The president’s eldest son claimed that Hudson News bookstores are not selling his book released last month.Trump’s book was replaced as the number one nonfiction book on The New York Times‘ bestseller list this week by an anonymous Trump administration official’s book cautioning Americans about his namesake father’s presidency entitled, A Warning.
Several recent reports have also emerged which accused the Republican National Committee of bulk-buying Triggered in order to inflate sales of the 41-year-old’s first book.
Last month, The New York Times reported that the Republican National Committee and other GOP allies engaged in the practice of bulk-purchasing thousands of copies of Triggered. Federal Election Commission documents revealed that the GOP spent nearly $100,000 in order to push his book to the top of bestseller lists.
An additional controversy surrounding the book took place last month after a Los Angeles launch event “very nasty,” causing Trump and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, to leave the venue, CNN reported.
Staunch supporters of Trump began flooding Hudson News booksellers’ social media accounts about his claim of his book not being stocked. The company did not immediately respond Sunday to Newsweek’s requests for comment due to the holiday weekend.
“Pretty ironic that this company refuses to sell a book named “Triggered”. I have one guess as to why,” reads one tweet directed at Hudson Booksellers’ most recent post.
Critics pounced on Trump’s claim about the airport bookseller, mocking his ability to write as well as taking a swipe at the RNC inflated purchase reports.
“I think they’re fully stocked in the fiction section,” one snarky Twitter user replied to Trump Jr’s complaint.
“There are boxes and boxes of them at the RNC,” another Twitter commenter wrote.
