A win-win for the Trumps and the RNC. Party raised about $500,000 off of the promotion, owing to donor interest in "Triggered." Guesstimating off the Books-a-Million discount price, Don Jr. could have sold around 4,000 books. Doesn't take too much more to hit the list.
An RNC spokesman previously told us "We haven’t made a large bulk purchase, but are ordering copies to keep up with demand."
I asked today how that squares with buying almost a hundred grand worth of books on a single day.
Answer: "We stand by our statement."
New FEC disclosures show a single large RNC payment of $94,800 to Books-a-Million in October, a few days before "Triggered" was released. An RNC spokesman confirmed that the expenditure was connected to their promotion of Don Trump Jr.'s book. https://t.co/vsmmsgrYCp
