Delhi, Jan 3, 2017: CNN released book “Unprecedented” received visual critique from the newly elected US President Donald Trump. Trump tweeted the following, in context to the newly released book:

“CNN just released a book called ‘Unprecedented’ which explore the 2016 race and victory. Hope it does well but used worst cover photo of me.”

There are actually two versions of the book’s cover — an “Inaugural edition” displaying a serious looking Trump and another version that contains a collage of different photos from the election, including a large picture of Trump speaking at a podium. It is ambiguous as to which cover photo the President-elect was referencing as being “the worst”.

Check out NewsGram for latest international news updates.

CNN describes the book as a chronicle of the 2016 presidential elections and the president’s surprising win. It deems the book as an account on the fight for the presidency between Trump -a blustery billionaire and a reality TV star with no military or government experience, no respect for the rule of politics and no fear of offending people, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The 70 year old President is very conscious about his “image” in media as he had previously complained to NBC News President Deborah Turness also, that the network wouldn’t run a “nice” picture of him and instead chose one that made him look like he had a double-chin.

Criticising the US President Donald Trump for his protectionists policies, Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman on Saturday accused President Trump of not taking his jobs seriously. Following the protectisists measures taken by the US President, there could be “risks of disruptive trade war”, he said.

President Donald Trump has pledged to avoid any new foreign business deals during his term in office.

“He does not take the job seriously. He doesn’t say to himself that I am the most important official in the world; I have better do my homework for understanding the issue. ..He just goes that these are my gut feeling and hires people who make him feel good…that is a frightening prospect,” Krugman said responding to a query on his perception on Trump. On the economic issues President Trump’s gut feelings are “protectionist” and his views of America were “50 years out of date”.

“He wants America a heavy industrial country in the way it was when he was a young man. That is not just going to happen but he attempts to make it happen, which is extremely disruptive to America and to the global as a whole,” Nobel Laureate said. Krugman said he was until recently optimistic that Trump’s protectionist policies would not see the light of the day.

“Until about two weeks ago, I was quite optimistic that it would not happen. The reason was not because the President would get good economic advice but because the US businesses are invested in a globalised economy. All the investments the businesses have made is based upon the assumptions that the open trading system would continue. There is an enormous amount of fiscal capital and a large number of jobs are dependent on these value chains,” he said at the News18 Rising India Summit here.

Krugman further said: “I had assumed the influence of these business communities would be sufficient… that it would not happen. I am less optimistic now…we have seen reasonably sensible Economic Council Head was fired, completely irrational tariff (was) imposed on steel and aluminium.”

The President also called for more mental institutions and hospitals in addition to the idea of arming teachers.

According to him, immediate issue is going to be confrontation not with China, but with Europe as the “steel tariffs” will hit Europe. He said there are possible risks of “disruptive global trade war”.

Speaking on Chinese economy he said, “China is a financial crisis waiting to happen. China is a widely unbalanced economy…the country is sustaining itself with a credit bubble that is waiting to burst…There is a significant risk of Chinese bubble burst.”
