The 45th President released a statement via email Friday through his “Save America” PAC, announcing that he has turned down two book deals but is “writing like crazy” and will eventually release a tome that will be the “book of all books.”
“I turned down two book deals, from the most unlikely of publishers, in that I do not want to do such a deal right now. I’m writing like crazy anyway, however, and when the time comes, you’ll see the book of all books,” President Trump proclaimed.
