Two of the most well-sourced New York Times reporters are writing a book about Trump

Two of the most well-sourced political reporters in the country are publishing a book on President Donald Trump.

Random House announced on Tuesday that two of The New York Times’ top White House correspondents, Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush, will publish a book on the first year of the Trump administration.

The two reporters, who have long shared a byline on stories at the Times and Politico, have had some of the most newsmaking interviews with the president and broken some of the most interesting details about Trump’s thinking inside the White House.

They have even sat on a few scoops — Haberman, the most widely-read author in the Times last year, famously turned down the opportunity to break the announcement of Trump’s candidacy in The New York Times.

Though the book deal had been rumoured in the media world for weeks, it was kept largely under wraps in the publishing world. Many top publishers told Business Insider they were unaware that the book was being shopped.
