“Former President Donald Trump made governors flatter him personally for federal aid after natural disasters, a new book says.

The revelations are made in an upcoming book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, according to The Independent.

In the book, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, said Trump told governors who wanted aid: “You have to call and ask me nicely.”

Hogan claimed that Trump had a policy in which only Texas and Florida, two states with governors Trump considered close allies, would be given federal aid when needed without question.

Governor Ned Lamont of Connecticut, a Democrat, recounted a similar experience, The Independent reported.

Lamont said he asked the White House for assistance in obtaining federal disaster aid after a storm in August 2020 left parts of Connecticut without electrical power.”

  3. TYT…you still talking about Trump he's not in office right now. Democrats and Progressives are so triggered by this dude.

  4. Putin would NEVER have invaded Ukraine if Trump was President….
    Trump is a LIVING GOD..🕇🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 and King
    of America..👑..he should be on Mount Rushmore as one of our GREATEST Presidents next to Lincoln…Trump is ALMIGHTY GOD in Human Form and has changed the WORLD..🕇🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  5. You see…Trump thought he was king….He thinks being elected President is being elected king…He doesn't know that being a President is being a public SERVANT !.
    But Trump thought…I'm a corporate President of a company…and that company business is called America….NO you dope….You are a SERVANT to the people.

  6. Trump was not born as a human. Likely he has that gold trump statue he made long ago, is likely at Mar Lago to kiss before doing any business.

    The Republican Party is changing the name to better describe the actual operations of the Party.

    From here forward please use the new name for the Mobster Party. Considering so many members are either in jail or under indictment for trying to destroy America.

    The former Republican Party has lost its soul. There is nothing there but a traitors bunch of mobsters.

    If you have any sense of honesty, get out of the Mobster Party!

    Freely pass it around!
