Former President Donald Trump has made tens of millions of dollars from his coffee table picture book that includes captions he personally wrote slamming his political enemies.
Sales for Trump’s book ‘Our Journey Together,’ which went on sale in late November, reached $20 million in sales in less than two months, two people with knowledge on the publishing told CNN.
The hardcover book, priced $75 or $230 if signed by Trump, has about 300 big color pictures with fiery commentary on figures, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the late Republican Senator John McCain and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
‘This photo book captures the greatness of the last four years unlike anything else that has been published,’ the book preview reads. ‘Every photograph has been handpicked by President Donald J Trump, every caption written by him, some in his own handwriting!’
One photo of Trump looking upset in the Oval Office in a meeting with Pelosi and then-Vice President Mike Pence reads: “Attempting to listen to crazy Nancy Pelosi in the Oval Office – such natural disagreement.”
In another picture of the Democratic House speaker, Trump wrote, “She was screaming and shaking like a leaf, she’s f***ing crazy, hence the name ‘Crazy Nancy’.”
Next to a photo of his Republican foe McCain, Trump wrote: “Asking for a job for his wife and I am smiling but I didn’t like him even a little bit.”
Trump even attacked individuals outside of traditional politics.
“Mark Zuckerberg would come to the White House and kiss my ass,” Trump wrote. “His censorship is terrible for America. His “campaign contributions” even worse.”
Trump’s book was released by Winning Team Publishing, which longtime Republican operative Sergio Gor created. Gor’s partner in the venture is the 45th president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
