While I have not read any of Trump's books, they had a big impact on Jeff and he recommended Trump's books during the episode. We don't know which side of the aisle you're in, and Jeff acknowledged that when making the book recommendation. Breakthrough Success is a business based podcast, not a political one. Love him or hate him, a lot of people got value from Trump's books. Jeff got value from his books and wanted to provide value to Breakthrough Success listeners when I asked for three book recommendations. That's why he referenced Trump's books. I know that was a lengthy explanation but as Trump is at the center of politics right now, I wanted to make sure you can appreciate Jeff's great insights and his book recommendations regardless of which side of aisle you're in.
