Former ABC News political director Mark Halperin has signed a deal to publish a book on how to beat President Trump in 2020 as a part of his attempt to make a comeback in public life following sexual harassment accusations in 2017.
Politico reported Sunday that the former journalist was planning on publishing the book How to Beat Trump: America’s Top Political Strategists on What It Will Take after inking a deal with Regan Arts. Halperin, 54, interviewed 75 Democratic strategists for the book, among whom were David Axelrod and Donna Brazile.
The article goes on to state the following:
When news broke of his involvement, Axelrod tried to distance himself from Halperin, saying he regretted helping him in the first place.
“To those who have asked, I have known Mark Halperin as a reporter for 25 years. He emailed me three questions about the 2020 race for a book he was writing and I replied in a few sentences, without giving enough thought to how my participation would be used or interpreted,” the former Obama strategist said on Twitter. “By answering Halperin’s questions, I did not in any way mean to excuse his past, egregious behavior and, in retrospect, I regret responding at all.”
