“Crippled America," Donald Trump’s diagnosis of the nation’s woes, is the undisputed bestseller this year among books penned by presidential candidates. Consumers have bought more than 36,000 copies of the hardcover title so far in 2016, according to Nielsen, with total sales of 199,000 since the book went on sale last year. Overall, Trump has sold 240,000 copies of four books published or republished since last year.
Nielsen, which captures about 85% of all book sales, periodically releases figures for the presidential candidates, and the story this year seems to be much the same as in 2015. Republican Ben Carson, who has withdrawn from the race, is the top-selling candidate-author, with sales of at least 1.7 million on five different titles, according to Nielsen. But Carson couldn’t translate his literary popularity into votes.
Trump doesn’t have that problem, with his blunt assessment of a broken country resonating far and wide. Trump’s celebrity obviously helps with book sales, as does the entertainment factor inherent in the entire Trump spectacle. Trump's books blend populist political views with insights from the business world and the implied promise that readers can get rich like
Ted Cruz:"Tonight, a clear contrast was drawn between the two nominees. Tonight, Hillary Clinton made it clearer than ever that if elected President, our future will continue on the same path that is hurting millions of Americans.
If Clinton is elected, we know that the havoc Obamacare is wreaking on American families, on small businesses, and on our healthcare system will continue. We know that President Obama’s relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry and to wage war on coal will continue. We know that the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism and the influx of unvetted refugees from nations infiltrated by terrorists will continue. We know that President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty will continue and even expand.
Ivanka Trump:”As president, my father will change the labour laws that were put in place at a time when women weren’t a significant portion of the workplace, and he will focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all!”
CLEVELAND — Declaring America in crisis, Donald Trump pledged to cheering Republicans and still-skeptical voters Thursday night that as president he will restore the safety they fear they're losing, strictly curb immigration and save the nation from Hillary Clinton's record of "death, destruction, terrorism and weakness."
Confidently addressing the finale of his party's less-than-smooth national convention, the billionaire businessman declared the nation's problems too staggering to be fixed within the confines of traditional politics.
One of the women closest to Donald Trump both personally and professionally insists he is “a feminist.”
The presumptive Republican nominee’s daughter, Ivanka, told the Sunday Times of London that her father’s support of feminism is “a big reason I am the woman I am today.”
“My father is a feminist,” the executive vice president of Trump Organization said. “He always told me and showed me that I could do anything I set my mind to if I married vision and passion with work ethic. He’s surrounded me with strong female role models who have done just that since I was a little girl.”
The billionaire real estate mogul has frequently been criticized for his treatment of and comments about women — from Fox News host Megyn Kelly to Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi — throughout his presidential campaign. And a recent
Donald Trump’s campaign started the month with a paltry $1.3 million in cash — a mere fraction of Hillary Clinton's $42.5 million war chest — putting the GOP front-runner at a sharp disadvantage heading into the general election against Clinton’s money machine.
On the same day that Trump fired his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, amid a steady stream of reports of campaign infighting and disorganization, the latest batch of Federal Election Commission filings show that the real estate mogul has a long way to go to establish a financial operation that can compete at the national level.And it’s not just money — the filings revealed a campaign staff of less than 70, a number dwarfed by Clinton’s nearly 700 paid employees, and few of the campaign’s expenses suggested work had begun to build out a more robust operation. All together, it’s the most lopsided fundraising start to a presidential election in the modern campaign finance era.
The filings detail campaign finances covering the month of May, during which Trump locked up the GOP nomination after the May 3 Indiana primary.
Donald Trump handily won Washington state's Republican presidential primary Tuesday, even as he shared the ballot with three other candidates who had already dropped out of the contest.As counties started posting their results shortly after 8 p.m., Trump took a commanding lead with 76 percent of the vote, followed by John Kasich and Ted Cruz, with 10 percent each. Ben Carson garnered 4 percent of the vote in early returns.
Even though Trump is the only candidate remaining in the GOP contest, Kasich and Cruz were still on the ballot because
Donald Trump:’Thank you DELAWARE! Thank You RHODE ISLAND! Thank you MARYLAND! Thank you PENNSYLVANIA! Thank you CONNECTICUT!’
It was a big night for Donald J. Trump, who swept the Republican contests, and Hillary Clinton, who won all but Rhode Island among the Democratic primaries.
Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton barreled toward a general election showdown on Tuesday night as they dominated primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland and other Eastern states, piling up enough delegates to close in on their parties’ nominations.
Looking past their fading rivals, the two even taunted each other in dueling election-night events. Mrs. Clinton chided the Republican’s penchant for harsh language by saying that “love trumps hate.” Mr. Trump was more bluntly dismissive of Mrs. Clinton, saying her appeal boiled down to her gender.
“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote,” Mr. Trump said.
Donald J. Trump wrested back control of the Republican presidential race on Tuesday with a commanding victory in the New York primary, while Hillary Clinton dealt a severe blow to Senator Bernie Sanders with an unexpectedly strong win that led her to declare that the Democratic nomination was “in sight.”
The Queens-born, Manhattan-made Mr. Trump was poised to take most of the 95 Republican delegates at stake, substantially adding to his current lead over Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and significantly improving his chances of winning the Republican nomination. Mr. Cruz came away with no delegates, a major setback, while Gov. John Kasich of Ohio had a shot at picking up some in Manhattan and the capital region.
Mrs. Clinton’s decisive victory ended a string of wins by Mr. Sanders and gave her more delegates than her advisers expected. Her base of support was Long Island, the five boroughs, and upstate cities, with female and black and Hispanic voters turning out for her in especially strong numbers.
Rudy Giuliani: "My advice to Trump would be to debate"
New York (CNN)Rudy Giuliani confirmed in a pair of interviews Thursday that he will vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming New York primary — but doesn't want it called it an endorsement.
The former New York mayor insisted in an interview with The New York Times that his support should not be viewed as an endorsement.
