Publisher's Summary

From an award-winning historian and regular Fox contributor, the true story of how Donald Trump has become one of the most successful presidents in history - and why America needs him now more than ever.

In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over 16 well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the US - and an extremely successful president.

Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America's interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad. We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump's. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.

The definitive account of Trumps first three years in office

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Hanson executes an erudite, informed and sober analysis of an oft-controversial president, in a manner that no one else can.

I urge Trump supporters and opponents alike to read this book with an open mind and to formulate their own conclusions.

Outstanding & Truthful

An excellent summation of not only Trumps first 3 years but an overview of the hate from the Dems, MSM and Hollywood elites.
