The Trump White House By Ronald Kessler
The Trump White House
Changing the Rules of the Game
Includes an Exclusive Interview with President Trump
By New York Times Best-selling Author Ronald Kessler
The Unvarnished and Unbiased Inside Story of President Donald Trump and His White House
Based on exclusive interviews with President Trump and his staff, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE: Changing the Rules of the Game, by Ronald Kessler, tells the real story of what Donald Trump is like, who influences him, how he makes decisions, what he says about the people around him, and how he operates when the television lights go off, while portraying the inside story of the successes that have already brought solid results as well as the stumbles that have turned off even longtime supporters and undercut his agenda.
THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is the book Trump's fans have been waiting for. The book is unique because it is the only overall favorable book on Trump and his presidency. At the same time, the book is an honest journalistic effort with negative items and inside tidbits that will keep both sides turning the pages.
THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE reveals:
Never before has an American president had so much impact on the country and the world in so short a time as Donald Trump. Yet no president has stirred so much controversy, dominating media coverage and conversation both pro and con. Yet for all the media coverage, Trump remains a cipher.
Months after Trump took office, consumer confidence hit a seventeen-year high, unemployment plummeted to the lowest level in seventeen years, and the stock market zoomed to repeated record highs.
At the same time, ISIS was nearly defeated, Arab countries banded together to stop financing terrorists and promoting radical Islamic ideology, and Trump’s decision to send missiles into Syria because of its use of chemical weapons and his strident warnings to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made it clear to adversaries that they take on the United States at their peril.
Ronald Kessler has known Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for two decades and understands him better than any other journalist. The book includes an exclusive interview with The President - the only interview he says he has given or will give for a book as president.
Complete with color photographs, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is filled with anecdotes that flesh out the human being that is Donald Trump: his generosity, his tirades, his contrition... as he displays the tough, rough exterior and hides his soft emotional side. Crammed with media-grabbing revelations, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is the inside story that answers the question: Who is Donald Trump?
