"In one way or another, Donald Trump has been a topic of conversation in America for almost forty years. No one in the world of business-not Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or Warren Buffett-has been as famous as Trump for as long. First associated with high-profile real estate development in 1970s Manhattan, his name has since become synonymous with success defined by wealth and luxury. What does one make of a grown man who, when he argues with women, stoops to insulting their appearance and habitually courts controversy? What if the same man were among the most prominent people in the world, and a privately generous person who once handed a dying child a $50,000 check so that he could enjoy the last months of his life? Add to the picture a kind of resilience that has allowed him to stage countless comebacks and truly a boundless level of optimism, and you get a figure so compelling that he cannot be dismissed simply because of his personality"--Novelist.

I look forward to reading this book. I have always considered Trump to be nothing more than a sleazy business guy, but compared to the others in this presidential campaign he really begins to look like the lesser of evils, and he certainly sounds light years more pro-worker than the couple who killed the New Deal, increasing drug dealing in lower income neighborhoods, and jail record numbers of American, the Clintons!
[Just as that rightwing party in the UK led the exit from the EU, something which any real leftwinger should have been doing, Trump most strangely ends up sounding far more progressive than those claiming to be liberal and progressive? If Trump manages to win the presidency, I sincerely believe it will because it was a protest vote against rampant criminality and corruption so extant today on the American political scene and government.]
