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.

They're ordering to keep up with fundraising.
If someone donates 50 dollars or more to Trump, they get a signed copy of the book.
They're just keeping up with demand.
It's the Russians wot dunnit!

Seriously, if you write a book and cash in on it, that's about some of the most honest work you can do. Works the same on crowdfunding sites, sure you can do the minimal donation but if you donate more you get a perk or perks for donating. If Bernie Sanders wrote a book, and if you donated $50 to Bernie for president, and you got a copy of his book along with that donation I would have no issue with it. Same if Clinton, Gabbard, Bush, etc.
The people donate knowing full well that book isn't $50, but they feel they're getting their value out of it and still donating. I have no issues at all with this type of funding. Same as the Ron Paul example above, it was a shirt, same concept although I think a book might be more productive. Now if any of these people read the book, who knows, but that's not the topic of discussion.
