THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"The most important thing that has been written to date about what is in front of the American people in the next presidential election." —Nicolle Wallace
An extraordinary view into the politics of our times, Tired of Winning explores how Donald Trump remade the Republican Party in his own image—and the wreckage he’s left in his wake.
Packed with new reporting, Tired of Winning: Donald Trump and the End of the Grand Old Party tracks Trump’s improbable journey from disgraced and defeated former president to the dominant force, yet again, in the Republican Party.
From his exile in Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump has become more extreme, vengeful, and divorced from reality than he was on January 6, 2021. His meddling damaged the GOP’s electoral prospects for third consecutive election in 2022. His legal troubles are mounting. Yet he re-emerged as the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
Jonathan Karl has known Donald Trump since his days as a New York Post reporter in the 1990s, and he covered every day of Trump’s administration as ABC News’s chief White House correspondent. No one is in a better position to detail the former president’s quest for retribution and provide a glimpse at what the GOP would be signing up for if it once again chooses him as its standard bearer.
In 1964, Ronald Reagan told Americans it was “a time for choosing.” Sixty years later, Republicans have their own choice to make: Are they tired of winning?
Donald Trump is one of history's great losers and is dragging the Republicans down with him, argues this hard-hitting chronicle of Trump's post-presidential doings. ABC News Washington correspondent Karl (Betrayal) surveys the past three years, beginning with the waning days of Trump's presidency, when his cabinet considered deposing him as mentally incapacitated while he flirted with declaring martial law. In the years afterward, Karl notes, Trump's political losing streak continued in the 2022 midterm elections when several of the Republican congressional and senate candidates he endorsed lost winnable seats, while he struggled under an avalanche of indictments that threaten him with prison. Yet Trump continued to dominate the GOP as politicians lined up at Mar-a-Lago to curry his favor, even at the price of parroting his claim to have won the 2020 election—a line that weighed down Republicans' chances in the general election. Karl shows a brooding, frustrated, narcissistic Trump dining with antisemites, cheating at golf, raging at a world that rejects his delusions, and gnawing for consolation on absurd election denial theories, including a deranged fixation on the notion that his presidency would somehow be reinstated in the summer of 2021. Drawing on his own meticulous reporting and interviews with Trump and his associates, Karl's portrait is uncompromising in its negativity. Trump haters will find plenty of red meat here.
