"DONALD Trump never said that he was leaving the Republican Party," his former aide Jason Miller told The Sun.
The slamming confirmation comes after a bombshell book claimed that the former president said that he was going to leave the right-wing party following an altercation, which Miller has dubbed "fake news."
The book, Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, claims that Trump had a heated conversation on his final day in office with Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
The reported head-to-head took place on January 20, just after Trump boarded Air Force One for his last flight as president.
"[RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel] called to wish him farewell. It was a very un-pleasant conversation," ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl writes in the supposed exposé.
"Donald Trump was in no mood for small talk or nostalgic goodbyes. He got right to the point. He told her he was leaving the Republican Party and would be creating his own political party.
"The president's son, Donald Trump Jr., was also on the phone. The younger Trump had been relentlessly denigrating the RNC for being insufficiently loyal to Trump.
"In fact, at the January 6 rally before the Capitol Riot, the younger Trump all but declared that the old Republican Party didn't exist anymore."
The novel went on to claim that Trump only backed down from the decision when Republican leaders threatened to take actions that would have cost the former president "millions of dollars," ABC reported.
However, the president's former aide and GETTR CEO Jason Miller has told The Sun that these claims are false.
"President Trump never said he was leaving the Republican Party – that’s fake news designed to create headlines and promote book sales," Miller said.
"He did say that Capitol Hill Republicans ran the risk of alienating 75million Trump voters if they supported impeachment efforts, which was factually accurate."
He added: "Like with all books on post-presidencies, an author’s biases must be thoroughly examined and understood before accepting that anything discussed between the covers is 'fact'."
ANOTHER BOMBSHELL BOOK
Miller has previously slammed "tell-all" books, including the one that Melania Trump's ex-adviser wrote about the former first lady.
Miller called Stephanie Grisham "an a**hole for flipping on the family for money."
Grisham spent time as Melania's chief of staff and Donald's White House press secretary and communications director.
Since leaving DC, Grisham has published expose 'I'll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in the Trump White House,' which an insider said will reveal "surprising new scandals."
The Sun spoke with President Trump's former spokesman about the tell-all, which was released on October 5.
"Well I mean two things can be true at the same time – people might have a legal right, it might be a case by case of what you can say about certain things, but just because you have a legal right doesn’t mean that you’re immune from being an a**hole," Miller said when asked about recent books written about the Trump family.
"I don’t know what’s going on in Stephanie Grisham’s life, I don’t know what life challenging or different things are happening but to go and – she was someone that was such a hardened defender of Mrs Trump and someone who was just so passionately by her side – to then flip, like it just seemed kind of weird."
Grisham took over the role of White House Press Secretary in July 2019 but left after never giving a briefing during her nine months in the post.
She then returned to the East Wing to serve as the First Lady's chief of staff.
Grisham had already served as a longtime spokesperson and confidante to Melania.
When Trump brought her on, he told reporters of Grisham: “Stephanie has been with me from the beginning, as most of you know."
When asked if he believes that the book was written for money, Miller said yes.
"I mean for everything unique that has happened during the Trump presidency to be like 'that moment you wouldn’t tweet something out that I suggested to you, that’s it, divorce is real' no that’s bulls**t, it’s clearly the cash money that’s talking."
