Loves books, hates 200-page reports. It's all in the bindings.

From Axios, the new politics site:

On a specific book recommendation: "I like a lot of books. I like reading books."

When asked about books on his desk, he showed us "Adams v Jefferson" by John Ferling. We asked if we should read it. "I wouldn't," he said.

From last May, Henry's look at reading in the House of Orange:

Donald John Trump (1946-  )
Businessman, television personality, author, politician

Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party for the presidency of the United States, is seventy years old today.

He is, according to himself a voracious reader and an all-round book enthusiast (“I have friends, somebody that's a great writer, where they write a book and call me up and say, 'Can you do me a favor, can you tweet it?' " "Can you," I interject, "tweet my book, please?" "I will!")

On June 1, 2016, a Hollywood Reporter asked Trump what he’s reading these days:

Before Trump trundles off to bed — actually, before that, never too tired, he plans to watch himself on Kimmel — I ask that de rigeur presidential question, which does not seem yet to have been asked of him. "What books are you reading?"
