Donald Trump Jr.'s "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us" topped the New York Times' nonfiction bestseller list on Wednesday.

The big picture: Trump's book was released on Nov. 5 and outlines his view of the left, their tactics and what he sees as a series of tricks meant to push conservatives out of the public arena.

  • Throughout the book, Trump defends his father's administration, bashing the Mueller report and dismissing accusations of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Of note: The book's rise to the top comes just days before "A Warning" is set to release, penned by the anonymous author of a controversial op-ed that infuriated President Trump in 2018.
