Former President Donald Trump recently announced his first post-White House book to great fervor, given the blistering pace of sales.
Trump’s publisher, Winning Team, indicated that sales of Trump’s Our Journey Together surpassed the $1M mark within the first 24 hours of revealing the new project associated with the former president. The publisher also indicated that more than 9,000 hardcover copies had been preordered as well.
According to Sergio Gor, the Winning Team Publishing President, there has been “such an incredible response to President Donald Trump’s newest book.”
“Selling a million dollars’ worth of books in 24 hours is just extraordinary,” Gor marveled.
Gor also noted that the sales arose purely from a promotion and stories from Trump, occurring well before “[Winning Team] started promoting the work on radio or television.”
Due to the high sales of Trump’s first post-White House work, various New York-based publishers are likely regretting their decision to “cancel” Trump after his presidency by preventing him from publishing any books.
Through Winning Team, however, Trump can promote his work, which is fashioned as a coffee table book filled with 300 photographs. Trump’s handwritten comments accompany each photo in the book, which is set to be released on December 7.
In an interview with Mark Levin on Fox News’s Life, Liberty, and Levin, Trump said that he was inspired to create the work in order to highlight the “amazing four years” of his time in office, as well as castigate Joe Biden’s “humiliating” and “embarrassing” beginning.
Trump noted that the work would feature many key moments from his presidency, which include “confirming 300 federal judges and three Supreme Court justices,” “building the southern border wall,” “creating Space Force,” and numerous other achievements.
“These proud accomplishments stand in stark contrast to the destruction of [the United States] taking place now,” Trump reflected.
