Former President Donald Trump has announced that he is writing a book called The crime of the century based on his allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“It’s the crime of the century,” Trump told onlookers Saturday in Austin, Texas, during the American Freedom Tour. “I’m writing a book about it called The crime of the century. I don’t think you will like it. You will be very depressed when you read it, but we want to do it for historical reasons.”
The title of the book reflects a phrase commonly used by Trump to describe his ongoing allegations of voter fraud in battleground states, which have been refuted in court more than 60 times.
In Austin, Trump continued to denounce the integrity of the election and insinuated that the votes had been tampered with, which cost him the presidency.
“It’s the biggest hoax, heist,” he said. “This is one of the greatest crimes in the history of our country. And sadly, prosecutors won’t do anything about it.”
Trump’s Saturday rally included an appearance by conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose documentary 2000 slippers alleged ballot box stuffing.
Last week, Trump and D’Souza took aim at Fox News and Newsmax for failing to provide coverage of the film, reviews disputed by the networks.
On Monday, Winning Team Publishing announced the book on Twitter.
“NEW BOOK ALERT: CRIME OF THE CENTURY by President Donald J. Trump!” More details to come at http://45books.com,” the company tweeted.
Founded by Sergio Gor and Donald Trump Jr., Winning Team Publishing bills itself as “the nation’s premier conservative publishing house.” It debuted in 2021 “to promote authors who represent the silent majority, America’s patriots first, and freedom-minded readers,” according to the company.
The announcement on Twitter drew mixed reactions.
“Will it be in the horror or fiction section?” a user asked.
“We lived through it for 4 years. I sure don’t need to read his one warrant to know what a crime it was,” said another.
Others were excited about the possibility of another Trump book.
“thanks for this. please tell me this is real, and you will make my day!!” another tweet read.
Trump is the author of nearly 20 books, including his popular The art of the market from 1987 and Our journey togetherwritten after his stint as 45th President.
