Ex-President Donald Trump is planning to reveal private letters from celebrities, and the public is going nuts. According to Breitbart News, the former president’s forthcoming book, titled “Letters To Trump,” would demonstrate how many who now oppose him formerly supported him during his 2016 campaign.
“The book includes correspondence with such wide-ranging figures as royal world leaders like Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana; cultural figures like Clint Eastwood, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jackson; sports stars like Shaquille O’Neal; and former presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. It also has correspondence Trump had with foreign leaders like Chinese President Xi Jinping, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro,” Breitbart reported.
“I think they’re going to see a very fascinating life. I knew them all — and every one of them kissed my ass, and now I only have half of them kissing my ass,” he quipped in his interview with Breitbart.
Donald Trump Jr., the former president’s eldest son, stated that celebrities’ treatment of his father changed after he decided to run for office.
“My father has lived an amazing life and has been around some of the most interesting people in the world,” he said to Breitbart News. “It’s amazing how quickly their adoration of him changed when he ran for office as a Republican. ‘Letters to Trump’ shows you exactly how they felt about him and how phony their newfound disdain truly is.”
John F. Kennedy Jr. sent one of the letters after Trump visited the offices of his magazine “George.”
“Dear Donald,” Kennedy said. “Many thanks for joining us the other day at the George offices to discourse on politics, New York, men, and women. Our staff thoroughly enjoyed your remarks and I trust you found the questions thought-provoking. You were most generous to make the time. Thanks again. -John Kennedy.”
Trump stated that Kennedy was a friend and that he anticipated Kennedy would run for the Senate and eventually become president.
“He was a great guy. He was a friend of mine,” Trump said. “Even though we were of a different persuasion, I believe he would have run for the Senate and that he would have been president someday. He was a handsome guy. He was a fantastic guy. He had the ‘it factor,’ and he would have gone to the top of the world in the Kennedy family.”
Now, prominent individuals such as Jay Leno and Hillary Clinton are shouting that they never gave Trump permission to publish their letters in his book.
“Jay did not release, nor authorize any use of any letter to Mr. Trump,” a representative for Leno said to Newsweek.
A Clinton spokeswoman took it far more personally.

“Nothing says deeply-insecure-has-been quite like publishing private correspondence with the hope that people will believe you once garnered respect,” Nick Merrill said to Newsweek. “Feels like the adult equivalent of when a toddler proudly presents you with what they’ve done on the potty.”CONTINUE READING…
