This New York Times bestselling Trump biography from a major American intellectual explains how a renegade businessman became one of the most successful -- and necessary -- presidents of all time.
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 sixteen 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 United States -- 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.

  • A great historian misses the maek

    By Mrm9591
    Big fan of his, but this book’s points are mostly Fox News regurgitation. Big miss.

  • The case for Trump

    By Gladius5815
    Excellent writing, in depth analysis, great historical parallels, fair and equilibriate criticism. The part describing the presidential campaign should be studied by friends and foes. The part covering the first two years of The Trump administration is still too early to be evaluated but presents an interesting counterpoint to the negative barrage of the media (90%). I strongly recommend this book to reasonable people who are curious and baffled by the Trump phenomenon. This book should be translated into different European languages and others as well. Fascinating, informative and thought provoking.
  • Fantastic

    Victor is the Prince of Prose! Thank You for the incredible insight. I think Dr. Krauthammer and Victor were cut from the same cloth only Victor drives illustrates his points on a deeper level and Charles spoke more broadly.
  • God bless you

  • I will support 2020

    By Big Cat
    I was a liberal who has finally seen the light. I just can’t support the left anymore. They are absolutely insane and hateful now. I really believe Trump loves this country and will be supporting him. Please read this book my liberal friends and don’t deny the truth.
