TEHRAN (Iran News) – Mary Trump’s tell-all book, which is criticizing the US president and his family, had sold a staggering 950,000 copies by the end of its first day on sale, publisher Simon & Schuster said.
That figure, which included pre-sales, as well as e-books and audiobooks, is a new record for Simon & Schuster, the company said Thursday, CNN reported.
The book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” went on sale Tuesday and portrays President Donald Trump in an unflattering light.
Just two weeks ago, Simon & Schuster celebrated the success of another Trump tell-all book, that one by former National Security Adviser John Bolton. The book, “The Room Where It Happened,” sold more than 780,000 copies in its first week of sales.
It is rare for books to sell hundreds of thousands of copies in a single week of sales – and most books will never sell that many.
“Too Much and Never Enough” will join other books about Trump that became sensational best-sellers.
Speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Friday on “Cuomo Prime Time, Mary Trump delivered scathing criticism of her uncle’s ability to govern during a crisis throughout the coronavirus pandemic warning he is “going to get worse”.
The country has more deaths from coronavirus than any other country with at least 139,000.
When asked if the president was known among family members as someone who didn’t tell the truth, Mary asserted that he “does on some levels know what he’s doing” and pointed to issues such as not wearing a mask. She said her uncle is not anti-science but will ignore facts in order to spin his preferred narrative.
Trump told Fox News on Friday he did not believe in implementing a national mask mandate.
The US recorded a total of at least 70,674 new COVID-19 infections on Friday after climbing by a record 77,499 a day earlier, the largest increase posted by any country since the pandemic started, according to a Reuters tally.
Mary Trump, who is a psychologist, also told CNN’s program that her uncle was a “psychologically deeply damaged man, based on his upbringing and the situation with his parents”.
