Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the authors.

A call to action from three of Washington's premier political scholar-journalists, One Nation After Trump offers the definitive work on the threat posed by the Trump presidency and how to counter it.

American democracy was never supposed to give the nation a president like Donald Trump. We have never had a president who gave rise to such widespread alarm about his lack of commitment to the institutions of self-government, to the norms democracy requires, and to the need for basic knowledge about how government works. We have never had a president who raises profound questions about his basic competence and his psychological capacity to take on the most challenging political office in the world.

Yet if Trump is both a threat to our democracy and a product of its weaknesses, the citizen activism he has inspired is the antidote. The reaction to the crisis created by Trump's presidency can provide the foundation for an era of democratic renewal and vindicate our long experiment in self-rule.

The award-winning authors of One Nation After Trump explain Trump's rise and the danger his administration poses to our free institutions. They also offer encouragement to the millions of Americans now experiencing a new sense of citizenship and engagement and argue that our nation needs a unifying alternative to Trump's dark and divisive brand of politics - an alternative rooted in a new economy, a new patriotism, a new civil society, and a new democracy. One Nation After Trump is the essential audiobook for our era, an unsparing assessment of the perils facing the United States and an inspiring road map for how we can reclaim the future.

great book, one drawback...

This is an excellent book that every American should read. I just wish they had hired a professional to read it. At times it was like listening to a radio talk show host....a little annoying at times. Nevertheless, a great book.

Pleasurable Factual Density, much needed

With alarms sounding around the clock about everything from tweets to Melania's hurricane attire this book digs deep and dispenses with the alarmist mentality of general anti-Trump writings and interviews. Facts reign supreme and a forward looking gaze mitigate against the dark cloud that many of us see when looking at the immediate effects and implications of a Trump election and presidency.

Why few authors should record their own books

These guys are no Al Franken. They did extensive work but I recommend reading this, not listening to it. I listen to books while driving. This book is better for drifting off to sleep.

Nothing but ranting about Trump

I'm center-right on Economic issues (don't add to the debt during good times) and moderately left wing on social issues (gay marriage, immigration, marijuana). But even I found this book far-left-wing. Mostly the writers just kept presenting evidence about how bad Trump is for America (all of which is true), and a few minutes of suggested policy changes.

Insights we all need to hear

I loved this book. It lays out how Trump won and what we must do as a nation to defeat him. I highly recommend it to every one seeking deeper understanding of how we got here and where we go from here. Let’s just pray that we are able to achieve the goals laid out herein before we end up in a nuclear war with North Korea!

wrong conclusions, wrong medicine

The Neoliberal center is what brought us Trump. He is a consequence of the democratic party carrying more about money than people, and tough you correctly point that out, you refuse to even contemplate that the center of the Democratic Party is so unpopular that it lost over 1000 seats in the last 8 years and could not even win against Donald Trump. Calling this sexism and racism is a wrong headed, malicious, counter factual, self serving myth. Elizabeth Warren or Tulsi Gabbard both could have won. It was the arrogance of the Democratic Party that lost. It was not even just Hillary Clinton. The backlash against Obama was about Timothy Geithner, drone strikes, mass evictions, bankers getting of scott free while taking fat bonuses from their no restrictions TARP bailout money, violence against water protectors, police violence against black lives while Obama was present and on and on. The DNC limited debates, they locked out independent voters six months before primaries, they closed polling stations and there is even credible evidence of actual criminal election fraud that was perpetrated during the primaries by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. 123,000 voters were purged from the Democratic primary in Brookline alone! And this information all pressures WikiLeaks. The real election fraud happened during the primaries and the voters elected Trump because they were too smart to fall for the better of two evils argument again. They drew a line in the sand and the Democratic Party is ignoring it. If not outright criminal, the primaries were most certainly an arrogant, insulting ethical slap in the face to any aware socially conscious person who was really paying attention. This is not fake news and that line in the sand is still there. Unfortunately for all of us, more than 2/3 of the democratic party is on the wrong side of that line and although there may be some gains in 2018, it is not going to be because of the people want to move to the center.

More reasons for revolution

Trump has lied and with the help of his comrades made a mockery of our election process and a joke of our country. He needs to go and the sooner the better. He’s nothing more than a sorry excuse for a man and a human being in general. Just a waste of air.

Political review of the mess Donald Trump has created

Overall a good book, but probably would not listen to it again. Recommend to anyone interested in the disaster that Trump has put this country in.
