The tome, ‘Let Trump Be Trump,’ was written by the president’s first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and his deputy campaign manager, David Bossie, who dub the #election of President Trump the ‘greatest political event in the history of our republic.’
In the first chapter, they lay out who they consider Trump’s friends and foes, characterizing Spicer and other Trump team members who came from the Republican National Committee, including Reince Priebus and Katie Walsh, as the latter.

The book’s first chapter suggests there was a divide between Trump campaign staffers and those who joined from the Republican National Committee, chaired by Reince Priebus, who later became Trump’s first chief of staff. Priebus resigned in July
The book begins on election day, starting early – when Trump’s prospects looked bleak – to after 3 a.m., when the president-elect was delivering his victory speech.
Lewandowski and Bossie suggested, however, that Spicer and others considered the vote a bygone conclusion.
‘The truth was, some on the campaign were already jumping ship,’ the duo wrote, pointing a finger toward Spicer.
Spicer, working as the chief strategist for the RNC at the time, along with being a Trump campaign adviser, had called a meeting at RNC headquarters in Washington, D.C., where he and his team gave election predictions to ‘tier-one network reporters,’ Bossie and Lewandowski wrote.
