Donald Trump Jr. is writing a book to be published late this year, according to Politico. President Trump's eldest son, who is to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-June, has signed a deal with Center Street Books for a tome to focus on "politics, current events, and the future of the MAGA movement," a source close to Trump tells the outlet. Attorney and literary agent Tom Winters reportedly negotiated on behalf of Trump, whose compensation is unknown.

In a statement, Trump says he's looking forward to "expressing my observations and opinions about this significant time in American history, the great achievements of my father's administration, the great people across this country who support him, and those who oppose him," per the Hill. Jamie Ross at the Daily Beast was just a bit surprised by the report. "Anyone who's stumbled across Donald Trump Jr.'s Twitter feed will know that he's an exciting literary talent that was just waiting to be discovered," Ross writes sarcastically.
