Books About the Trump Administration
Posted on January 29, 2021
But some publishers are hoping that with this, as with so many other things, Donald Trump will defy the norms. His administration has already proven to be an unusually fecund subject: the New York Times reports that more than 1,200 books about Trump have been released during his single term, compared with only about 500 books about Barack Obama during his first four years in office. And even as Trump settles into Florida retirement, the books will just keep coming.
The library doesn’t have those future books yet, but in the meantime there’s no shortage of reading material available if you’re looking to relive the past four years.
There are so many books about Trump, in fact, that one of the books is just about the author trying to read all the other books about Trump:
A few caveats about this list – first of all, it’s incomplete. This is only a portion of the most recent books this library owns about the Trump presidency, and the books we own are only a fraction of the books that have been published, which if laid end-to-end could reach from Toledo to Mar-a-Lago and back seventeen times.
Second caveat: most of these books are highly opinionated, not to say inflammatory. If you hold any opinions of any kind, however mild, about the Trump administration, at least some of these titles are likely to infuriate you and should be perused only under a doctor’s supervision.
Third caveat: that Mar-a-Lago thing above was a fake fact.
Basically, if nobody’s making fun of you, then you’re probably not president.
