After years of bombshell tell-all memoirs about the Trump administration, President Trump is ready to fire back with a tell-all book of his own.
The Daily Beast reported Friday that sources close to the president say that Trump expects the book to sell better than his previous best-selling book “The Art of the Deal.”
“He sounded excited about it,” said one person who told the news outlet they were present for conversations about the book. “He said it would sell better than even The Art of the Deal.”
Trump has been talking about writing a tell-all memoir since “the early days of his administration” The Daily Beast reports, adding that he plans for it to be “explosive.”
One source told the outlet that Trump wants to use the book to “dish dirt and settle scores” with his enemies, including enemies within his administration.
A White House official suggested that Trump had “joked” about writing a book.
Trump suggested last year that he has seen an unnamed Democratic senator in “very bad” and “compromising” situations, and when asked for more information from a reporter, Trump said, “I think I’ll save it for a book like everybody else and I’ll write it.”
After the release of journalist Bob Woodward’s explosive tell-all book about the Trump administration, Trump also tweeted, “I’ll write the real book!”
