The Strange Revelation Sarah Sanders Just Made About Donald Trump

President Donald Trump's former press secretary, Sarah Sanders, has written a new book, and she's spilling ALL of the tea! According to The New York Times, the memoir is an account of her time working with Trump as well as her possible plans to run for governor of her home state, Arkansas.

In excerpts of Speaking for Myself: FaithFreedomand the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, obtained by The New York Times on Sept. 2, 2020Sanders treated readers to some seriously juicy gossip when she recalled an awkward incident she experienced with none other than the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. According to Sanders, during the famous Singapore Summit in June 2018, for a brief moment, both she and Jong-un locked eyes before he gave her a quick wink. Say what? She wrote that she "quickly looked down and continued taking notes and for the rest of the meeting only looked up from my notes in the direction of the U.S. delegation." 

But that's not even the wildest part of the story. Keep reading after the jump to hear how Sanders' boss, the President of the United States, reacted to the news.

Trump joked about Sarah Sanders and Kim Jong-un

As reported by The New York TimesSarah Sanders also recounted President Donald Trump's reaction to her strange encounter with Kim Jong-un in the September 2020 book. While aboard Air force One on the way home, Sanders finally confided in the President and then-White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly, about her less than desirable moment with the "Supreme Leader." In her book, she claimed that Trump couldn't believe what came out of her mouth, with him and Kelly erupting into laughter. "Kim winked at you?" Trump grilled her. "Are you telling me Kim Jong-un hit on you!?!?" he asked, a sentiment Sanders didn't mean to imply, the NYT noted.

Suddenly, as Sanders recalled, the president had an epiphany. "Well, Sarah, that settles it," Trump joked, according to the NYT excerpt. "You're going to North Korea and taking one for the team! Your husband and kids will miss you, but you'll be a hero to your country!" Well, that's one way to get rid of those pesky nuclear weapons, we suppose. 

As for Sanders, we have a feeling her father, former governor of Arkansas and Christian minister Mike Huckabee, might not be too keen on the idea of his only daughter serving her country, ahem, in that particular way. 

President Trump couldn't get Kim Jong-un to do this one thing

Of course, Sarah Sanders was in on many conversations with and pertaining to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with President Donald Trump. Despite the very cringey wink moment, Trump did attempt to negotiate important diplomatic duties with Jong-un. In Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, Sanders noted that the U.S. president attempted and failed at getting the dictator to give up his nuclear weapons. As noted in Daily Mail, the former White House press secretary said that would take a "miracle." Can't blame the man for trying, now can we?

The anecdote is in line with the theme of the book, which is reportedly written to make the president look appealing to the public, per Daily Mail. Sanders wrote, per The New York Times, that Trump "isn't perfect," but "a second term for President Trump would be better for all Americans than the Democratic alternative." 

Donald Trump almost admitted this to Sarah Sanders

Sarah Sanders' book, unlike some previously written books about the president — or those in the works — will praise President Donald Trump and emphasize his best attributes. Sanders wrote about Trump caring about women, specifically mothers, and respecting Sanders as such.

She wrote, "As a woman and working mom, President Trump not only empowered me — he defended me and reaffirmed me when the feminists and liberals were tearing me down with cruel and dehumanizing personal attacks." Moreover, she shared a short conversation in which the president shared a more emotional side of himself and almost admitted to crying. According to NPR, the exchange came after Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh discussed "his 10-year-old daughter during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing."

"You know I'm not a crier," Trump said to Sanders after she asked if he cried. "But I'm not going to answer that." Only time will tell if the new book will truly give Americans a more 360-degree view of 45.
