The title of the book has yet to be announced, but CNN has learned that it will be released on September 21 by Simon & Schuster, who released Woodward’s first two bestsellers on the former president.
This time around, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist is working with Robert Costa of the Washington Post for an in-depth look at the end of the Trump presidency and his transition to the Biden administration. According to a description by the publisher, the book will cover the first few months of the Biden presidency.
Woodward’s first book on Trump, 2018’s “Fear,” details actions taken by senior officials and White House aides to prevent what they saw as an unhinged president, unable to control his own impulses and oblivious to danger that his rash decisions might bring.
“Rage,” which came out last year, took readers inside the Oval Office during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, confirming that Trump understood how contagious and deadly the virus was long before the American people are not made aware.
Trump declined to sit down for an interview with Woodward for âFear,â but he gave the reporter unprecedented access to âRage,â giving 18 open interviews, some in person and many over the phone.
It is not known if Trump agreed to give interviews to Woodward and Costa for the next book, but the couple sat down with Trump during the campaign in the 2016 presidential election. This interview served as inspiration. for both titles of Woodward’s early books
âReal power, I don’t even want to use the word fear,â Trump told Woodward and Costa in March 2016.
“I bring out the rage,” Trump also said. “I bring out the rage. I always have. I don’t know if it’s an asset or a handicap, but whatever it is, I do.”
