President Trump’s former executive assistant spoke to “Fox & Friends” in her first interview on camera about a “due date” that got her fired in August 2019 and a shocking personal detail that she told the president just a few days ago.
Madeleine Westerhout, former head of Oval Office Operations, told host Steve Doocy about the “bad night” in which she commented on Trump being described as “harmful.”

“On a rare day off after a few drinks by the pool, I accepted an invitation to an off-the-record dinner with four reporters and a White House colleague, and at that dinner I said some things I did not mean and that I should never have said, “Westerhout explained.
“And I deeply regret that, but I take full responsibility for my actions that night,”

In her new book, “Off the Record: My Dream Job at the White House, How I Lost It, and What I Learned,” coming out on Tuesday, Westerhout said she decided to be “completely honest” and revealed one side of the president she says that hardly any people ever get to see and some surprising personal details.
“I did not vote for President Trump in 2016,” the former Republican staff committee admitted.
“I absolutely did not vote for Hillary Clinton,” she added, “but in 2016, you know, I had never met the president and everything I knew about him I based on what the mainstream media told me, and it was not until I got to know him and knew his character that I realized how wrong I had done. “
Westerhout, who served as a porter for the president with his desk outside the Oval Office, now describes the president as “a very kind and generous man”, a “great leader and encouraging boss,” adding “I can not wait to vote for him on November 3. “

“Until then, there will be no bigger supporter of President Trump than me,” Westerhout said.
One thing she said that is “wrong” about Trump in the mainstream media is “his deep admiration and respect for women.”
“He markets women. He surrounds himself with strong, intelligent women. He’s married to one. He’s raised two of them,” she said, referring to Ivanka and Tiffany. “Every interaction I’ve seen and had with him has just shown … how much President Trump respects women.”
According to Politico, Westerhout shared intimate details about the president’s family – including daughters Ivanka and Tiffany – during the dinner with reporters.
Days after the dismissal, Trump tweeted that he “forgave” Westerhout, calling her “a very good person” and adding “I love Tiffany, do good!”
Westerhout shared with Doocy that she has learned a lot and taken time to reflect on how she has treated people.

“One of the things I take most out of this experience is that it will get bumps along the way. It is inevitable. We are all human,” she said. “I made a mistake and decided I would not let it one night, a mistake, define me.”
She says she wrote the book “to get the truth out there and to show the American people the president that I know and love.”
