A FACE IN THE CROWD
About the Book
The book, written by an ordinary member of the public, argues that, in spite of concerted efforts to derail his presidency, Donald Trump, through his life experience, embodies many of the attributes of a great president. What is so remarkable is not that he was elected against all expectations but that his presidency has proved to be so successful. The media has portrayed Trump in the most negative terms possible to a degree that would have destroyed a lesser man. The book demonstrates that this picture is almost entirely false. Trump is president at a historic moment when the nation is polarized between radical progressives striving for fundamental change and conservatives who stand by traditional values. Trump is not an ideologue but a pragmatist resisting social experimentation with the potential to be one of the greatest presidents in the history of the republic.
