Donald Trump is set to reveal 150 letters that celebrities sent him – including one from Oprah Winfrey in which she writes ‘too bad we’re not running for office, what a team’ – in a new book that will be published next month.
The former President will include letters he received from presidents, royals including the late Princess Diana, world leaders, celebrities and business executives in his new book, called ‘Letters to Trump’.
The book from Winning Team Publishing will include letters from former Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton as well world leaders including North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, Russian President Vladimir Putin and former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
The book, set to be published on April 25, will also include letters from Hillary Clinton, Michael Jackson, former senator Ted Kennedy and the late American golfer Arnold Palmer.
One of the letters is written by Winfrey after Trump sent her a book excerpt from his book ‘The America we Deserve’, which was published in 2000 before he became President. In the book, the former President had written that his ‘first choice for Vice President would be Oprah Winfrey’.

The book includes a hand-written note from Oprah to Trump in January 2000 thanking him for recognizing her integrity in a book he wrote at the time and suggesting that they run for public office together
In the hand-written letter, Winfrey writes: ‘Donald, I received the book excerpt. I have to tell you, your comments made me a little weepy. It’s one thing to try and live a life of integrity – still another have people like yourself notice. Thank you, Oprah.’
At the bottom of the letter first published by Axios, the iconic talk show host adds: ‘Too bad we’re not running for office. What a team!’
Trump wrote in his book, which will cost $99 or $399 for a signed edition, that he still thinks Winfrey is ‘amazing’. But he added that Winfrey does not feel the same way.
‘Sadly, once I announced for President, she never spoke to me again,’ Trump writes.
The publisher Winning Team Publishing last year released Trump’s photo book ‘Our Journey Together’. That book grossed over $20 million in sales in the first two months alone.
Sergio Gor, the founder of Winning Team Publishing, told DailyMail.com: ‘What do presidents, royals, celebrities, and business titans have in common? They all love Donald Trump.
‘Long before entering politics, Donald Trump lived an extraordinary life. No book highlights his iconic relationships like Letters to Trump, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with our readers.’
The book will also include letters from Kim Jong-Un, who Trump says he keeps in touch with.
Trump famously declared in 2018 that he and Kim ‘fell in love’ after exchanging letters, but three meetings with the North Korean leader failed to persuade him to give up his nuclear bombs and missiles.
Other letters to be featured in the book come from Trump’s 2016 Democratic rival Hillary Clinton; Princess Diana; former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, father of Chris and Andrew Cuomo; golf star Arnold Palmer; renowned actress and singer Liza Minnelli; and television host Jay Leno.
