Trump’s top strategist has a new book deal
Donald Trump’s campaign chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, is writing a book about his time in the White House, his first book about the president, and plans to launch a new website aimed at raising money for his nonprofit, the Project for American Progress, The New York Times reported Monday.
Trump’s book is titled “The Art of the Deal,” and it will be published by HarperCollins in January, according to the Times.
The book is being written by Bannon, who is a longtime political commentator and political strategist for the conservative media outlet Breitbart News, and will be a part of Bannon’s new nonprofit, Project for America, the Times reported.
Bannon previously was a top adviser to former President Donald Trump and served as the chief strategist and senior counselor for his 2016 campaign.
He will be the latest Trump aide to write a book, after Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner penned a book titled “America First: A Call to the American People.”
That book, which has been out for months, focuses on Trump’s policy priorities and his desire to move America away from a “globalized world” and toward a “strong America.”
Bannon is a former senior adviser to the presidential campaign of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, as well as the founder of the website Breitbart News.
He is also the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, which Trump defeated in the 2016 election.
Bannon served as Trump’s chief strategist during the campaign.
His book is not his first foray into politics.
Bannon was the executive director of the Project on Government Oversight from August 2017 until September 2018.
He also served as a senior adviser on the transition team for Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence.
He was Trump’s deputy campaign manager from October 2017 until August 2018.
