Donald Trump bombastically declared Friday that he was “writing like crazy” on what would become “the book of all books.”
In a statement on his website, the former president claimed to have turned down two book deals (presumably about his time in the White House, although he did not clarify) because it wasn’t the right time.
Trump did not name the publishers.
He also claimed to be “working on a much more important project.”
Trump’s comments ― in particular the “book of all books” brag ― prompted mockery on Twitter:
Book of all books? 🤔 My guess is he’s re-writing the Bible with himself as the star.

obviously he’s concerned that his book of books would be classified as fiction and would face stiffer competition on the best-seller lists

“When the time comes you’ll see the book of all books” is my new query open.

Why does it have to be the book of all books? Why is not enough to say that you’ll see a book? Why am I tweeting about this? https://t.co/R2wqLVnbK9

I somehow plotted out part of a novel in my sleep last night, so I guess I will soon, like our former president, be working on the book of all books.

Sounds like a great Twitter profile: “Author of the forthcoming book of all books.”

I told everyone in high school that I turned down two girlfriends, that I was dating like crazy anyway, and that when the time comes, they’d see the girlfriend of all girlfriends. pic.twitter.com/sQUuyUbCem

The book of all books will be released at the same time he releases his tax returns.

If the “book of all books” includes writing like this, might I suggest something printed on heavy cardboard stock, or perhaps something fuzzy with a squeeker inside it. https://t.co/XQETfZnamA
