Saturday, 07 November 2020 (YJC)_ Former Trump campaign chief is planning to write a potentially damaging book.

Former Trump campaign manager to write a damaging bookPresident Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale is reportedly working on a book deal after being removed from his post atop Trump's reelection campaign earlier this year.

Parscale has told multiple people he is planning to write a book, Bloomberg reported Friday. The former campaign chief has reportedly said he has signed with a literary agent and is in talks with a potential publisher.

Bloomberg, citing three people familiar with the situation, reported that the revelation has prompted concerns among some advisers to Trump that the former top campaign official could disclose damaging information about the president and his family.

Parscale, who has remained a close ally to Trump for nearly a decade, has reportedly already written some of the book, and two of the sources told Bloomberg that a potential book deal could be worth seven figures.

The former campaign chief has not made any formal announcement and the sources spoke to the outlet on the condition of anonymity.

Representatives for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill. Parscale did not respond to Bloomberg's request for comment.

The news comes as Trump trails Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in vote tallies in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada as mail-in ballots continue to be counted.

The Associated Press and Fox News have projected Biden as the winner of Arizona, though other news outlets — including The New York Times — have not. The Trump campaign has also moved to contest ballots in multiple states.

Parscale appeared to jab the Trump campaign in a tweet Friday, writing that Trump out-performed among Latino voters due to the work of an aide who has since left the team.

Multiple Trump allies have called for absentee ballot counting to be halted amid the president's claims, made without evidence, that there have been multiple instances of voter fraud and that Democrats were attempting to steal the election from him.

The former campaign official tweeted Friday afternoon that the country "needs to rethink elections.”
