500 people, including writers and publishers, signed a joint declaration against the allegations that Donald Trump, whose presidency has ended, will publish the book. The statement said “There is no book deal for traitors”.
According to a report in the Guardian; 500 names of editors, publishers, and authors signed a joint letter, asking the industry to refuse to publish any memoirs that Donald Trump would write after the presidency.
The signatories of the campaign stated that a government that caged children and encouraged the coup should not have any book deal.
In a report published in the Washington Post in November last year, it was claimed that Trump would publish a book like other American presidents. The letter titled “No Book Agreement for Traitors” was signed last week by more than 250 editors, writers and publishers.
The signatories to the letter, acting in concert, oppose any official of his presidential administration, including the outgoing Trump, from publishing a book in the future. Publishers that signed the letter include employees from Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and Macmillan.
Last year, the New York Post claimed that after serving as president, Trump planned to sign a $ 100 million TV show and book deal.
It was also reported by the Guardian that such an agreement was important for Trump, who left office and had to pay $ 400 million in debts within 4 years.
