Description on Amazon:
Authoritative, timely and provocative; this deeply researched biography of Donald Trump provides a complex portrait of the man who — despite broad scepticism — will soon be the president of the United States.
Who is Donald J. Trump?
Despite decades of scrutiny, many aspects of his life are not well known.
To discover Trump in full, The Washington Post assembled a team of award-winning reporters and researchers to delve into every aspect of Trump’s improbable life, from his privileged upbringing in Queens to his astonishing 2016 rise to seize the Republican candidacy for president.
Co-authored by Washington Post investigative political reporter Michael Kranish and senior editor Marc Fisher, this comprehensive book documents Trump’s fascinating family roots, his aggressive efforts to make a name for himself in New York social circles and his penchant for big bets — on real estate, branded businesses, and, ultimately, on himself.
The authors, seasoned journalists who interviewed Trump for this book, scrutinise everything from his youthful alliance with the power broker Roy Cohn to his alleged dealings with organised crime and his controversial projects in New York City, Atlantic City, Florida, Scotland and Azerbaijan.
The authors examine Trump’s wealth, the evolution of his political beliefs and his peculiar identity as a billionaire businessman, celebrity, global brand, television star and now his occupation of the most powerful office in the world.
Few individuals have ever roamed so widely through such diverse realms as real estate, sports, entertainment and national politics.
How has Trump’s life informed his bold statements on the economy, immigration, race, global trade, terrorism and women?
Drawn from in-depth reporting by The Washington Post, “Trump Revealed” is essential reading, especially considering the outcome of the 2016 American presidential election.
