In the tradition of Theodore White’s landmark books, the definitive look at how Donald J. Trump shocked the world to become president.
From Roger Stone, a New York Times best-selling author, longtime political adviser, friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes the first in-depth examination of how Trump’s campaign tapped in to the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that almost no one saw coming.
In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, given little credence to his chances. Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invective and dismissal of the mainstream media. Here is the first definitive explanation about how the “silent majority” shifted the election to Donald Trump in reliable Democratic Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, thus handing him the presidency.
Stone, a longtime Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Donald Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among “Forgotten Americans” despite running a guerrilla-style grassroots campaign to compete with the smooth-running and free-spending Clinton political machine.
From the start Trump’s campaign was unlike any seen on the national stage – combative, maverick, and fearless. Trump’s nomination was the hostile takeover of the Republican Party and a resounding repudiation of the failed leadership of both parties whose policies have brought America to the brink of financial collapse as well as endangering our national security.
Here Stone outlines how Donald Trump skillfully ran as the anti-Open Borders candidate as well as a supporter of American sovereignty and how he used the globalist trade deals like NAFTA to win over 3 of 10 Bernie Sanders supporters. The veteran adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Trump charts the rise of the alt-conservative media and the end of the mainstream media monopoly on voter-impacting information dissemination. This is an insider’s view that includes studying opposition research into Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton’s crimes and the struggle by the Republican establishment to stop Trump and how they underestimated him.
