.@HowieCarrShow just wrote a book which everyone is talking about. He was a great help. He is a veteran journalist who had a great influence in NH and beyond. He calls it the most amazing political campaign of modern times. The book is called, “What Really Happened.” Enjoy! #MAGA pic.twitter.com/jYhjpoJKHe

The Commander in Reads just wants us all to set aside petty squabbles and tuck into a good yarn. Sure, he might not rub our faces in it like the previous president, but Trump is at heart a man of letters, and a ravenous bookworm. His Twitter account is dotted with full-throated recommendations and scathing pans alike, all in the service of preserving the printed word. But let’s set aside the fact we all know and recognize—that Trump adores books and reading them—and take a closer look at which ones he tends to tweet about.
“The Faith of Donald Trump,” a book just out by David Brody and Scott Lamb, is a very interesting read. Enjoy!

7: Tweets about books written by loyal former associates such as Seb Gorka, Corey Lewandowski, Jason Chaffetz, etc.
This has been a look inside Trump’s Book Corner. Be very afraid.
