Trump says publishers won’t let people write a ‘good’ book about him


Former President Donald Trump rages over a forthcoming book about him by New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman, while insisting that he knows “a lot of people” who have been prevented from writing “good” books about him.

Trump said in a Truth Social article on Friday that publishers were “not interested” in publishing books about him unless they were “bad.” The message came after the former president hit out at Haberman’s book Confidence Man: The Creation of Donald Trump and America’s Collapsewhich should be released next week.

Trump also suggested that some of his associates had wanted to write flattering books about him which later took a negative turn after he was “sold to the enemy”, although he did not provide any details on the identities of the associates. authors.

“I know a lot of people who wanted to write a really good book about me, but their publishers wouldn’t let them,” Trump wrote. “They weren’t interested in any way, shape or form unless they were willing to say bad things. Some accepted a pass and some sold out to the enemy.”

Trump said in a Truth Social article earlier today that Haberman’s upcoming book contains claims that are “pure fiction.”

“Here we go again!” wrote Trump. “Another bogus book has come out, this one, supposedly very boring and outdated, by a self-proclaimed lead case, Failure (unfunded liability!) New York Times writer Maggie Hagerman. She tells many stories in it made up, without any fact-checking or confirmation by anyone who knows, like me.”

“In one instance, she lied about me wanting to fire my daughter, Ivanka and Jared,” he added. “FALSE, pure fiction. I never even thought of it. I just have to fight to make monsters like Maggie, and all that!”

Haberman responded to Trump’s message by share tweeted a photo that appears to show the former president’s handwritten responses to questions she asked him.

The response to a question about Trump allegedly asking his former chief of staff John Kelly to ‘get his daughter and son-in-law out of the White House’ described the claim as a ‘false story’, while adding that ‘Kelly was too stupid to properly handle such an event if it is true, which it was not.”

While Trump has suggested publishers are unwilling to release books with positive remarks about him, a slew of books praising the former president have already been published.

Pro-Trump headlines from prominent conservatives include Understanding Trump by former House GOP Chairman Newt Gingrich, which includes an attacker from Trump’s son, Eric Trump.

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk wrote the best-selling The MAGA doctrine: the only ideas that will win the future, while the former president endorsed another bestseller by his former national security adviser, General Keith Kellogg, War by Other Means: A General in the Trump White House.

A book written by former Trump chief of staff at the Pentagon, Kash Patel, and published earlier this year, The plot against the king, makes him the winner of a battle between “King Donald” and the evil “Hillary Queenton”.

Patel’s book is one of many pro-Trump children’s books that have been published, with other titles including President Trump’s Kid’s Guide and Donald drains the swamp, which is part of a Donald the caveman series of books.

Several books praising Trump on a religious basis have also been published, including Trump’s Prophecies: The Amazing True Story of the Man Who Saw Tomorrow…and What He Says Will Follow and President Trump’s pro-Christian accomplishments.

Some books even claim that the former president is the second coming of Jesus Christ, like President Donald J. Trump The Son of Man – Christ and Donald J. Trump: The Second Coming of Christ.

A considerable number of negative books about Trump in addition to Haberman’s forthcoming book have also been published, including some written by former members of his team, former close confidants, or family members like his niece Mary Trump.

Former Trump aides or administration officials who have written less than flattering books include former Attorney General William Barr, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper , former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman and former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
