It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America
The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States was met with shock by most political watchers. Controversies swirled throughout the campaign, whether they be Trump’s treatment of women or allegations of Russian collusion. His administration within the first year has seen attempts to disable big government through the gutting of multiple agencies. Trump supporters have seen this as cutting government waste; critics see it as silencing critics and lessening regulations that benefit big-money Trump supporters. The possible enrichment of Trump and family while he holds the presidency is considered a violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Trump’s leadership is seen as slipshod if not negligent, lagging behind in key appointments or appointing novices to key positions as result of loyalty and not merit. The tax reform is seen as a gift to the upper strata of wealth and a slap to key middle-class supporters. Donald Trump is seen as a clear and present danger to our nation. The reader will have to judge for themselves.
David Cay Johnston has covered Donald Trump for close to three decades. His research is presented in concise and clear prose akin to a prosecutor’s opening statement. He hits hard at the president for failed promises and cites his avarice as a key fault. It is a timely read, whether you support the president or not. Investigative journalism at its toughest.
