It’s the second official book released by Trump, who served a one-term presidency after being elected in 2016.

The first, “Our Journey Together,” was released in December 2021 via Winning Team Publishing, which was co-founded by Donald Trump Jr. that same year. The 320-page coffee table book reportedly grossed $20 million in sales.

Described as “a colorful photo book,” the new tome will feature 150 handpicked letters from the likes of former president Richard Nixon, Princess Diana, North Korea dictator Chairman Kim Jong Un, Queen Elizabeth II and even Queen of Media Oprah Winfrey.

The letter from the former daytime talk show host dates back to 2000 when Trump was considered a high-powered New York City socialite. The note Winfrey wrote, according to Axios, says: “Too bad we’re not running for office. What a team!”


Though the media mogul wields much political power and has close ties to Trump foes including the Kennedys, the Clintons and the Obamas, Trump says he still holds Winfrey in high regard, referring to her as “amazing” in his commentary.

“Sadly, once I announced for President, she never spoke to me again,” Trump added.

The written exchange between the two apparently came after Winfrey received an excerpt of his book, “The America We Deserve,” written with Dave Shiflett and published in 2000 by Renaissance Books.

Long before Trump fueled the birther conspiracy targeting Barack Obama, the New York real estate mogul had lofty political aspirations, writing that his “first choice for vice president would be Oprah Winfrey” if he ran for president back then.


Winfrey reportedly replied on “Oprah” inscribed letterhead: “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.”

Winfrey is in good company with letters from other big names extolling virtues on the future MAGA movement leader. Correspondence from King of Pop Michael Jackson, former president Ronald Reagan and megachurch millionaire Joel Osteen are said to also be featured in the book.
