Mary Trump’s Book Sold More Copies in a Week Than The Art of the Deal Sold in 32 Years

Donald Trump has made many friends over the years. He’s also made an incredible amount of enemies. And those enemies are more than willing to write tell-all books about the President and his family.

And those willing to write tell-all books about the Commander in Chief include members of his own family. His niece, Mary Trump, released a book about the President in the mid=part of July. The tome was a smashing success and has now sold more copies in a week than Trump’s Art of the Deal sold in 32 years.

The Mary Trump book, titled, Too Much and Never Enough, was an immediate smash. In the first week of sales, an astonishing 1.35 million copies were sold. Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal has sold 1.1 million copies in the 32 years it has been in print.

Jonathan Karp from Simon and Shuster, the publisher of Too Much and Never Enough said:

“Mary Trump’s memoir has transcended the usual ceiling for political books to reach a larger audience of people who want to read stories about unusual families. We knew Too Much and Never Enough would make news and offer fascinating psychological insights into the president, but we’re moved to see how deeply the book has touched readers, and thrilled to have people compare the book to The Godfather.”

The President, naturally has tried to dismiss his niece’s claims. He tweeted in mid-July, “She’s a mess! Many books have been written about me, some good, some bad. Both happily and sadly, there will be more to come!”
