The NBC News correspondent thinks the president will still like her book.

NBC News correspondent Katy Tur’s memoir, Unbelievable: My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, has been officially released. The book, which details her time reporting on Donald Trump’s campaign, does not paint Trump or his campaign in a positive light.

Tur received death threats from Trump supporters during her time following the campaign, as well as bitter tweets from the president himself. But Tur told The Hollywood Reporter that Trump might “actually like it” if he reads it because it conveys early on that she believed he had a better chance of winning than most people were giving him credit for.

However, the book is full of cringe-worthy tales, like when Trump “planted an uninvited kiss on her cheek” or when a married staffer asked where he could go to meet “30-something single women.”

Tur is now an NBC News correspondent and MSNBC Live anchor. She has six now-broken phones that she refuses to get rid of, reports Hollywood Reporter, because all of the texts she received (like the one from a married staffer) are archived on them.

Tur also details her own personal life, which was affected by her time on the trail, and her relationship with former CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil, her now-fiancé.
