Trump reportedly ordered his helicopter to fly low so he could stay on the phone to yell at Paul Manafort

A new memoir by the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, Corey Lewandowski, alleges that Trump ordered his helicopter pilot to fly low so he could deliver some choice words to Paul Manafort.

Manafort, who would later take over the campaign after Lewandowski was dismissed, and even later come under indictment for financial crimes, made the mistake of suggesting Trump not go on TV, according to an Axios preview of "Let Trump Be Trump."

Apparently while on the way to a rally in Delaware in April, 2016, Trump ordered the pilot of his personal helicopter to fly low so he wouldn't lose cell service to facilitate him yelling at Manafort.

The book alleges that Trump let off a string of four-letter words at Manafort before saying "I know guys like you, with your hair and your skin," according to Axios.

Trump's campaign reportedly brought amusement and surprises throughout.

When Steve Bannon, the former Brietbart editor who became a trusted Trump confidant, first heard that Trump was running for president he joked: "Yeah, of what country?"
