NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • With unparalleled reporting, a Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times reporter chronicles the clash between a president and the officials of his own government who tried to stop him. “A meticulously reported volume that clearly benefits from the author’s extraordinary access . . . [a] startling dissection of the Trump presidency.”—The New York Times Drawing on secret FBI and White House documents and confidential sources inside federal law enforcement and the West Wing, Donald Trump v. The United States tells the dramatic, high-stakes story of those who felt compelled to confront and try to contain the forty-fifth president of the United States as he shredded norms and sought to expand his power, bringing American democracy to the brink. Michael S. Schmidt broke many of the major stories of the Trump era, from the news of Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email account to the report on the memos of former FBI director James Comey’s conversations with Trump that led directly to the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. In Donald Trump v. The United States, Schmidt takes us inside the defining events of a presidency, chronicling the clash between an increasingly emboldened president and the officials of his own government who found themselves trying to thwart the president they had once pledged to serve. Through their eyes and ears, we observe an epic struggle to stop a rogue agent in our nation’s highest office. A vital work of journalism, Donald Trump v. The United States is a riveting contemporary history and a lasting account of just how fragile and vulnerable American democracy really is.

Or maybe you've already read the book, but need a refresh on the most important takeaways. In a quick, easy read, you can take the main principles from The United States of Trump: How the President Really Sees America!In The United States of Trump: How the President Really Sees America, former Fox News anchorman and commentator Bill O'Reilly reviews the stunning rise of Donald Trump from New York real estate developer and celebrity to his election as President of the United States. As the one-time anchor of the tabloid show Inside Edition, O'Reilly had interviewed Trump before his decision to run for President, and as a candidate Trump was a frequent guest on the author's news show The O'Reilly Factor. O'Reilly uses his familiarity with Trump to paint a picture of the President that is largely positive but not sentimental.In O'Reilly's telling, Trump is neither a monster nor an angel, neither fool nor genius. Instead, he portrays Trump as a well-intentioned but impulsive man with a relatively simple political outlook and a knack for self-promotion. The story O'Reilly tells will be familiar to anyone who follows politics, but he does provide some insights into how Trump became such a political force.

Looking beyond the headlines to address the enduring grand strategic questions facing the United States today American foreign policy is in a state of upheaval. The rise of Donald Trump and his "America First" platform have created more uncertainty about America's role in the world than at any time in recent decades. From the South China Sea, to the Middle East, to the Baltics and Eastern Europe, the geopolitical challenges to U.S. power and influence seem increasingly severe—and America's responses to those challenges seem increasingly unsure. Questions that once had widely accepted answers are now up for debate. What role should the United States play in the world? Can, and should, America continue to pursue an engaged an assertive strategy in global affairs? In this book, a leading scholar of grand strategy helps to make sense of the headlines and the upheaval by providing sharp yet nuanced assessments of the most critical issues in American grand strategy today. Hal Brands asks, and answers, such questions as: Has America really blundered aimlessly in the world since the end of the Cold War, or has its grand strategy actually been mostly sensible and effective? Is America in terminal decline, or can it maintain its edge in a harsher and more competitive environment? Did the Obama administration pursue a policy of disastrous retrenchment, or did it execute a shrewd grand strategy focused on maximizing U.S. power for the long term? Does Donald Trump's presidency mean that American internationalism is dead? What type of grand strategy might America pursue in the age of Trump and after? What would happen if the United States radically pulled back from the world, as many leading academics—and, at certain moments, the current president—have advocated? How much military power does America need in the current international environment? Grappling with these kinds of issues is essential to understanding the state of America's foreign relations today and what path the country might take in the years ahead. At a time when American grand strategy often seems consumed by crisis, this collection of essays provides an invaluable guide to thinking about both the recent past and the future of America's role in the world.

Never before has America's presidential race so captivated the world's attention. Across the globe, media coverage of Donald Trump, his antics, his opinions-and his victories-are making headlines. But how did he get this far? Why does he continue to win support? More importantly, could he actually win? What would the fate of America be with "The Donald" at the helm? In The United States of Trump, author Bernhard Klee draws on his political insights and combines them with his business and marketing expertise to examine this ongoing phenomenon. Explaining the what and the why, Klee shows how it all makes perfect sense, demonstrating the effectiveness of Trump's marketing strategy and the ways it satisfies Americans' insatiable appetite for his kind of sensationalism. Is Trump's approach-running government like a business-exactly what the nation needs? Maybe. As scandalous as the media has portrayed it, his campaign may actually be the most genuine, reflecting what the American people want and need. Klee compares the opposition to Trump to that which followed Ronald Reagan in 1980. If naysayers were wrong before, might they be again?
