Books By Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump Are Coming Out This Summer

May is going to be a big month for Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton.

The former president’s daughter and the current president’s daughter both have books coming out in May, with Trump’s “Women Who Work” hitting shelves May 2 and Clinton’s “She Persisted” landing May 30.

Clinton announced the release of her children’s book on Twitter Thursday, writing: “Persistence has changed the course of history - I’m so excited to share stories of girls & women who didn’t take no for answer.” That list of women includes Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller and Oprah Winfrey.

Trump’s book is written as a career guide, with the tagline: “Rewriting the Rules for Success.”

“After appearing on ‘The Apprentice’ years ago and receiving a flood of letters from young women asking for guidance I realized the need for more female leaders to speak out publicly in order to change the way society thinks and talks about “women who work,” Trump wrote in a teaser. “So I created a forum to do just that.”

Clinton and Trump have been long-time friends though, according to Clinton, the two took a break during the election.

In an interview before Donald Trump won the presidency, Clinton explained that the pair wouldn’t be speaking before Election Day, but they would definitely connect after.

“Our friendship started before politics, so it will last beyond politics,” Clinton told E! News.
