Donald Trump: 'Don't Buy' The Washington Post Book About Me

And Marc Fisher, one of the book's author's, clearly didn't care about Trump's assessment. He tweeted, "And now we hear from a renowned book critic, Donald from Queens," followed by a link to Trump's own tweet.

The 431-page biography was written with the help of more than a dozen reporters who spent close to 20 hours interviewing the Republican presidential candidate about his life.

An adapted excerpt from the book reads, "Trump was gracious and generous with his time, took nearly all of our questions, and often extended the length of our interviews."

But Trump wasn't always cooperative and slammed the Post's owner, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

"Amazon is getting away with murder tax-wise. He's using The Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don't tax Amazon like they should be taxed," Trump said on Fox News.

And he officially banned Post reporters from all of his campaign events starting in June, calling the outlet's coverage "inaccurate."

"Trump Revealed: An American Journey of Ambition, Ego, Money, and Power" is now available for purchase online and in stores.
