President Donald Trump isn’t known for being an avid reader but on Tuesday morning he praised Christopher Bedford’s new book, “The Art of the Donald: Lessons From America’s Philosopher-in-Chief.”
Bedford is a senior editor at The Daily Caller, a conservative news site based in Washington, D.C., and editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller News Foundation.
According to Amazon, the book is “written in the style of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War and The Tao of Warren Buffett” and “is a must-read for every Trump fan (and even the haters).”
“Bedford takes you inside the new president’s unorthodox mind, unlocking the genius of his approach to everything in life and offering you insight into navigating life the Trump way,” the Amazon review says.
The book features “personal campaign-trail anecdotes and lessons from Trump’s long career as a businessman and politician.”
In an interview with Fox News in March, Trump was asked about his reading habits. He said he “loves to read” but is often too busy to read. Here’s his full reply, according to a transcript from Business Insider.
“Well, you know, I love to read. Actually, I’m looking at a book, I’m reading a book, I’m trying to get started. Every time I do about a half a page, I get a phone call that there’s some emergency, this or that. But we’re going to see the home of Andrew Jackson today in Tennessee and I’m reading a book on Andrew Jackson,” Trump said.
“I love to read. I don’t get to read very much, Tucker, because I’m working very hard on lots of different things, including getting costs down. The costs of our country are out of control. But we have a lot of great things happening, we have a lot of tremendous things happening.”
Christopher Bedford’s book about the 45th president of the United States was just released this week.
