The New York Times bestselling author of Trumpocracy poses the essential question facing America today: How do we recover from the most corrupt, incompetent, and cruel presidency in modern history?
Donald Trump rose to power by offering the wrong answers to the right questions.
While the economy continued its growth trajectory under his administration, drug overdoses skyrocketed, the migrant crisis at the Southern border drastically escalated, the US trade deficit widened, and the federal deficit exploded. Distrust festers between the cultures and races of modern America; young men and women live increasingly apart; the United States has isolated itself from former friends and allies. After Trump is gone, these troubles will remain—and await the next demagogue to exploit the troubles of the modern American nation.
One of our most astute commentators, David Frum has closely observed American politics for more than four decades from vantage points in media and government. In Trumpocalypse, he revisits the many mistakes, corruptions, and lost opportunities of the past three years—to offer hope for the better nation we can be. Eloquent and practical, Trumpocalypse condemns the wrongs done by Trump's rage and racism—and shows a way forward that liberals and conservatives can walk together.
