A former Trump staffer has spoken out about the former president in the wake of The New York Times' discovery about how Trump's re-election campaign stole money from his supporters...
And the staffer blasted him as a "cruel con man who wants to destroy people."
Which, of course, doesn't exactly come as a surprise considering the last few months.
Donald Trump took his 2020 election lost catastrophically...
And many have been arguing that his outrageous behavior is simply a sign of his true colors.
Although it's been 4 months since Joe Biden beat Trump in the election...
The sore loser that is Donald Trump is still refusing to concede to his defeat.
But the votes didn't lie!
Biden received approximately eighty-one million votes, while Trump got seventy-eight million, according to NBC News.
Never in the history of U.S elections has a president behaved so badly over his defeat.
From the moment Biden was confirmed as the winner on November 7th, Trump went on a Twitter rampage - spreading lies about how the election was "stolen" from him and how Biden was nothing but a fraud.
Trump's behavior online began to escalate to dangerous levels...
And the lies he was spreading to his followers ultimately caused the shocking scenes in Washington on January 6th.
After holding a "Save America" rally just a few miles away from the prestigious Capitol building, Trump encouraged his supporters to "take the election back" and "fight like hell"...
Which lead to thousands of them storming the Capitol and unleashing true havoc.
5 people, including 1 police officer, died on that day...
Including hundreds of others being seriously injured.
People from all around the world were horrified by the violent scenes...

And thousands began calling on Trump to intervene and to tell his followers to back down... which, of course, he refused to do along with refusing to take responsibility for the actions of the rioters.
This resulted in Trump being removed from Twitter and all other social media platforms for "inciting violence"...
After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.https://t.co/CBpE1I6j8Y— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 8, 2021
And ever since, Trump has been painfully absent from all forms of social media.
Of course, we all know how much Trump loved running his mouth via social media...
So we can't imagine how much of a kick in the teeth this must have been for him!
The seventy-four-year-old was clearly in a huge sulk over his social media dismissal...

"Trump has asked for a major send-off on Inauguration Day next week,” reports CNN.
And when the day of Biden's inauguration arrived, Trump wasn't present - making him the first U.S president in decades to not attend the inauguration of his successor.
Not a cool look, Don.
President Biden has been in power for 2 months now...
And although he seems to have been doing a pretty good job as the forty-sixth president of the United States, Trump really doesn't seem to think so.
At any given opportunity, Trump has viciously torn into the president for how "bad" of a job he's been doing...
Including at the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 28th, in which Trump well and truly grilled President Biden and his administration.
"We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad but none of us even imagined how just how bad they would be and how far left they would go," he told the cheering crowd.
He yet again insisted that he had won the 2020 election, fair and square...
And that he plans to "beat them [the Democrats] for a third time" in 2024.
Of course, this was music to the ears of Trump's remaining supporters...
But to many, the mere thought of the United States being run by Donald Trump is a literal nightmare.
And a former staffer of Trump's has now spoken out about what he's really like behind closed doors.
In an appearance on MSNBC last week, former Trump administration official Miles Taylor described Trump as a "cruel con artist that wants to destroy people" while discussing The New York Times investigation into Trump's re-election campaign.
Last week, The New York Times revealed Trump's re-election campaign was forced to refund more than $122 million to donors after they unwittingly signed up for recurring donations.
People who thought they were making a one-off donation to the former president's campaign were shocked to find that money had been leaving their accounts every week because they did not check a box to opt-out, which was buried in a disclaimer's fine print.
"This man is a grifter, he's a con artist and he's cruel."
"We have to look back at this period and learn a lesson and see the total damage done by bad rhetoric coming from our nation's leaders, and how much of an effect it can have on our country and our own civility as Americans," Taylor said.
Taylor then touched on the subject of how one of the people who repeatedly had money stolen from his account by the Trump administration was a cancer patient who could no longer afford his rent.
"That was especially devastating," Taylor said, adding that his mother is a hospice nurse, so he is well aware of "how difficult life is for people at end of life."
"This is what it made me think of... Donald Trump once said he was glad that there was a pandemic because it meant he didn't have to 'shake the hands of his disgusting supporters'... so he doesn't want to shake their hands, but he wants to raid their pocketbooks."
The former staffer said this appalling behavior "wasn't a surprise."
"This is who the man has always been. He's a major league All Star of grifting. A con artist who started things like Trump casinos, Trump University, Trump mortgages, the Trump administration, which itself ended up being a scam and now we know the Trump campaign was a scam."
If Taylor's allegations are true, Donald Trump is clearly not a good man.
Forever a con artist, the ex-POTUS would rather pickpocket his supporters than shake their hands. pic.twitter.com/CFU9STV0Lk— Miles Taylor (@MilesTaylorUSA) April 4, 2021
