U.S. Constitution is Amazon Bestseller After Speech Criticising Trump $1 booklet tops US sales chart days after Muslim-American lawyer Khizr Khan offers to lend his copy to Republican candidate
Father of Muslim American soldier: ‘Donald Trump, you have sacrificed nothing’
A pocket version of the US constitution has become a bestseller on Amazon.
The 52-page booklet printed by the National Center for Constitutional Studies sells for $1 (75p) and was in the Top 10 bestselling books on Amazon.com on Saturday afternoon. The site produces an hourly list of its bestsellers.
The constitution emerged as a bestseller days after the Muslim-American lawyer Khizr Khan, whose son was killed while serving in Iraq, flashed a pocket constitution and offered to lend it to the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, during a speech at the Democratic national convention.
The version Khan used at the convention did not appear to be the same as the one that became popular on Amazon.
