Trump is doing so many interviews it may hurt sales of his future memoir: report

Donald Trump has dozens of interviews scheduled in the coming weeks with authors examining his presidency. But according to POLITICO, some close to Trump are worried that the amount of interviews he's doing will take away from the impact of his own memoir, should he choose to write one.

"In the coming weeks, Trump is expected to meet with several reporters who spent years tracking his political ambitions or covering his presidency and quest for reelection," POLITICO's Meridith McGraw and Gabby Orr report. "The sheer number of book interviews is so massive that some in his orbit worry he may be doing too many and hurting his ability to monetize his own recollections for a book of his own, should he choose to write one."

"The list includes The New York Times' Jeremy Peters as well as Maggie Haberman; The Wall Street Journal's Michael Bender; ABC News' Chief Washington Correspondent Jon Karl; 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' author Michael Wolff; and Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig. Some of the authors are capitalizing on the success of their previous Trump books — and the continued interest in his time occupying the White House — by writing a sequel," Politico reported.

Those who know Trump are not surprised that he's set on keeping his name in the public eye during the road to 2024.

"Donald doesn't believe in the concept of 'no comment.' He feels like there will always be one side of the audience who sympathizes with him. So it's not surprising to me that every one of these book interviews he's going to sit through and think he has the power to manipulate the authors and try to influence them," said former senior White House official Omarosa Manigault Newman.
