Most books Trump has ‘written’ don’t sell
Of course, he doesn’t write his own books, like many authors. He’s had 15 of them and most don’t make any money.
Personal financial disclosures do not require candidates to specify income amounts, but rather give ranges: Last year’s Crippled America, for example, made him between one million and five million dollars.
Other recent tomes are also still selling relatively well: Think Like a Champion, published in 2009, brought in less than $50,000 in income; Time to Get Tough, published in 2011, is still selling at a lively pace, bringing in between $100,000 and $1,000,000 in royalties last year.\
But many more of Trump’s books are barely selling at all: The Way to the Top(2004) made between $201 and $1,000, and How to Get Rich (2004) made between $5,001 and $1,000.
