Publisher Description

This New York Times bestselling Trump biography from a major American intellectual explains how a renegade businessman became one of the most successful -- and necessary -- presidents of all time.
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.

Fair assessment!

Finally some facts in one book to highlight and use as a reference

You Want Facts Well Researched? You’re In For it Now!

Doubtful as to how well this author tells the tale of Trump? Sample chapter 11. Hanson is deep and wide, an honorable scholar, and well worth your time if you really care about the facts in the hands of a fair and honest and heroic mind and heart.

A great historian misses the maek

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