Donald Trump Jr. can’t find his book for sale in airports, and he’s not happy about it.
The president’s eldest son tweeted on Saturday that he hasn’t noticed Triggered in airport bookstores that he’s visited, and speculated it’s because of “Usual BS.”
Several friends asked me why they can’t find my book TRIGGERED at various airport stores? @hudsonbooks I am told its avail at a few, but I’ve been in 7 airports this week & haven’t seen it. Why not have the #1 book? 🤔 Usual BS I suppose?— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 30, 2019

Trump Jr.’s tweet tagged the Twitter account of Hudson Booksellers, the company that operates bookstores in several North American airports. As of Monday morning, Hudson hadn’t replied to Trump Jr.’s complaint.
In his tweet, Trump Jr. referred to Triggered, vaguely,as “the #1 book,” although that’s not entirely true. His book did debut at No. 1 on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction bestseller list, but was knocked from its perch last week by A Warning, the anonymously written book critical of President Trump’s administration. It still seems to be selling respectably, though; on Monday, it was the No. 8 bestselling book on Amazon.
Trump Jr.’s book is for sale on the Hudson Booksellers website, although of course that doesn’t mean it’s being stocked in the company’s brick-and-mortar stores along with those little packs of four Advils that cost $5. Newsweek reports that Hudson didn’t respond to a request for comment about Trump Jr.’s tweet by the magazine.
