This is proof that President Trump doesn't understand the First Amendment and the publisher of a critical work about him does. Kudos to the publisher for advancing the publishing date. Trump has only guaranteed more sales of the volume with his blast at the author. Trump's threat to sue would be laughed out of court. He is going to live with the book's statements and descriptions whether he likes it or not. I have no way of knowing whether the work is accurate, but that scarcely matters. Trump himself has disdain for facts and in his first year alone, the media have counted more than a thousand misstatements coming from his mouth. There is an irony that he says the book is filled with lies. Whether or not the work is truthful, Trump has already made it a candidate for best seller lists.
