President Donald J. Trump may someday want to pen his own memoir about his experiences in the White House over a span of four years and the worst pandemic in over 100 years, but would anyone actually publish it?
New York Post‘s Kyle Smith wrote Saturday, “If Trump shows up with a book proposal in hand, lots of New York City’s snootiest publishers are going to respond by pulling up the drawbridge and lobbing rotten eggs out the windows.”
The response is a stark contrast to the anti-Trump tell-all titled Too Much and Never Enough that his niece, Mary Trump, published earlier this year. When it was released in July, it flew off the shelves, selling a whopping 1.35 million copies in its first week alone. There’s even talk now of a follow-up contribution by the author. She may have her own familial struggles to deal with if she proceeds; the author’s uncle, Robert Trump, took legal action to try and block the publication of Too Much and Never Enough, claiming his niece had signed a nondisclosure agreement. Robert, the president’s younger brother, died in August and the case failed to proceed.
