Publisher's Summary

Here is the first insider account of the precipitous fall of Hillary Clinton. How the scandals of a lifetime finally reached critical mass. How, in the last few days of the campaign, some on her staff saw the ghostly shroud of defeat creeping over them but were helpless to act, frozen by the self-denial of the group.

Here is an explanation of why the national media and their corporate owners kept Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren out of the race. Why they wanted their investment in the Clintons to work and how they were willing to go to great lengths to make that happen.

Don't have time to read the tens of thousands of leaked emails from inside the Clinton machine?

The author has done it for you and has come back from the experience with a stunning peek into the world of a political leader who privately declared that she wanted a hemisphere "with open trade and open borders".

Finally, here is the story of the rise of Donald Trump.

How his opponents sought to derail him.

This is the story of how Donald Trump's message and brand transcended the traps laid by his enemies. How, against all odds, he won the presidency. And here are the details of his plan to make American great again.

The Truth About the Clinton Machine's Scandals, Lies and Cover-ups

This book is a brave discussion of the scandals, power politics and cover-up lies of the Clinton machine. Having lived for 17 years in AR, I learned 1st hand of Bill's trail of sex scandals and Hillary's destructive actions to keep the women quiet. This book outs more and even more vicious scandals then I learned of while living there. More important, it details the Clinton campaign decisions that catered to a biased media, corporate donors and the old political guard at the expense of the Rust Belt and religious little people. THEY are the ones who voted for Trump because he spoke TO them and their needs, not AT them or OVER them as the rich and entrenched political elite always did. It names the reporters and networks marching in step and ignoring the many scandals that came to light during the Clinton campaign. It was "Entertaining" to learn of entertainers/celebrities who rabidly supported Clinton with profanity and vitriol aimed at Trump and his supporters. Celebrities/entertainers are celebrated for a talent,an art, beauty or famous families. Seldom are they celebrated for critical thinking and complex decision making. But, the book details how the biased networks allowed/encouraged anyone who was for Clinton and against Trump on center stage to vent their ignorance. I'll never listen to network news the same way anymore. If there was a fault, the author gave Trump a pass on his rambling tweets and politically out of control communications. He also went lightly on Trump's scandals (like Trump University). If you like Trump you will love this book. If you like Hillary you will hate this book but understand why she lost... and possibly re-evaluate your support for the scandalous and cover-up focused Clinton machine.

Gripping!

Behind the medias version, the real story of 2016 Presidential race is spellbinding. 'HOUSE OF CARDS' and 'SCANDAL' have nothing on the real life occurences.
MUST READ.

Wow great book.

This book is a behind the scenes look at how Donald Trump won the presidency. I came away with a much better attitude toward Reince Priebus. The author failed to communicate how the country fell in love with DJT thru watching his rally's on YouTube
