Description

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER

A call to action from three of Washington's premier political scholar-journalists, One Nation After Trump offers the definitive work on the threat posed by the Trump presidency and how to counter it.

American democracy was never supposed to give the nation a president like Donald Trump. We have never had a president who gave rise to such widespread alarm about his lack of commitment to the institutions of self-government, to the norms democracy requires, and to the need for basic knowledge about how government works. We have never had a president who raises profound questions about his basic competence and his psychological capacity to take on the most challenging political office in the world.

Yet if Trump is both a threat to our democracy and a product of its weaknesses, the citizen activism he has inspired is the antidote. The reaction to the crisis created by Trump’s presidency can provide the foundation for an era of democratic renewal and vindicate our long experiment in self-rule.

The award-winning authors of One Nation After Trump explain Trump’s rise and the danger his administration poses to our free institutions. They also offer encouragement to the millions of Americans now experiencing a new sense of citizenship and engagement and argue that our nation needs a unifying alternative to Trump’s dark and divisive brand of politics—an alternative rooted in a New Economy, a New Patriotism, a New Civil Society, and a New Democracy. One Nation After Trump is the essential book for our era, an unsparing assessment of the perils facing the United States and an inspiring roadmap for how we can reclaim the future.

    This book seems written to appeal to those who feel Trump is a terrible president, and it maintains that premise throughout. It merely reflects the opposing groups of "conservatives" and "liberals" from the point of view that since Trump heavily favours conservative policies and actions, and is opposed to those of liberals, generally, it really does little to resolve anything. I gave up on this book. It actually embarrasses me to see that some very smart people still support the "America Busting" actions and policies of Obama! And I don't like the idea of a book that teaches readers how to destroy whatever Trump does that does not suit far left liberals. Trump is the legally elected President of this great country! If some people don't like what he says and does, they are required by law to deal with that by opposing him within the law. Obama showed how a prejudiced president can drag the country to the edge of a great cliff, but he could not push it over because American citizens finally realised what he was doing and stopped him. Obama continues to "hang around" Washington, trying to destroy Trump so he can take back the presidency. This book will bias the reader against Trump and for Obama's "secret state" which he tries to orchestrate living just down the street from the White House, using money provided by George Soros, as well as a considerable amount illegally taken from US taxpayers. I don't know if this should count as a review because I could not finish the book, though I did skim through the parts I could not read to make sure the author did not change his position, etc. He didn't. Stuff like this book will do nothing but make things worse than they already are. I give the book a "zero" star rating but I have to select at least one, so I did. If you are looking for a book of dubious validity which wants to show you how you can destroy Trump's presidency so Obama can become President for endless time, and you believe that the economy should continue to be puffed up, then, exploded to make America accept Islam, turn from Christianity, etc., and watch as most Americans (including you and me!) slide down the steep slope of the left'S plan to make America sick and powerless, this book is for you! I can't stand it.
