Description
From David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of the bestselling The Making of Donald Trump, comes his New York Times bestseller about how the Trump Administration's policies will affect our jobs, savings, taxes, and safety—completed revised and updated. New York Times bestselling author and longtime Trump observer David Cay Johnston shines a light on the political termites who have infested our government under the Trump administration, destroying it from within and compromising our jobs, safety, finances, and more. In It's Even Worse Than You Think, Johnston exposes shocking details about the Mexican border wall, and how American consumers will end up paying for it, if it ever gets built; climate change, and all about Scott Pruitt who spent much of his career trying to destroy the agency he now heads; stocking—not draining—the swamp, despite his promise to do the opposite, Trump has filled his cabinet with millionaires and billionaires; and the Kleptocracy, where Donald Jr. and Eric run an eyes-wide-open blind trust of Trump holdings to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest—but not the reality. With story after story, It's Even Worse Than You Think "diagnoses the Trump administration as a...government by the least qualified and most venal among us" (The Washington Post). This is "a momentously thorough account of President Trump's alarmingly chaotic first year in office...a precise and fiery indictment of an unstable, unethical president that concludes with a call for us to defend our democracy" (Booklist) and is "urgent, necessary reading" (Kirkus Reviews).

        January 1, 2018
        If there's such a genre as anti-hagiography, Johnston (The Making of Donald Trump, 2016, etc.) adds materially to it with this new polemic against the sitting president.If the Trump administration can boast of an accomplishment to date, writes the author, it is that "thanks to Trump the mentally ill now have virtually the same gun rights as the sane." One might think this a questionable contribution to the commonwealth, but, Johnston argues with a fine and steely sense of indignation, that is precisely the point. Where other presidents have had agendas in the national interest and reformist tendencies toward the same end, "the Trump presidency is about Trump. Period. Full stop." That includes various kleptocratic schemes, such as the evasion of the anti-emoluments clause mostly by simply ignoring it and being abetted by a Republican Congress all too willing to overlook constitutional niceties. Thus it is, Johnston chronicles, that the president continues to cash in on the Trump Hotel just down the street from the White House, with staffers hanging out in the lobby to record who comes and goes, to be rewarded accordingly. It also includes turning a blind eye to the dismantling of the administrative state by "termites" who operate behind closed doors, carefully shielded from public view as they destroy agencies and records. Johnston is very good at connecting odd dots: why, for instance, would Trump want to annihilate an agency devoted to increasing American trade exports abroad? Because part of the deal is to push renewable energy, and Trump "has attacked renewable energy again and again." Never mind collusion with Russia, election-fixing, vote suppression, and all the rest. The author writes without an ounce of self-congratulation that he's been warning about the dangers of Trump for years, and it's all coming true--including, he adds, his prediction that "as president, Trump's behavior would become increasingly erratic. And it has."Thoroughly depressing--but urgent, necessary reading, at least for those who aren't true believers in the Trumpite cause.
