Cliff Sims, a former communications aide in President Donald Trump's White House and the author of the recently released tell-all book "Team of Vipers", is now suing his former boss for allegedly trying to punish him for publishing his story.

After Sims - the former director of White House message strategy and special assistant to the president - published a tell-all memoir about the Trump administration titled Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House last month, the president's campaign organization filed an arbitration claim accusing him of violating the terms of a nondisclosure agreement he signed during the 2016 presidential race.

"This action seeks to permanently enjoin the Defendants from silencing Mr. Sims with respect to any information he learned during his tenure as a federal employee, and any legal rights and protections therefrom that may necessarily flow", the court document reads.

The former Stoke City man was also incredible at saving penalties. "Will be very sadly missed". Thinking especially of Ursula, Julia, Wendy and Robert.

Shortly after, Sims fired back at the president, disproving his comments with multiple photos posted to social media that showed himself and Trump during their time together in the White House. "That's what we teach our kids to do when bullies are coming after them".

"He doesn't respond to weakness, and ultimately, I don't like bullies and I wasn't going to allow myself to be bullied", said Sims. "But being backed into a corner, I'm not going to cower".

Last year, former senior adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman claimed in her own tell-all book that the Trump campaign had offered her a $15,000-a-month job in exchange for signing an NDA that would have barred her from disclosing details of her time at the White House.

"Upon information and belief", the suit claims, "President Trump is directing, authorizing and/or otherwise approving substantive decisions of the Trump Campaign that are governmental in nature and for the purposes of concealing [Trump's] involvement in order to silence Mr. Sims in a manner that would otherwise be unavailable under existing First Amendment case law".
