Here is a new wave of devastating Trump books written by journalists
The secrets and failures of Donald Trump’s presidency are poised to give new impetus to the publishing industry.
Earlier Trump-themed (and pre-coronavirus) headlines written by reporters ranged from Bob Woodward’s Fear at by Katy Tur Unbelievable and Sink in the swamp, a pair of Daily beast journalists – all unusual and revealing dispatches that followed an administration that broke standards, from the election campaign to the top of power. The latter, written by journalists Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng, is a particularly remarkable and entertaining read, in this sense The daily beast the scribes at least did not claim to treat their subject with the learned distance that different writers might bring to another occupant of the White House. Their book, in fact, opens with details of a near-brawl inside the Trump Hotel in Washington DC involving one of the writers. The blows were almost traded, and the couple also bemoan, in the opening pages, how much they went to give their book a much different and delightfully entertaining title (a title which, nonetheless, has too many swear words to repeat here).
Trump’s aides, meanwhile, have also lined up to get a share of the release action, with aides like Sims Cliff, Sean spicer, and John bolton and many others fish to tell their side of their stories. And now a new batch of Trump books written by journalists who have covered the past four years are about to hit the market, this time unboxing the events of 2020 and in particular the presidential election as well as the Covid-19 pandemic.
The range includes:
Coming this Tuesday June 29 – Nightmare scenario, through Washington post journalists Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damien paletta, will take readers into the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic, revealing how mistakes as well as efforts to muzzle health agencies have made the health crisis that has killed more than 600,000 Americans worse than it could have been. could be.
Already, this one promises to be particularly devastating for the Trump administration as well as the former president himself, revealing information such as a flippant comment from Trump in which he seemed to be joking that Covid, hopefully, Would ‘eliminate’ Bolton, as well as Trump wanting someone to examine the possibility of sending Americans infected with Covid to Guantanamo Bay (both of these details having been reported by The Guardian before publication of the book).
July, meanwhile, will be inundated with books about Trump written by journalists.
July 13, The Wall Street Journal’s Michael bender will publish Frankly We Won This Election: The Inside Story Of Trump’s Loss – whose publication date has been accelerated probably because of all the books with a similar theme on newsstands that same month. As Bender’s title suggests, the 2020 election will be at the center of it, and the astonishing revelations from Bender’s reports that have already emerged include Trump wanting the military to “beat the whoreOn Americans protesting for racial justice last summer, and on “breaking their heads.”
A week later will see the July 20 release of Only I can fix it: the catastrophic last year of Donald J. Trump, of Washington post journalists Carol Leonnig and Philippe rucker. The two forthcoming Pulitzer Prize-winning authors of this title have also written a separate best-selling book on Trump together, A very stable genius. What’s particularly enticing about their new title is that the couple got to interview Trump at his property in Mar-a-Lago, which helps the book, according to publisher Penguin Press, present “an account. forensic rendering of the most devastating year of an unparalleled presidency. other.”
Their title, by the way, should have a sound of familiarity – it’s taken from Trump’s 2016 speech. Republican National Convention, when he boasted: “I joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up people who cannot defend themselves. No one knows the system better than I do, which is why I am the only one who can fix it.
A week after this a, meanwhile, Michel wolff is back with a third in his series of gossip books on the Trump presidency, featuring Landslide: The Last Days of the Trump Presidency is expected to be released on July 27. Trump, let’s remember, was so exasperated by Wolff’s first book in this series (the 2018 bestseller Fire and fury) that he tried to stop the publication of the book. Wolff followed this one up with the one from 2019 Headquarters: Trump under fire –And, even though Trump tweeted that Wolff’s first book was “full of lies, misrepresentation, and sources that don’t exist,” the president himself spoke to Wolff about book # 3.
Also worth mentioning here ABC News Washington correspondent that of Jonathan Karl To come up Treason, which will be released on November 16. This one is indicative of the final weeks of Trump’s presidency and has already made headlines for revealing that Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr told Karl he always knew the claims of the former president fraud in the 2020 election would be worthless (“It was all bulls * t”, according to an excerpt from Karl’s book published in Atlantic). “Barr told me,” according to this excerpt from Karl’s report, “that he had already concluded that it was highly unlikely that there was any evidence that would tip the scales in the election. He expected Trump to lose and therefore was not surprised by the outcome.
The former president, of course, continues to push, alternately, a false narrative that he only lost in 2020 due to voter fraud as well as a fiction he somehow earned. Hinting at the 2024 race during a rally this weekend, Trump reflected on the crowd: “We may have to win (the White House) a third time.”
