Really Want To Understand The 2016 Election? Read 'Trump The Establishment'
Earlier in the year, I came across Don Surber's marvelous 'Trump The Press,' an account of exactly how Donald Trump, a rookie candidate won the Republican nomination against all the odds.
Well, Surber, a retired journalist with forty years experience writing about American politics has done it again with a sequel, 'Trump The Establishment'. It continues the story to cover the election and tells us exactly how Donald Trump became president when the polls, the media and the political establishment all predicted his defeat and said he had no chance of winning.
For those of you who still can't understand how Donald Trump won in spite of breaking all the established rules of campaigning, with elements of the mainstream press actually colluding with the Clinton campaign and with even his own party's establishment against him, 'Trump The Establishment' will be a revelation.
Like his previous book, Surber's eye for detail and his recording of details and events that even many people who follow politics might have forgotten make this a vital and impressive read. What we have here is a lively, well written account of one of the most amazing upsets in American political history combined with its predecessor 'Trump The Press,' 'Trump The Establishment' is nothing less than a classic work on an election like no other.
