A new book by Trump will contain nearly 150 private letters
A new book featuring letters from celebrities and politicians to former US president Donald Trump will be released next month. “Letters to Trump” includes private correspondence with former presidents including Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Richard Nixon, along with celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jackson. There are letters from Princess Diana, as well as foreign leaders, including former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“We had lots of great letters from lots of great people and not so great people, to be honest with you,” Trump told reporters in a phone call to discuss the Book . “But they’re very famous people. And probably there’s never been such diversity as this in terms of people where the letters come from and who they come from.”
The Book includes a letter from Bolsonaro, the former far-right president of Brazil, who, like Trump, refused to accept his election defeat, claiming, without evidence, that the nation’s voting system was prone to fraud. The disinformation campaign culminated in thousands of his supporters swarming Brazil’s Congress, Supreme Court and presidential palace in a riot that bore striking similarities to the one at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Trump — who at one point declared, “I’m a denier, I’m an election denier” — also acknowledged his pattern of building close relationships with strongmen like Kim and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, which some former White House aides have said they believe stems from Trump’s desire to share their unchecked power.
It will be published by Winning Team Publishing, founded by Donald Trump Jr. and Republican operative Sergio Gor. “Long before entering politics, Donald Trump lived an extraordinary life. No Book highlights his iconic relationships like Letters to Trump, and we are thrilled to share it with our readers,” said Gor. The Book will cost $99 or $399 for a signed edition.
