President Donald Trump’s  2020 re-election campaign said Tuesday the campaign was preparing to file a lawsuit against former White House staffer, Alabama’s own Cliff Sims for violating his non-disclosure agreement in writing his new tell-all book about his time in the Trump White House.

“The Trump campaign is preparing to file suit against Cliff Sims for violating our NDA, ”tweeted Michael Glassner, the chief operating officer for the Trump 2020 campaign, Tuesday morning.

Glassner’s Tweet follows Trump’s own, which dubbed Sims a “low level staffer” he hardly knew.

A low level staffer that I hardly knew named Cliff Sims wrote yet another boring book based on made up stories and fiction. He pretended to be an insider when in fact he was nothing more than a gofer. He signed a non-disclosure agreement. He is a mess!,” said Trump.

Sims, the former Yellowhammer Multimedia CEO and a virtually unknown former aide in Trump’s communications shop, has written a tell-all book titled ‘Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House’ about his time in the administration that hit the bookshelves Tuesday.

But Sims’ isn’t letting the President’s tweet stop him. He pushed back later Tuesday morning with a tweet of his own.

“Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House” is out today, written by the most famous “gofer” in the world! Enjoy! ” wrote Sims.
