The Donald is not happy about this one.
One night last week, comedian Elijah Daniel got the brilliant idea (after having a few drinks) to write the world’s next great American literary masterpiece: a gay erotic novel starring Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump.
i’m going to get drunk tonight and write an entire donald trump sex novel like 50 shades of grey & put it on amazon tomorrow i swear to god.

The final product of Daniel’s efforts? A 10-page erotic novella titled Trump Temptation: The Billionaire & The Bellboy.
The premise? Trump becomes involved with a bellboy working through an internship program at The Trump Hotel in Hong Kong. "This was my first time in a big city," the book’s description on Amazon notes, in Trump’s fictional narration. "It was all I could have ever dreamed of, and more. But little did I know, it was all about to change."
The hilarious gay erotic e-book has gotten a lot of attention. However, the best part is it probably wouldn’t have gotten so much press if Trump himself hadn’t tweeted a link to the book.
Was Trump trolling himself? Who knows. But his tweet resulted in the book becoming a massive success, reportedly reaching the number one sales slot in the "humorous erotica" and "gay erotica" categories on Amazon.
This isn’t the first time Daniel has played with a fictionalized gay Trump romance.
"It’s been a long-running Twitter joke spread by my followers that I’m Donald’s gay lover," Daniel joked with The Huffington Post. "Which is not true, Mom. I promise."
Due to the massive success of his Trump gay erotica, Daniel is launching some new non-Trump related projects, including an educational docu-series called "Elijah Daniel is Insane" and a scripted series that follow a "YouTube celeb" duo who move to Los Angeles to "make it" called "Social."
As for the reception of Trump Temptation: The Billionaire & The Bellboy?
"Everyone’s loved it, weirdly enough," Daniel said. "I thought I’d at least get a little bit of negativity, but I really haven’t."
Thanks for our new favorite book, Elijah!
