Publisher's Summary

The presidency of Donald Trump marks a profound change in the trajectory of American government, politics, and culture. Like his administration, the movement that put him in office represents a phenomenon that is worth studying.

Donald Trump is unlike any president we've ever had. He is the only person ever elected to be commander in chief who has not first held public office or served as a general in the military. His principles grow out of five decades of business and celebrity success - not politics - so he behaves differently from traditional politicians.

In Understanding Trump, Newt Gingrich shares what he learned from more than two years helping Trump and his team throughout the campaign, the election, and during the first months of the presidency. Mr. Gingrich provides unique insight into how the new president's past experiences have shaped his life and style of governing. This book also includes Mr. Gingrich's thorough analysis of how President Trump thinks and makes decisions as well as the president's philosophy, doctrine, and political agenda going forward.

The audiobook edition features the following recordings of live speeches:

Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 2017

Joint Address to Congress, Feb. 28, 2017

The New Deal for Black Americans, Charlotte, Oct. 26, 2016

The Contract with the American Voter, Gettysburg, Oct. 22, 2016

    "Very interesting views of Trump positions"

    I enjoyed listening to Newt and feel that I know more about President Trump, his hopes for America, and his world views. I have always felt that Gingrich was very wise about the world of politics and this book reinforces that viewpoint. I also enjoyed listening to President Trump's speeches at the end of the audio book. I highly recommend this to anyone who is trying to keep up with the wild world of DC politics.

    "Clear, concise and to the point!"

    A+++

    My only regret is that Newt wasn't my history prof!

    His book succinctly dissects President Donald Trump, using his speeches and personal anecdotes that flesh out his amazing, non-political success story.

    His detailed historic analysis expands our depth of understanding as to the reasons he was elected.

    This book is the perfect graduation gift!

    It's subtext is about far more than President Trump. It represents an historic view of today's political climate, explaining both how we got here and where we may be headed if all goes as planned.

    May God bless the United States of America

    "Channelling Trump"

    A clear description of the Trump agenda through the tenured voice of an accomplished legislator. An uplifting explanation of how we still have time to take back the power of Washinton elites. Not through revolution, but individual voices connected to the legislative process by the use of technology. Establishing the priorities for the elected officials that no longer report to their constituents. A must read for any body looking to understand the phenomenon known as Trump.

    "Excellent"

    what would be even better than me reading this book would be for all Democrats and Republicans to read this book.
    it is perfect for people who don't understand Trump to learn who he really is and it explains so much.

    "Excellent book."

    I loved this book. Newt Gingrich is an excellent author and has a very good understanding of President Trump. I will recommend this book to others. I learned a lot about President Trump and enjoyed a book that did not trash Our President.
