U.S.- Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, revealed in his new book that the U.S. representative went on to call his marriage to Melania «just another deal,» used his daughter Ivanka to distract men during negotiations, criticized the appearance of his daughter Tiffany, and on more than one occasion unleashed his anger at his son Trump Donald Jr.
The book, titled ‘Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump’, was released on Tuesday. In it, Cohen exposes multiple confidential details about the life of the White House tenant, including numerous accusations of infidelities.
«I can always get another wife»
According to Cohen’s revelations, Donald Trump didn’t care too much about how his relationships with other women might affect his third marriage. The lawyer also claims that the president described his relationship with Melania as «just another deal» when Melania threatened to leave him after an alleged deception. «I can always get another wife,» quotes the supposed words the representative uttered in a private conversation. «That’s not a problem for me, if she wants to leave, so be it.»

In his new book, Cohen writes that in 2007 former makeup artist Jill Harth accused Trump of sexually harassing and assaulting women in 1993, but the lawyer got the woman to sign a statement stating that the claims were false. Despite this, the story came to light again during the presidential race of the future representative.
Also, when the accusations of exact porn Stormy Daniels first appeared in 2011, Cohen again had to put the situation under control and make the incriminations disappear. At the time, Donald Trump acknowledged, «I’m sure Melania won’t take it well.» «Don’t forget I’m married to a woman from Eastern Europe. They don’t play with this kind of thing,» the tycoon would have said.
Meanwhile, Cohen claims he knew Trump would «corner pretty women in his office and forsaver them by force when they recoiled.» According to him, the representative would «grab the women by the cheeks, approach them to the face and kiss them on the lips.» «His attitudes were from a different time, a bit like those of the 1950s Rat Gang [un grupo de actores Hollywood de esa década] and the need to respect women was never taken seriously,» the author says.
Enraged with his son
Another episode of the personal life of the US representative exposed by his former lawyer in the book is the anger that fell on his son, Donald Trump Jr. in the mid-2000s when he oversaw his failed mortgage market company, Trump Mortgage LLC.
The White House tenant «didn’t want to share his name with a ‘loser’ if that’s what turns out to be his son,» Cohen says in his play.
Another conflict occurred during the presidential campaign, when photos reappeared showing Donald Trump Jr. shooting an elephant and bragging about his hunting trophies. Media headlines infuriating Trump, who didn’t hesitate to lash out at his son: «What the hell is wrong with you? You think you’re a great man with a $10, 000 gun sitting on the rocks and then boom!»
«Did you kill any fucking animals? Why the hell do you post pictures like that? You think you’re a big man? Get out of my office,» Trump shouted.
Hey President Bonespur! Isn’t your idiot son, Don Jr., a marksman? Takes down tranquilized elephants from 5 ft away? Why not send HIM to Portland? He could stop that whole protest in ten minutes. You Trumps are very brave, sir! Thank you for your service! pic.twitter.com/Msk8iMhrra

Ivanka versus Tiffany
According to Cohen, the complicated relationship between Trump and his eldest son is not the only thing that can overshadow his role as a father. In his book, the former representative’s ex-husband claims that Donald Trump came to use his daughter Ivanka to gain an edge in the negotiations.
«He often asked me to send Ivanka to a meeting with a married man who, according to the boss, would be susceptible to his charms,» reveals the author of ‘Disloyal’, adding that the representative argued that men «cannot think clearly when they are near her.» «They can’t look away from her,» Trump said, who wasn’t worried that those men would bend in edad to his daughter.
These practices had consequences and triggered a rivalry between Ivanka and her other daughter, Tiffany. The latter was nicknamed by her brothers as «the red-headed stepdaughter,» Cohen says.

According to the play, Tiffany once asked her father to call Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue, to ask her to allow her to do some internships at the magazine. Then Trump talked to Ivanka about it and they both criticized his other daughter’s physical appearance.
«I don’t think Tiffany looks right. She doesn’t have what you have, honey,» the president would have commented, to which her eldest daughter would have replied, «I agree, Daddy. She just doesn’t look right, that’s the right way to put it, Daddy.»
Cohen’s book has been rated by Skyhorse Publishing as «the most devastating business and political horror story of the century.» «This is a story they haven’t read in newspapers or on social media, or seen on television. This is a story that could only be met by someone who has worked for Trump 24 hours a day for a decade, not just for a few months or even a couple of years,» the book described the book.
Cohen, 53, was sentenced in December 2018 to three years in prison on multiple counts of criminal conduct, including secretly paying women who claimed to have maintained relations with Trump, lying to Congress, and not reporting millions of dollars in revenue. In May of this year, the lawyer was placed under house arrest due to the risk of contracting coronavirus in prison.
In February 2019, Cohen called the White House tenant «racist, con man and cheater» in his testimony during a House hearing on Trump’s alleged crimes in the course of the 2016 presidential election campaign.
