bender wrote that Trump believes the person who leaked the information about the bunker incident “should be executed”, CNN reported.

“It was the most upset some aides had ever seen the president,” Bender wrote.

The incident took place as protesters who called for justice in the police killing of George Floyd demonstrated outside the White House.

Trump and his wife, Melania, as well as the couple’s son, Barron, reportedly had to stay in the bunker for a little less than an hour.

Days after the story was leaked, Trump said he stayed in the bunker to “inspect” instead of retreating for fear of his safety during the intense protests.
