Former US President Donald Trump is reportedly making millions from his coffee table book, "Our Journey Together," which went on sale in late November 2021.

The book, with photographs detailing his presidency, is being sold for $75 and $230 if signed by him. Two sources told CNN that sales of "Our Journey Together" grossed $20 million in less than two months since its release. Part of its popularity among the former President's base is the captions, which were all written by him, and most of them feature unbridled hot takes on his political rivals.

Sergio Gor, a longtime Republican operative who founded Winning Team Publishing to publish the book, said that they did an "initial print run of 200,000 copies." Gor's partner in the company is Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr. This is the only book the two have published, but Gor said that he has signed two more authors.

In less than two days on sale, via Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, the signed copies of the book were selling into thousands. The unsigned ones were also selling quickly. Gor said that new orders for the book that features around 300 images chronicling Trump's time in the White House likely won't be filled until late February or early March. This is due to supply chain issues in the US, as there isn't enough paper to make more copies of the book, reported Yahoo!

The former President reportedly received a multimillion-dollar advance for the book. To put it together, he spent several nights at Mar-a-Lago, Florida going through about 8,000 photographs that Gor and his assistants identified for possible publication. About 90% of those images were taken by White House photographers and therefore are in the public domain.

After finalizing the images, Trump spent several more nights signing copies. As for the captions of the photographs, some of them were printed and others reproduced in his handwriting. Under one image, which shows him meeting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Trump wrote, "Attempting to listen to crazy Nancy Pelosi in the Oval Office -- such natural disagreement." In another caption, Trump referred to her as "f***ing crazy." In the book, Trump also wrote that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg would "come to the White House and kiss my a**." He also wrote that he "didn't like" Senator John McCain "even a little bit."
