Cohen told NBC’s Lester Holt about his new book, “Disloyal: a Memoir,” about his years working for Trump.
“In the book, obviously, I describe Mr. Trump as a cult leader, and I was in this cult,” the former lawyer noted. “So one of the purposes of writing the book is really from one former cult member to the current ones. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: Open your eyes as I have. And I want you to appreciate that Donald Trump cares for no one or anything other than himself.”
“I mean, who could possibly accept this?” Cohen also said about the latest reports that Trump insulted American dead buried at a war cemetery in France during a 2018 visit.
A response from the Trump campaign says Cohen “readily admits to lying routinely, but expects people to believe him now so he can make money from book sales. It is unfortunate that the media is exploiting this sad and desperate man to attack President Trump.”
