Even though Donald Trump's suitability for presidential office has been criticised from far and wide in recent weeks, his success as an author cannot be disputed. Out of all the 2016 presidential candidates
, Trump is leading on book sales by a huge distance. His most recent book, "Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again", has certainly struck a chord with readers and it has sold over 36,000 hardcover copies this year alone.
Since 2015, Trump has sold just under a quarter of a million books. Ted Cruz has managed about 65,000 while Hillary Clinton has sold a mere 23,400. It seems Trump's fiery rhetoric about the poor state of the nation is being embraced by both voters
and readers alike.
