In The Words of Julius Caesar

Recently there have been a number of reviews of Barack Obama’s memoir ‘A Promised Land’ and without exception they were all glowing reports about the book and the author. The collection of material concerning some of his time in the White House should be interesting.

There has also been some discussion online about a Trump presidency memoir although it may be too early to consider this as he is hoping to be there for another four years even though that would seem to be a fading dream now. As Trump uses Twitter as his main form of communication the memoir would be rather brief.

His memoir can actually be written in under 280 characters and even under the original limit of 140 characters, “Veni, Vidi, Vici. Ipsi circumvenit.” which translates to “I came. I Saw. I conquered. They cheated.” This tweet also allows a reader to devote the amount of time the memoir would deserve.
