Kellyanne Conway, the former 2016 Donald Trump political director and longtime adviser, has sold 25,003 copies of her new biography since its release on May 24.
According to data obtained by The Daily Beast from NPD Book Scan, the memoir Here’s The Deal had early success after debuting on The New York Times best seller’s list. “In its first week, it became the #1 New York Times Bestseller!” On Friday afternoon, Kellyanne Conway triumphantly informed The Daily Beast. Conway’s biography did significantly better than Chris Christie’s, which was a stunning disaster, selling less than 3,000 copies in its first week and falling short of Trump’s costly picture book, which sold 70,000 copies.
Kellyanne Conway Blasted By Trump
Trump slammed Conway’s biography, which contains an account about how the ex Commander in Chief pondered pulling out weeks ahead of Election Day in 2016. Conway writes in an extract provided ahead of the book’s release that he considered dropping out after the notorious Access Hollywood tape surfaced, but that she urged him to continue in the race.
As The Daily Beast exclusively revealed, Kellyanne Conway’s biography takes aim at Trump for his unwillingness to acknowledge that he lost the 2020 election and claimed that the now ex-president pondered pulling out of the presidential campaign back in October 2016. Not only did Trump criticize Conway on Truth Social after the book’s release, but Trump spokesman Liz Harrington also told the Beast that Conway’s comments about Trump considering pulling out of the campaign were “absolutely incorrect.” Still, “Here’s the Deal” did significantly better than other White House autobiographies, such as Chris Christie’s (which sold less than 3,000 copies in its first week) and Meghan McCain’s.
