Donald Trump is releasing a new book that will reveal 150 private letters sent to him by celebrities and other public officials that is sure to be a best seller.
Featured prominently in the book is none other than Oprah Winfrey herself. Evidently, Trump and Oprah were pretty chummy back before he ran for president as a Republican and overnight became a racist, according to Democrats.
Titled “Letters to Trump,” the book’s publisher, Winning Team, described it as a “colorful photo book [that] captures the incredible, and oftentimes private correspondence, between President Donald J. Trump and some of the biggest names in history throughout the past 40 years!”
“Before President Donald J. Trump created the most significant political movement in American history, he had already achieved tremendous success as one of America’s most prominent real estate moguls and acclaimed media personalities,” the description added.
The book “includes letters from Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Princess Diana, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, Mario Cuomo, Arnold Palmer, Jay Leno, Liza Minnelli, Regis Philbin (salutation: ‘My Dear Trumpster’) and many more,” Axios reported.
A 2000 letter to Winfrey included current commentary from Trump, who called the media mogul and philanthropist “amazing,” according to the news outlet.
“Sadly, once I announced for President, she never spoke to me again,” the former president said.
Here’s more on that exchange from Axios:
Winfrey wrote to Trump after he sent her a book excerpt, apparently from his 2000 book, “The America We Deserve,” in which he wrote that his “first choice for vice president would be Oprah Winfrey.”
“Americans respect and admire Oprah for her intelligence and caring,” he wrote. “She has provided inspiration for millions of women to improve their lives, go back to school, learn to read, and take responsibility for themselves. If I can’t get Oprah, I’d like someone like her.”
On letterhead that says simply “Oprah,” she replies: “I have to tell you your comments made me a little weepy.”
“It’s one thing to try and live a life of integrity — still another to have people like yourself notice.”
After Trump announced in 2000 that he was considering a presidential run with the reform party, Winfrey wrote, “Too bad we’re not running for office. What a team!”
We’ve come a long way since then and Winfrey has gone out of her way to downplay whatever relationship she had with Trump, but photos like the image Trump shared on Instagram back in 2013 don’t lie:
