A very stable genius : Donald J. Trump's testing of America

Image of item
Book
"This peerless and gripping narrative reveals President Trump at his most unvarnished and exposes how decision making in his administration has been driven by a reflexive logic of self-preservation and self-aggrandizement - but a logic nonetheless. This is the story of how an unparalleled president has scrambled to survive and tested the strength of America's democracy and its common heart as a nation."--Amazon
When he accepted the Republican presidential nomination in Cleveland, Trump promised to restore what he described as a fallen nation. Yet over the subsequent years it has been hard to see beyond the daily chaos of scandal, investigation, and constant bluster. His first term appears to be pure and uninhibited chaos-- but there are patterns to his behavior and that of his associates. The universal value of the Trump administration is loyalty: not to the country, but to the president himself. Leonnig and Rucker take readers inside Robert Mueller's Russia investigation as well as the president's own haphazard but ultimately successful legal defense. -- adapted from jacket
