Rumors are circulating about a possible autobiography from former President Donald Trump, the Washington Examiner reported.
Someone close to the former president reportedly said that Trump is “thinking of one,” but no details have been finalized, according to the Examiner.
It’s on the table
Among many other business ventures, Trump was a best-selling author before becoming president, and it’s likely that an autobiography would do extremely well, considering Trump’s continued popularity among many Americans and people around the world.
However, if Trump does pursue an autobiography, the Examiner reported that he may run into a publishing problem.
“The publishing industry is girding itself to resist it and block it,” the same source told the Examiner. “That includes all of the major publishers and even printers and warehouses.”
The left has been using the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 to censor and suppress political opposition, particularly those closely associated with the Trump administration.
The most striking example of this was the decision by Big Tech social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter to permanently suspend Trump’s accounts.
The widespread effort to silence political opposition has also taken over the publishing industry. For example, the publishing company Simon & Schuster canceled a book deal with Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) after he objected to the 2020 Electoral College certification.
“It’s harder to sell a book or land a TV contributorship for anyone coming out of the Trump administration than it’s ever been,” said Keith Urbahn, the founding partner and president of Washington-based Javelin, which has represented many authors, including Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) and former national security aide John Bolton, the Examiner reported.
The attempt by mainstream publishers to cancel conservatives has led to the rise of Fidelis Publishing, which is headed by retired United States Marine Corps lieutenant colonel Oliver North.
North, who has been fighting against private-sector censorship since the days when he worked for President Ronald Reagan, said that he has received an overwhelming 150,000 responses since offering his services to pro-Trump conservatives, including six potential book ideas from Trump insiders.
For the time being, it appears that try as the left might to cancel Trump and those associated with him, his autobiography would likely still get out to the American people.
