Does a poet’s heart beat under Donald Trump’s brash exterior? Experience his best quotes and tweets, rearranged into poems and haikus. It’s a new word order
All I ask is fairness
People are constantly attacking my hair
I think it’s very unfair
Obama said he never met his uncle Oscar
Can you imagine if I made that statement?
It would be the electric chair
What if there’s another side to Donald Trump? A sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing The Donald’s words for signs of poetry.
What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the President Elect’s tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering, them, he unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.
This collection will give readers a glimpse of the Trump’s innermost thoughts and feelings, on everything from the nature of truth to what annoys him about Halle Berry - and will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise both students and critics alike.
“I’m very highly educated. I know words, I know the best words”
