The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His Former Attorney and Personal Advisor—The Man Who Helped Get Him Into the Oval Office
Once Donald Trump’s fiercest surrogate, closest confidant, and staunchest defender, Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons are buried.
This is the most devastating business and political horror story of the century. As Trump’s lawyer and “fixer,” Cohen not only witnessed firsthand but was also an active participant in the inner workings of Trump’s business empire, political campaign, and presidential administration.
This is a story that you have not read in newspapers, or on social media, or watched on television. These are accounts that only someone who worked for Trump around the clock for over a decade—not a few months or even a couple of years—could know. Cohen describes Trump’s racist rants against President Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Black and Hispanic people in general, as well as the cruelty, humiliation, and abuse he leveled at family and staff. Whether he’s exposing the fact that Trump engaged in tax fraud by inflating his wealth or electronic fraud by rigging an online survey, or outing Trump’s Neanderthal views towards women or his hush-money payments to clandestine lovers, Cohen pulls no punches.
He shows Trump’s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate, mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul—a man who courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to the common man, but then rips off small business owners, a con man who will do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the cost to his family, his associates, or his country.
At the heart of Disloyal, we see how Cohen came under the spell of his charismatic "Boss" and, as a result, lost all sense of his moral compass.
The real "real" Donald Trump who permeates these pages—the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating President—will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.
Michael Cohen’s book is very credible, interesting and well written. He candidly describes many terrible things that he did and how he did many of them on behalf of Trump. I appreciate him writing it and confirming what I already knew,: what a horrible person Trump is and how he is even worse than what I thought he was.55
Great first person insight in to the character of @POTUS.55
Read this book in a few days. What an exciting read!55
He seems genuine. I believe trump turned on him after asking or demanding he do ruthless, immoral and unethical things - all for the glory of Trump. So sad how he was starstruck, and then discarded.45
This book is a fascinating read with a slight lovable humor, spectacularly done with the NYC flare.55

Excellent book. Surprisingly well written. I must admit I did not expect it to be- I guess because of all the negative things trump has said about Cohen. I think he writes thoughtfully and honestly. Too detailed to think it could all be made up. I believe him because having lived in NYC I had heard so many people tell their terrible stories about trump ripping people off who worked for him. People who lost their businesses because of him. I highly recommend this book if you want to hear the real truth about trump.55
Although Mr. Cohen does have some credibility issues, he fully admits this in the book and acknowledges and apologizes for his previous transgressions. I have no problem believing most of what he writes about our President as I’ve heard it corroborated by several other sources. A revealing look into the world of our incompetent, ignorant, and corrupt President.45
[R]emember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins. — James 5:20 What a brutally realistic portrait of a 21st century ogre you have painted Michael. I have a hard time digesting so much BS you have willingly submitted yourself to in all those years! Please write more, I will keep buying all your yarns, as long as you are honest and repentant. Bless you.55
This book is a must read. The best book I’ve read on Trump so far. Could not put it down. However I’ve known that Trump was garbage way back around 1980 when I first saw him on TV. I just immediately knew he was a cheap, lying conman, crook, misogynist, selfish pig. An ego maniac with an inferiority complex. I knew he raped and groped women and possibly underage girls. I don’t know how I knew all of this but it came to me that first time I saw him and heard his BS.55
