Donald J. Trump has a host of books to his name, the most well-known being the 1987 release ‘The Art of the Deal’.
Rating any of these books as “good”, “original” or even “definitely written by Donald Trump” is incredibly subjective. The common consensus is that his books (much like the books of many celebrities) are ghostwritten. That is, the books bear the celebrity’s name as official author, but an unnamed writer was responsible for the whole thing.
The ghostwriter for ‘The Art of the Deal’ has publicly expressed his shame at making Trump seem more likeable than he really is. In an interview with The New Yorker, Tony Schwartz says, “I put lipstick on a pig…I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is. I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilisation.”
With the knowledge that Trump hasn’t yet written an entire book, it’s tempting to imagine what kind of burning rubbish Trump could put together if he actually wrote a post-Presidency autobiography. The Twitter community seems to have as much spare time as Trump does, so they offered up some suggestions of fitting autobiography titles.
