This is the book Donald Trump received from Queen Elizabeth on June 3, 2019 in celebration of the Invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, which is known as D-Day. Starting on that day, 22 US Army divisions invaded Northern France to help England win the war.
The book, printed in 1959, was adorned with a gold-tooled crimson cover, silk end papers and featured hand-sewn red, white and blue headbands. It was originally in six volumes. Churchill wrote the books based on his own accounts and diaries of World War II.
However, here at Ishi Press, in reprinting this book, we have decided to dispense with with the gold-tooled crimson cover, the silk end papers and hand-sewn red, white and blue headbands. The Queen is shown presenting this book to Trump. "The Queen shows Trump and Melania US artifacts from Royal Collection" and "Queen Elizabeth II Shows Trump Royal Artifacts".
When we saw the Queen presenting this book to Trump, we were wondering if she was being serious or sarcastic. It is known on this side of the pond that Trump does not read. Doesn't the Queen know that?
We have tried to find in the videos a picture of Trump holding this book in his hands and leafing through the pages. The best I could find was a picture of Trump looking at the book. I do not know if Trump ever picked up the book and held it in his hands. I doubt he touched it
It is known that prior to meetings with important foreign leaders such as Kim of North Korea or Putin of Russia, his State Department staff would prepare two or three page memos for Trump to read so he would understand the issues between the countries. However, it was difficult to get Trump to read them. Instead, Trump relied on his "gut feelings" about these people.
