Trump's attorney has filed a C&D with the publisher.

Trump has a history of threatening lawsuits which never come to fruition, but I don't see how this can end well for him. Either he loses (because 1st Amendment), or he loses (because he doesn't follow through with an obviously bullshit threat) and looks weaker. Or he wins (unlikely), and turns the book into a cause and guaranteed run-away best seller beyond its already impressive reception.

The publisher responded... by releasing the book early.

I want to put that publisher on my Christmas Card list!
