“Our Journey Together,” penned by president emeritus Trump himself, sold a stunning 200,000 copies within the first six weeks of it being released. “Our Journey Together Sells 200,000 Copies in First 6 weeks,” Trump announced through his Save America PAC Tuesday. “Our Journey Together” chronicles the 45th president’s presidency along with his post-presidential trajectory.
Good wishes rain in from all directions for Trump.
Sergio Gor, founder of Winning Team Publishing alongside Donald Trump Jr., celebrated the milestone on Twitter, writing, “Congratulations to President Donald J. Trump on his new book OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER!’
As numerous publishers’ attempt was to prohibit Trump from publishing books, “Our Journey Together” grossed more than $1 million in sales within the first 24 hours of being announced.
“We have seen such an incredible response to President Donald Trump’s newest book,” Gor told the Washington Examiner. “Selling a million dollars worth of books in 24 hours is just extraordinary.”
Trump donning a writer’s hat was unexpected.
Trump made the unexpected announcement that he would be releasing a book back in November. The book was revealed through an exclusive statement shared with the Washington Examiner and Washington Secrets Columnist Paul Bedard.
“Today, I am thrilled to announce I will be publishing a wonderful book in time for Christmas! ‘Our Journey Together is a collection of beautiful photos, a capture during our successful time in the White House. From center stage to behind-the-scenes — this is a must-have for all Patriots,” Trump announced.
The book depicts the most memorable moments of the Trump presidency through 300 photographs hand-picked by President Trump. Each picture contains unique captions penned by Trump himself.
“These proud accomplishments stand in stark contrast to the destruction of our country taking place right now,” the 45th president contended.
Trump published “Our Journey Together” against all odds.
While Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and other recent predecessors of Trump wrote memoirs and announced multi-million dollar deals with Penguin Random House and other publishing houses soon after leaving office, New York publishers have resisted working with Trump – especially after the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol by some of his supporters. Simon & Schuster dropped a book by one Trump backer, Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri, and faced widespread anger within the company for reaching a deal for a memoir by Trump’s vice president, Mike Pence.
Trump has referred at times to publishing a memoir, “the book of all books,” but has otherwise granted interviews to Michael Wolff, Jonathan Karl of ABC News, and others writing about him. That he released a memoir through Winning Team was a test for how a new publisher could manage sales and distribution for a book that could sell millions of copies, and WT has passed with flying colors.
