Dear Writers, We are looking for a writer who enjoys reading books about politics - and knows how to write about it without any bias. We are interested in a writer who can do legitimate research on Donald Trump and tell a story of where he came from, who he became, and who he is today. Write about his goals and dreams and how he actively pursues them to become the successful business man and leader that he is today - despite the controversy. We have another biography about Hillary Clinton's life and we need your help in combining the books. We have the text and we can forward it to you so you can combine the two books into one book. Please write about both biographies and how they differ in an intro/foreword and a conclusion. You must be able to list your references correctly and be completely genuine in your writing. You must know how to properly format with appropriate page breaks between chapters. Please include a title page, Georgia font, size 14, double spaced,...
