Former President Donald Trump is endorsing more than just political candidates these days. The former commander in chief is touting the release of a new children's book by former Pentagon Chief of Staff Kash Patel called "The Plot Against the King."

The picture book tells a child- and Trump-friendly version of the 2016 election, in which "Hillary Queenton" attempts to prevent "King Donald" from working to "Make the Kingdom Great Again."

On Truth Social, his short form social media platform, Trump wrote, "The Plot Against the King is the true story about the Russia Collusion Hoax, written for children, by my friend @Kash."

"Live the tale thru the eyes of great characters like the handsome King Donald and Kash the Wizard," continued the former president. "This story showcases how Hillary Queenton and a Shifty Knight tried to destroy our democracy, but truth and the MAGA King prevailed. Support this great patriot, educate our children, and put a copy in every school across our land."

Additional characters in the tale include Rep. Adam Schiff (R-Calif.), who appears in the form of a "shifty knight," and former FBI Director James Comey, who is cast as a slug wrangler named "Keeper Komey."

The story revolves around the quest of Patel's character — a wizard named "Kash the Distinguished Discoverer" — to investigate the plot against King Donald at the behest of "Duke Devin" — a character representative of former Congressman and current Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes. 

References to the Steele Dossier are made, and the book closes with the banishment of the shifty knight, Hillary Queenton, and Keeper Comey from the kingdom "forever."

The book's publisher is Beacon of Freedom Publishing House, an imprint of Brave Books.
