This came after two senators presented details of a bipartisan immigration deal which Trump rejected. The book also claimed the president prefers to eat at McDonald's when traveling, for fear of being poisoned elsewhere. He referred to their countries of origin as - sorry, there is no sugarcoating it - shitholes.
