President Donald Trump is not happy with CNN for choosing what he called the ‘worst’ picture of him on a new book. The president who is image conscious didn’t like the picture CNN chose for him.
On Monday, Trump tweeted that he was displeased with the cover art for a new book from CNN about the 2016 Presidential Election.
Unprecedented was released in December 2016 and is a chronicle of Trump’s shocking win. The author was CNN writer Thomas Lake.
CNN’s website describes the book as a deeply reported account of the fight for the presidency between Trump — “a blustery billionaire and reality TV star with no military or government experience, no respect for the rules of politics and no fear of offending people” — and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“@CNN just released a book called ‘Unprecedented’ which explore the 2016 race & victory,” he wrote. “Hope it does well but used worst cover photo of me!”
This isn’t the first time Trump has fought the media for making use of bad pictures of him. He once complained to NBC News President Deborah Turness that the outlet runs a “nice” picture of him and instead chose one that made him look like he had a double-chin.
