The Republican National Committee spent almost $100,000 to buy up copies of Donald Trump Jr.'s book, and it was probably a big reason he made it onto The New York Times bestseller list.
Donald Trump Jr.’s book sold 71,000 copies in the first week while the 2nd place non-fiction book sold just over 30,000 copies
He could have sold 30,000 copies through the RNC and his book would have still easily been the #1 book without them twitter.com... …
Replying to @nickconfessore
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.
So people here on the website have been talking about how the children of politicians get cushy jobs or sweet deals.
On the day of the book's release, the RNC offered a free signed copy of "Triggered" to anyone who donated more than $50 to the committee, which also presumably juiced sales of the book.
and trump has basically worked for free for the last 3 years donating his what 250k salary to various things so perhaps its their way of saying thanks or perhaps gasp they liked his "triggered book"
The Times reporter Nick Confessore said the RNC got more than its money's worth for the apparent bulk purchase of the book because Trump Jr. raised money for the Republican Party while promoting the book.

Donor mementos. Nothing wrong with that.
Nothing wrong with that. True.
But buying $100K worth of a book that the Presidents son wrote to give away as the memento?
Politics should not be a way for your family to make money.
