Well, that might go a long way in paying off Russian oligarchs…
Page Six is reporting that loser president Donald Trump just may trot off with a maaaaaaajor book deal when all is said and done.
One source familiar with the President said on Tuesday: “Trump is being bombarded with book and TV deals that could be worth a staggering $100 million.”
The source said Trump was also simultaneously being courted by far-right TV outlets, and, “book and TV deals are plan-B if he doesn’t win the vote war. Translate 70 million votes into viewers and record book sales. All the anti-Trump books have made big bucks, so this from the Donald is a surefire hit.”
It’s worth remembering that Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama inked a reported $65 million deal with Crown in 2017. So there’s THAT precedent….
“One publisher to watch is Simon & Schuster,” the book insider told Page Six. “They published [Trump’s] last book. CEO Jonathan Karp published several of his books there, and at Random House, and went to Trump’s wedding to Melania.” (Trump’s most recent book, “Crippled America,” was put out via Simon & Schuster’s conservative Threshold Editions.)
New Simon & Schuster publisher Dana Canedy told the New Yorker in July as to whether she’d publish a Trump tome:
“Oh, he’s the President. Everyone who leaves the White House has one or more books in them and that becomes part of public history. I think that would be not only appropriate but important.”
Simon & Schuster, though, is also Hillary Clinton’s longtime publisher, and released Bob Woodward’s last two Trump books, as well as Trump-bashing memoirs by John Bolton and Mary L. Trump.
And of course, Trump would actually have to LEAVE the underground bunker to make these deals happen, so lets not count his millions before they’re written…
