President Donald Trump plans to publish a pocket book, called “President Trump: An Unauthorized Biography,” his book editor and publisher said Monday, which will likely fetch a high price for the White House because of its contents.
Publisher HarperCollins announced the book in a news release, saying that it was co-written by two longtime Trump advisers, Tim Miller and Peter Sokolowski.
HarperCollins plans to begin selling the book in May, said Justin Smith, the publisher’s senior vice president and general manager. A representative from the White House said it was scheduled to be released in early 2019.
HarperCollins said Mr. Trump, who once released a book, “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again,” on his own in 2016, wanted to see “the man who has occupied the Oval Office put across by his own hand” on a new book.
“The book is an unprecedented opportunity to better understand the president’s views on the key issues of the day, from the military and the economy to the wall and global affairs,” the publisher said.
The book is expected to include a collection of family photos, excerpts from letters, including one Mr. Trump wrote to Vladimir Putin thanking the Russian president for a call in August, and “extensive and unprecedented” new information about Mr. Trump’s ideas, his battles with members of his own administration and his attitude toward the legal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
