Former US President Donald Trump has claimed that royals Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana and other influential people who wrote to him ”kissed me”. Mr. Trump made the claim while promoting a new book of private letters sent to him by public figures, The Guardian reported.
The book, called ‘Letters to Trump’, contains correspondence between the former president and some of the most powerful and influential figures, including Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Oprah Winfrey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
”I think they’re going to see a very fascinating life. I knew them all — and every single one of them kissed my a** and now I only have half of them kissing my a**,” Trump told Breitbart News, as reported by The Guardian.
Other famous names from the 150 letters also include Clint Eastwood, Michael Jackson, former presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Meanwhile, his eldest son Donald Trump Jr claimed that A-list celebrities treated his father differently when he ran as a Republican.
”My father has lived an amazing life and has been around some of the most interesting people in the world. It’s amazing how quickly their adoration for him changed when he ran as a Republican,” Donald Trump Jr. said.
He added that the book will shed light on “how false” the contempt for these people is.
Winning Publishing, the publisher behind the book, said the book will be released on April 25. “What do presidents, royalty, celebrities and business titans have in common? They all love Donald Trump,” Winning Team Publishing founder Sergio Gor said in a statement to AFP.
“Long before he entered politics, Donald Trump lived an extraordinary life. No book highlights his iconic relationship like ‘Letters to Trump,’ and we’re thrilled to be able to share that with our readers,” he added.
Two editions of the book will be made available. While the regular edition will be sold for $99 (Rs 8,178), a signed edition of ‘Letters to Trump’ will cost $399 (Rs 32,962).
