Summary
"With wit and piercing insight, Joy-Ann Reid calculates the true price of the Trump presidency. Is Donald Trump running the "longest con" in U.S. history? What will be left of America when he leaves office? Candidate Trump sold Americans a vision that was seemingly at odds with their country's founding principles. Now in office, he's put up a "for sale" sign--on the prestige of the presidency, on America's global stature, and on our national identity. At what cost have these deals come? [This book] delivers an urgent accounting of our national crisis from one of our foremost political commentators. Three years ago, Donald Trump pitched millions of voters on the idea that their country was broken, and that the rest of the world was playing us "for suckers." All we needed to fix this was Donald Trump, who rebranded prejudice as patriotism, presented diversity as our weakness, and promised that money really could make the world go 'round. Trump made the sale to just enough Americans in three key swing states to win the Electoral College. As president, Trump's raft of self-dealing, scandal, and corruption has overwhelmed the national conversation. And with prosecutors bearing down on Trump and his family business, the web of criminality is circling closer to the Oval Office. All this while Trump seemingly makes his administration a pawn for the ultimate villain: an autocratic former KGB officer in Russia who found in the untutored and eager forty-fifth president the perfect "apprentice." How did we get here? What is the hidden impact of Trump, beyond the headlines? Joy-Ann Reid's essential book examines why he succeeded, and whether America can undo the damage he has done. Through interviews with American and international thought leaders and in-depth analysis, Reid situates the Trump era within the context of modern history, examining the profound social changes that led us to this point. A deeply pertinent analysis, [this book] reveals the causes and consequences of the Trump presidency and contends with the future that awaits us."--Dust jacket
