President Donald Trump checkmated Hillary Clinton after the twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate complained about his new book.
Trump is publishing a new book that will reveal 150 private letters sent to him by celebrities and world leaders when they still loved him.
Among the letters includes one penned by Trump’s now-bitter rival Hillary.
Clinton’s spokesperson Nick Merrill said: “Of course, Trump didn’t seek permission to use their correspondence in Letters to Trump.
“Nothing says deeply insecure has been quite like publishing private correspondence with the hope that people will believe you once garnered respect.
“Feels like the adult equivalent of when a toddler proudly presents you with what they’ve done on the potty.”
A spokesperson for the book’s publisher, Winning Team Publishing, said: “The book comprises of a unique collection of correspondence either from President Trump or from public officials both foreign and domestic, or from private individuals.
“For those in public office at the time, no copyright protection arises.
“For the last category, Winning Team Publishing has either actual or implied consent for their publication.”
Jay Leno is also grumbling about the book.
“Jay did not release, nor authorize any use of any letter to Mr. Trump,” a representative of Leno’s from his production company, Big Dog Productions, said.
“Wait until you see what President Nixon, Princess Diana, and Michael Jackson wrote me,” Trump said yesterday.
One letter is from Oprah Winfrey in 2000 where she says: “Too bad we’re not running for office. What a team!”
Speaking about Winfrey, Trump says that “once I announced for president, she never spoke to me again.”
Winfrey wrote to Trump after he sent her a book excerpt from his 2000 book, “The America We Deserve,” where he said that his “first choice for vice president would be Oprah Winfrey.”
He wrote: “Americans respect and admire Oprah for her intelligence and caring.
“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.”
Oprah replied: “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.”
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, and many more.
The book is called “Letters to Trump.”
