Publisher's Summary

The definitive behind-the-scenes story of Trump's final year in office, by Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig, the Pulitzer-Prize winning reporters and authors of the number one New York Times best seller, A Very Stable Genius.

“Chilling.” (Anderson Cooper)
“Jaw-dropping.” (John Berman)
“Shocking.” (John Heilemann)
“Explosive.” (Hallie Jackson)
“Blockbuster new reporting.” (Nicolle Wallace) 
“Bracing new revelations.” (Brian Williams)
“Bombshell reporting.” (David Muir) 

The true story of what took place in Donald Trump’s White House during a disastrous 2020 has never before been told in full. What was really going on around the president, as the government failed to contain the coronavirus and over half a million Americans perished? Who was influencing Trump after he refused to concede an election he had clearly lost and spread lies about election fraud? To answer these questions, Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig reveal a dysfunctional and bumbling presidency’s inner workings in unprecedented, stunning detail.

Focused on Trump and the key players around him - the doctors, generals, senior advisers, and Trump family members - Rucker and Leonnig provide a forensic account of the most devastating year in a presidency like no other. Their sources were in the room as time and time again Trump put his personal gain ahead of the good of the country. These witnesses to history tell the story of him longing to deploy the military to the streets of American cities to crush the protest movement in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, all to bolster his image of strength ahead of the election. These sources saw firsthand his refusal to take the threat of the coronavirus seriously - even to the point of allowing himself and those around him to be infected. This is a story of a nation sabotaged - economically, medically, and politically - by its own leader, culminating with a groundbreaking, minute-by-minute account of  exactly what went on in the Capitol building on January 6, as Trump’s supporters so easily breached the most sacred halls of American democracy, and how the president reacted. With unparalleled access, Rucker and Leonnig explain and expose exactly who enabled - and who foiled - Trump as he sought desperately to cling to power.

A classic and heart-racing work of investigative reporting, this book is destined to be listened to and studied by citizens and historians alike for decades to come.

Riveting!

Many of the books about Trump's presidency focus too much on his tantrums. This is not one of them. I found this to be truthful without demonizing anyone, even Trump had his favorably moments to shine, All in all the authors reveal the horror show that unfolded in the last year of his presidency.

Riveting!!

I could not put this book down! As a political junkie, to hear the back stories was wonderful. Of course, all the information has been available before but knowing how certain things happened was interesting. Highly recommended for political junkies.

Trump 2.0

The story was interesting, but only because it chronicled all of the news stories I have been following for the last year. if you are looking for "the one" to knock your socks off and finally explain all of those things that haven't made a lick of sense....... this ain't it. if you just want a little justification for thinking TFG is, was, and ever will be the worst cancer to plague America ..... EVER..... then this may be the biography for you. enjoy!

Fantastic

I’ve read nearly every book written about Trump during and since his presidency. None compare to this! I learned so much and many questions I had were answered. Congress should have asked Leonnig and Rucker to investigate the insurrection since they knew much more about it than anything told in hearings so far. I finally understand why it took four hours for National Guard to assist at the Capitol on Jan 6. These writers/reporters are the best we have. Fabulous book!

Truly Jaw dropping!

So well done! The investigating, the writing, the presentation...it's all just so well done. The story of Trump's final year as president is harrowing. It's painful to realize how precarious it all was/is. This book helps you realize that we can't take any part of our democracy for granted.

Wow !

Did this book bring back memories of what many of us had to endure. Even though we knew about most of these events, to have it all put in context and then we realize ho that man really lived on the edge. We may never know just how close we came to loosing our democracy? What a rough four years it was!

Excellent Book

Great insights and explanations about a chaotic year. Some of the inner circle brought newfound admiration, some even more disdain for the harm they did. Well written and the reader was very fine in her delivery

Good performance, mediocre book

It's interesting to hear the story we all lived presented in chronological order as opposed to the constant flow of revelations as addendum to past stories mixed with the flood of daily news that came with this presidency.
However, there are no revelations here at all. If you read the paper daily, you already know everything here. Truly a missed opportunity to uncover the sordid details of a truly historic time. An entire book could have been written about the lead up to January 6 but this somehow came across as an incomplete summary.
Overall disappointing.

Informative!

This has been one of the best books I’ve read on this administration. Details are explained about the worst moments, days, weeks of Trump. The insurrection account was outstanding, as well as information about his cabinet!
