Description

An instant New York Times bestseller: From an award-winning historian and regular Fox contributor, the true story of how Donald Trump has become one of the most successful presidents in history -- and why America needs him now more than ever
In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the United States -- and an extremely successful president.
Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America's interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad. We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump's. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.

    Big fan of his, but this book’s points are mostly Fox News regurgitation. Big miss.

    Excellent writing, in depth analysis, great historical parallels, fair and equilibriate criticism. The part describing the presidential campaign should be studied by friends and foes. The part covering the first two years of The Trump administration is still too early to be evaluated but presents an interesting counterpoint to the negative barrage of the media (90%). I strongly recommend this book to reasonable people who are curious and baffled by the Trump phenomenon. This book should be translated into different European languages and others as well. Fascinating, informative and thought provoking.
  • Fantastic

    Victor is the Prince of Prose! Thank You for the incredible insight. I think Dr. Krauthammer and Victor were cut from the same cloth only Victor drives illustrates his points on a deeper level and Charles spoke more broadly.
  • God bless you

    I was a liberal who has finally seen the light. I just can’t support the left anymore. They are absolutely insane and hateful now. I really believe Trump loves this country and will be supporting him. Please read this book my liberal friends and don’t deny the truth.

    I am a Democrat who, sadly, is seeing my beloved party become radicalized. I am not of the same mindset of many of the new views coming from congress. I must be honest. I view Trump as not a Republican but as a true outsider. He has few friends and little support. Read this book! It is not a book about anything but the state of politics in America. It is important for people of all parties to really drop the us vs them attitudes and become honest and independent thinkers. This book shines the light of truth on the current state of affairs. Openly and honestly.
