Madeline Westerhout was executive assistant to President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2019, and the Director of Oval Office Operations at the White House from February to August 2019. She’s authored a new book titled, Off the Record: My Dream Job at the White House, How I Lost It, and What I Learned. In it, the former “gatekeeper” of the Trump White House, writes about her relationship with the president, and tells the story of the terrible mistake that led to her losing her job.
Even Donald Trump has tweeted about the book, saying, “Great new book by former Director of Oval Office Operations, Madeleine Westerhout, entitled ‘Off the Record‘. When I look at all of the Fake Books and garbage written about me, it’s really nice to see a very smart and already wise young woman write an honest depiction of what went on at the White House during some extremely interesting and important times. So many good stories by someone who, unlike most other so called writers, was actually there, and a part of the action – of which there was plenty. Go buy this book, a job well done!”
