Washington Post Assigns Two Dozen Reporters To ‘Reveal’ Trump In New Book

Alex Pfeiffer White House Correspondent

The Washington Post is planning to release a comprehensive Donald Trump biography in August titled “Trump Revealed.”

The effort is headed by executive editor Martin Baron, who previously led the Boston Globe’s investigation into sexual abuse by Catholic priests.

The book will be released whether Trump wins the Republican nomination or not. Baron told the Associated Press in a statement that Trump is “major political figure and is expected to remain one.”

 

Over two dozen reporters and researchers are reportedly working on the book. It will be co-authored by reporter Michael Kranish and senior editor Marc Fisher.

The Post and Trump have had a contentious relationship throughout this election cycle. Trump has threatened to change libel laws if elected. He said about the Post, “believe me if I become president — oh, do they have problems. They’re going to have such problems.”

The book’s release date is set for August 23.
