Donald Trump May Have a New Reason to Be Angry With Mike Pence
Donald Trump is finding it very difficult to communicate with his electorate these days. Aside from being banned from major social media platforms and having his blog closed, he is reportedly not being wooed by major book publishers to write his post-White House memoir. While there is certainly an audience for his message, the thought of editing a Trump book is touted behind the scenes as a "fact-checking nightmare" per Politico.
"It doesn't matter what the upside of a Trump book business is, the headaches the project would bring would far outweigh the potential in the eyes of a major publisher," said Javelin literary agency co-founder and president Keith Urbahn, across from the political website. He expressed concern about "an exodus of other writers and a staff uprising" when a publisher signed the former president, which he described as an "unlikely event".

If you talk to Trump, he has a very different answer to writing a book about his administration. He claims that "two of the largest and most prestigious publishers have made very extensive offers that I have turned down," says Politico. He didn't name the editors, but he "started writing the book" and of course it will be "the greatest of them all".

The former president has the option to self-publish his memoir (where he is free to say what he wants) or he can pursue an offer from conservative publisher Regnery, who recently signed Republican Senator Josh Hawley after he had resisted the 2020 election results on January 6th. But publishers' lack of enthusiasm has to sting as former Vice President Mike Pence landed a two-book deal with Simon & Schuster worth up to $ 4 million and former White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway became also courted to write about her time with Trump.
While New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that Pence's deal was "scratching him," Trump spokesman Jason Miller vows that Trump had "no problems" with Pen's deal and, according to Politico, was "okay." It must still hurt his ego to know he wrote 19 books before his presidency and publishers were loudly pressing to work with him.
But that success came when he was known as a successful businessman - not a divisive political figure. He will likely have to be creative getting his memoir out since the traditional route has closed its doors.
