At least two major publishing houses have rejected a book proposal from Donald Trump Jr. that attempts to profiteer from his father’s presidency.
The eldest Trump son is reportedly pitching a book about his father’s unpopular presidency. But according to a report from Fox Business, publishers don’t want to be intertwined with Trump’s son, who has been a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe.
Reporter Charlie Gasparino notes that, as a result, “at least two major publishers summarily rejected Trump Jr.’s book in recent days without even making a low-ball bid on an advance.”
A source familiar with the publisher’s decisions told the reporter, “There was basically no interest in a book that’s basically a defense of daddy book when you’re under federal investigation yourself.”
