Donald Trump Jr.’s first book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,” has debuted at #1 on the New York Times’ Bestseller list, according to The Daily Caller.
Triggered defeated its competition for the #1 spot in the nonfiction category, finishing ahead of Brian Kilmeade’s new historical book “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers.” The president’s eldest son took to Twitter yesterday to make the announcement.
His book launch featured two high-profile events involving Trump and his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, clashing with critics over the book. They first appeared on The View and got into heated arguments with hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg after numerous loaded questions and criticism of his father, President Donald Trump.
Then the two appeared at UCLA for an event with Turning Point USA, alongside TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk, to promote the book; however, after it was announced that the Q&A would be cancelled due to Kirk facing weeks of tough questions from far-right activists, the mostly pro-Trump audience booed and heckled the trio until they were forced to cut the two-hour event short after just 30 minutes.
Trump eventually found a friendly crowd of hundreds of supporters on November 12th, with a book-signing event in Scottsdale, Arizona.
