Former US President Donald Trump is preparing to release a new book, his second since leaving the White House. This time, it is a compilation of the correspondence he received during his term, but also before, when political ambitions were still far from the horizon.
Letters to Trump will be released on the 25th of April, with the seal Winning Team Publishingwhich last year published the book Our Journey Togetherwhich brought in $20 million in sales in its first two months.
But, contrary to a certain innocence of the book that gathered images of the moments that Trump selected as the most relevant of his Administration, Letters to Trump promises to make several personalities worried, since the content will be composed of missives that he received throughout his life.
The book includes 150 letters sent to him by a range of prominent figures, from members of the British royal family to leading political figures, including former presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, George W Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, advanced the axles. There are also missives from world leaders such as Xi Jinping, the Chinese President; Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader; and Jair Bolsonaro, the former Brazilian president.
His son Donald Jr, who runs Winning Team Publishing, said, “It’s amazing how quickly worship changed when he ran for [líder] republican”.
In the case of Princess Diana, the two met in the mid-1990s, crossing paths at charity events. They even shared a table at a dinner where the princess was honored. And it was one of those who wrote to him to “lick his boots”, just like Queen Elizabeth II, declares the former president.
But there are more worrying letters, such as those from North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. In 2018, remember the guardianTrump said at a rally in Virginia that he and Kim were “really being tough… and then we fell in love… No, really: he wrote me nice letters, and they are great letters”.
Kim’s letters were among documents that formed part of a trove of classified material that Trump took to Mar-a-Lago, Florida, when he left the White House. Trump’s withholding of classified documents is a matter under investigation by Jack Smith, a special adviser appointed by Merrick Garland, the US attorney general.
Letters to Trump, in a literal translation, will go on sale for 99 dollars. A copy signed by the tycoon will cost $399.
