Trump May Reportedly Self-Publish Memoir Over Fears of Lowball Advance by Top Publishing Firms

Dec 2, 2021

Trump May Reportedly Self-Publish Memoir Over Fears of Lowball Advance by Top Publishing Firms Trump May Reportedly Self-Publish Memoir Over Fears of Lowball Advance by Top Publishing Firms In 2017, former US President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, reportedly signed a book deal with Penguin Random House worth over $60 million, beating... 01.12.2021, Sputnik International 2021-12-01T23:26+0000 https://cdnn1.img.sputniknews.com/img/07e5/0c/01/1091183854_0:0:2817:1586_1920x0_80_0_0_b734cbef3c5d36a2586107142fb7f842.jpg While several former officials from the Trump administration are cashing in on their time via book deals and new media careers, the 45th president of the US will likely pursue a self-publishing deal, according to an unnamed publishing executive. They explained to Politico that Trump's decision is likely due to a lack of interest from the 'Big Five' publishing houses in the US: Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan. "I imagine that’s as big a part of it as anything," they added. The executive's theory comes not long after Trump launched his own private media venture: Trump Media and Technology Group. Despite current reports about a poor relationship with publishers, Trump - with the help of multiple ghostwriters - is said to have authored more than a dozen books on business and real estate that bear his name. While former US Vice President Mike Pence has secured a multi-book deal with Simon & Schuster, it was reported earlier this year that the 'Big Five' publishers had concerns about the ethics behind Trump's potential to disseminate conspiracy theories and his spread of misinformation about the 2020 US presidential election. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), a US lawmaker who also contested the results of the election, also missed out on a book opportunity after he was dropped by Simon & Schuster. The US senator from Missouri had been set to release a book on antitrust. At the time, Hawley described the cancellation of his writings as "Orwellian" and a "direct assault on the First Amendment" of the US Constitution. https://sputniknews.com/20170301/barack-michelle-obama-book-deals-1051175565.html
