According to a new memoir published by former Trump fixer Michael Cohen, Donald Trump mocked evangelical Christians after holding a meeting with religious leaders before the 2016 election.
The memoir, titled, “Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump,” is due to be released this Tuesday. Cohen broke with Trump to cooperate with Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign.
The Washington Post reports on a passage from the book where Cohen describes Trump’s comments after meeting with a group of evangelical leaders at Trump Tower in 2016. After the meeting concluded, Trump said: “Can you believe that bullsh*t? Can you believe people believe that bullsh*t?”
“The cosmic joke was that Trump convinced a vast swathe of working-class white folks in the Midwest that he cared about their well-being,” Cohen writes. “The truth was that he couldn’t care less.”
