Politico shared reports of Mr Trump’s planned flurry of interviews with journalists.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, former senior White House official said the former President doesn’t believe in “no comment”.
She told Politico: “He feels like there will always be one side of the audience who sympathises with him.
“So it’s not surprising to me that every one of these book interviews he’s going to sit through and think he has the power to manipulate the authors and try to influence them.”
One former aide said: “It’s important for him to control his own narrative and utilise these mediums to share his thoughts and correct the record.”
