WITH WIT AND PIERCING INSIGHT, JOY-ANN REID CALCULATES THE TRUE PRICE OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY
Is Donald Trump running the "longest con" in U.S. history? What will be left of America when he leaves office?
Candidate Trump sold Americans a vision that was seemingly at odds with their country's founding principles. Now in office, he's put up a for sale sign--on the prestige of the presidency, on America's global stature, and on our national identity. At what cost have these deals come? Joy-Ann Reid's The Man Who Sold America delivers an urgent accounting of our national crisis from one of our foremost political commentators.
Three years ago, Donald Trump pitched millions of voters on the idea that their country was broken, and that the rest of the world was playing us "for suckers." All we needed to fix this was Donald Trump, who rebranded prejudice as patriotism, presented diversity as our weakness, and promised that money really could make the world go 'round.
