Sometimes humor (as in the way that these poems juxtapose Donald Trump’s words) can unmask the sheer absurdity of what is being said.
“Whether discoursing on politics, walls, gender issues, or his own excellent genes, Donald Trump’s poems are nothing if not beautiful. Terrific, in fact. Amazing.”
– Rob Sears
What if there’s a hidden dimension to Donald Trump; a sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing Trump’s words for signs of poetry.
What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the 45th President of the United States’ tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, Sears unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.
This groundbreaking collection of (strictly unauthorised) poems gives readers a glimpse of Donald Trump’s innermost thoughts and feelings on everything from the nature of truth, to what he hates about Lord Sugar. And it will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise and delight both students and critics alike.
Now with seventeen all-new poems! As we lurch deeper into the Donald Trump presidency, this timely publication also includes Sears’ scholarly footnotes and introduction, in which he excavates new critical angles and insights into the President’s poetry which the casual reader might initially overlook.
Here are four sample Donald Trump poems from this satirical collection…
