The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman on Monday instructed CNN’s Kaitlan Collins how a longtime worry of Donald Trump’s aides now seems to be elevating its head earlier than the 2024 election.

The former president has in latest weeks been more and more linked to the right-wing Heritage Foundation’s Project 2025, a playbook containing excessive coverage proposals which have been crafted by a number of former Trump White House staffers. President Joe Biden’s marketing campaign has repeatedly seized on the doc to assault Trump and warn of the results of a possible second Trump administration.

Haberman on Monday claimed to Collins that Project 2025 is “not actually a Trump effort” and that his aides “have actually been very frustrated by a lot of” its efforts.

“It is true that some key Trump advisers are involved in Project 2025,” she acknowledged. “It is true that some of those people would almost certainly staff another Trump administration. But there’s a lot of what is in that document that you’ve never heard Trump talk about that I don’t think that he would actually be interested in.”

Trump’s distancing assertion will now “be reflected on in most stories going forward about the project,” she predicted.

It’s turned it into “a bigger deal,” she stated. “So, this is exactly what Trump’s advisers had been concerned about for some time. Is this statement going to make this go away? It doesn’t really seem like it.”
