Trump Jr.’s book is expected to be a fundraising boon for his father’s re-election campaign, Republican National Committee press secretary Mandy Merritt told the New York Times, adding that signed copies of Triggered raised nearly $1 million. On social media, over 1.7 million conservatives in recent months have flocked to Parker, a Twitter-like app, after Twitter placed warning labels on some controversial President Trump tweets and Facebook removed some of his campaign ads.
“This is a political pamphlet, not a book,” Peter Os nos, head of the nonfiction imprint PublicAffairs told the New York Times about Liberal Privilege. “It hasn’t been subjected to any measure of quality or accuracy.” (The majority of publishers, however, do not fact-check nonfiction books, and most authors hire freelancers on their own dime to check their work).
A sneak peek of Liberal Privilege ’s cover contained an apostrophe error, prompting snarky remarks from the publishing world. And a Melania Trump tell-all, written by former friend and White House events planner Stephanie Winston Wolff, sits in fourth place.

Just like her father, Ivanka Trump has used her position in the White House to make money and grow her business. Junior’s second book, Liberal Privilege, is all about how Democrats get away with everything and Republicans are held accountable for everything even though the Supreme Court has a majority in the Supreme Court, the GOP dominates the Senate, and there’s a pretend Republican in charge of the White House.
Part of what liberals get away with, according to Junior, is being allowed to profit off their positions as a child of a powerful politician. The symbol meant editors who work on The Times’ best-seller list had determined some sales had been made in bulk.
In fact, according to a book publishing industry expert who spoke to CNN Business, the suggestion the RNC purchase put Trump Jr. “People are making way too much of something that has no basis in fact,” said the person, who requested anonymity to candidly discuss the matter.
The second book on The Times’ best-seller list that week was “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers,” which sold 23,654 copies. The Times’ best-seller list is not solely based off raw book sales tallied by Book scan, but on the newspaper’s own methodology.
Though the details of that methodology are closely held, it is known that the Times gives less weight to bulk sales, meaning that the RNC’s buy may not have even counted for the full 3,500-7,000 copies. “Triggered” outpaced the competition in both weeks by such a significant factor that it would have almost certainly topped The Times’ best-seller list without the RNC buy.
Soaring its way up the New York Times bestseller list is Donald Trump ’s new book, which features a chapter dedicated to attacking trans athletes. The eldest son of the US president released his book Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence US, on November 5.
Although, Zeke Miller, White House correspondent for the Associated Press, had previously posted an email sent out by the Republican National Committee offering “hand-signed” copies of Trump Jr ’s book to anyone who made a donation of $50 or more: Trump Jr says that trans inclusion is about more than “just our sense of fairness and lost scholarships on the line”, claiming that it can also pose a “safety issue”.
Referring to retired MMA fighter Fallon Fox, he suggested that she transitioned in order to abuse cis women. Dr Eric Villain, director of the Institute For Society And Genetics at UCLA, refuted the claim in Time Magazine, saying that Arab trans people “have significantly less muscle strength and bone density, and higher fat mass, than males”.
On the day of Triggered ‘s Nov. 5th release, the committee blasted out campaign emails that promised signed copies in exchange for donations. 1 on Then York Times ‘ bestseller list, the ranking was annotated to specify that Triggered ’s sales numbers included bulk orders.
Ending with red donation buttons, the email requested a contribution of $50 or more in exchange for a hand-signed copy of Triggered. “Using books as a means to fund-raise is standard practice from political parties on both sides of the aisle,” Reed told the paper.
Confirming critics’ accusations, the Times reported on Friday that the RNC paid $94,800 to Books-A-Million on Oct. 29. The information about the payment, which took place seven days before the book went on sale, was found in documents sent to the Federal Election Commission.
(“We haven’t made a large bulk purchase, but are ordering copies to keep up with demand,” he told the paper on Nov. “The book has been hugely popular,” RNC spokesperson Michael Joyce said in part in a statement on Friday.
The book ’s publisher, Center Street, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment about the RNC’s involvement in boosting book sales through bulk orders to support its own fundraising. “First: I am not operating in my official capacity as a spokesman for my father’s campaign in these pages,” he writes in Triggered.
Don Jr., who is running the family’s company with brother Eric and who is not technically a paid political operative or government official, is a regular surrogate for his dad on the campaign trail. It is wonderful!” the president (known for his distaste for lengthy reading materials) tweeted on Saturday.
1 status on Twitter, even as he and his father have routinely denounced the Times as fake news. It’s really sad to watch him try to earn his father’s love so publicly,” the duo, Jason Serving and Diagram Stiffer, known as The Good Liars, told The Hill in a statement.
Schwartz’ insightful remark speaks to the obscene level of deceit and moral depravity that lurks behind Trump ’s so-called accomplishments. According to Times policy, if “institutional, special interest, group or bulk purchases” are included in the calculations, a bestseller is flagged.
Don Jr.’s bestseller not only received this mark of suspicion, but it stands as the lone title on the list to have it. Because the Times has reserved the asterisk for another purpose, suspect books like Don Jr.’s get a dagger (†) next to the title.
