Thanksgiving is a time for many families to get together. For those who have political differences with cousins, aunts, uncles, or even parents or grandparents, Thanksgiving can be a difficult endeavor, but many around the country set politics aside to be with loved ones on this holiday.
The president’s son is hoping that won’t be the case.
Donald Trump Jr., who authored a book called “Triggered,” is hoping his social media followers don’t “make nice” with loved ones this Thanksgiving. Instead, he’s urging them to capture on video instances where they purposely make family members upset, Business Insider reported.
“Trigger a liberal thanksgiving! Have some fun & talk politics at the thanksgiving table,” Trump Jr. wrote.
The president’s son said he would reward the best video he saw, telling users to tag him on Instagram with their squabbles.

“Best pic/vid of something/someone triggered maybe w/ my book, wins a signed copy of Triggered & a MAGA hat,” he said. Included in the tweet was a link to purchase the book from online shopping site Amazon.
Trump Jr.’s book “Triggered” became a bestseller on Amazon earlier this month. However, it did so thanks in part to a large purchase from the Republican National Committee, which is now offering the book as part of a fundraising scheme to donors who give $50 to the party.
The book by Trump, according to Amazon, retails for a price of $30, although currently it’s available for purchase for just over half that amount on the website.
The RNC is not alone in making purchases of Trump Jr.’s book, which is artificially bolstering sales’ numbers. According to the New York Times, at least nine conservative or Republican-allied organizations have bought thousands of copies of “Triggered,” and is handing them out to donors, much like how the RNC is doing things.
