Donald Trump didn't want to be president, the former communications director of a now-closed super PAC writes in an open letter to his supporters, but "his pride is too out of control to stop him now."

"You can give Trump the biggest gift possible if you are a Trump supporter: stop supporting him," writes Stephanie Cegielski in the letter, posted through the website xoJane.

"He doesn't want the White House. He just wants to be able to say that he could have run the White House. He's achieved that already and then some . . . The hard truth is: Trump only cares about Trump."

Cegielski writes that she was called to Trump Tower last year to add her public experience to help the polling numbers for Trump's candidacy, which had been initially staged as a "protest" to reach double digits. She ended up working for the Make America Great Again super PAC.

"The Trump camp would have been satisfied to see him pulling at 12 percent and taking second place to a candidate who might hold 50 percent," she said. "His candidacy was a protest candidacy."

And, she said that she doesn't dismiss any of Trump's supporters, but she believes it's important to let them know that he "does not know policy, nor does he have the humility to admit what he does not know — the most frightening position of all."

Cegielski also ridiculed claims Trump made following the Brussels attacks, when he tweeted that he "alone" could solve the problems of Islamic terrorism.


"Does Trump think that he is making a cameo on Wrestlemania (yes, one of his actual credits)?" she wrote. "This is not how foreign policy works. For anyone. Ever. Superhero powers where 'I alone can solve' problems are not real. They do not exist for Batman, for Superman, for Wrestlemania and definitely not for Donald Trump."

Trump's campaign has issued a statement that Cegielski had worked for the pro-Trump super-PAC, not the campaign, and that she "knows nothing" about Trump, reports The Hill, while dismissing her as "yet another desperate person looking for their fifteen minutes."
