With all the major media networks calling the 2020 Presidential Election for Joe Biden, it looks like President Trump’s time in the White House could be coming to an end. If that were to happen, there are rumors that the President could see a book deal worth $100 Millions (over $30 million more than Michelle and Barack Obama’s book deal).
Should Trump not win his legal battle for the Office of President of the United States, there are rumors about Trump’s future. Page Six is reporting that Trump is being courted by right-wing TV outlets. 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.”
One “book insider” claims that the reported numbers might be exaggerated. “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.) [Page Six].
The new Simon & Schuster publisher Dana Canedy told the New Yorker that she would be willing to publish a book from Trump. When asked Canedy says “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 has published books from Trump before and also has been the publisher for Hillary Clinton’s books as well as Bob Woodward, John Bolton, and Mary L. Trump’s book.
