You Can Guess Who Donald Trump's Favorite Author Is

Donald Trump just admitted he has never read a presidential biography. But, fear not, because he's brought the work of his favorite novelist into the White House.

In just one week, President Donald Trump has issued an executive order aimed at rolling back Obamacare, reinstated the Mexico City Policy to prohibit federal aid to family planning organisations, instructed the Department of Homeland Security to start building a 1,900-mile long wall along the southern border with Mexico and let's not even begin to dissect the #MuslimBan that's at the forefront of everyone's minds this week.

Oh, and he's also made sure the White House kitchen is stocked with his favorite snacks, already started planning his first holiday away from the White House – a trip to his private club in Florida in early February – and thought long and hard about what artwork he'd like to hand in the Oval Office.

Talk about a tough week, hey.

We mean for us, not him.

But, to give Trump his dues, it must be hard adjusting to his new life as leader of the Free World.

Especially given his wife, Melania and 10-year-old son, Barron have returned to their home in New York and he's now on his lonesome in that big mansion of his.

So, what does Trump do with all his precious time?

Well, according to his a new interview with the New York Times, he usually wakes up at 6am to watch cable television and looks through the morning newspapers: The New York Times, The New York Post and now The Washington Post.

However, now his meetings now begin at 9am – much earlier than they used to – it means his television time has seriously been reduced.

'Perhaps, he'll find the time to focus his attention on reading up on his new job, foreign policies, the First Amendment – which he seems so fond of crushing – or some presidential biographies to pick up some helpful tips?' you think.

Nope.

Don't be silly, the new President of the US doesn't read.

'I never have,' he told the Washington Post when asked about his experience reading presidential biographies.

'I'm always busy doing a lot. Now I'm more busy, I guess, than ever before,' he added.

Anyway, if he does want to pick up a book anytime soon, the Old State Department in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building has shelves full of the world's most respected, famous and intellectual texts.

Well, it would do if Trump hadn't filled it with a few copies of his own autobiographies.

It seems that the only author that Trump would make time for in his hectic schedule, is himself.
