“A fascinating investigation into the ideological bricks with which Steve Bannon has built his ethnonationalist house – and how Donald Trump moved in without a second thought.”
Featured in NPR’s Book Concierge Great Reads of 2017.
From the reporter who covered the Trump presidential campaign from the very beginning, Joshua Green comes the #1 New York Times best-selling book called Devil’s Bargain. The nonfiction novel gives amazing insight into the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump, the fall of Hillary Clinton and the secret agendas that drove the greatest upset in American political history.
Talk of Bannon is inevitable once there is scrutiny at the rise of Trump presidency. Trump revealed that Bannon would head his presidential campaign in August 2016 and the revelation hit Washington with resounding shockwaves. For many, this signaled the meltdown of the Republican Party as Bannon was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike.
Yet it was this man’s hard-edge ethno-nationalism and his deliberate, long-winded plot to destroy Hillary Clinton which paved the way for Trump’s unlikely victory.
Devil’s Bargain is the tell-all of the remarkable convergence of conditions that swayed a nation to lead to election of Donald Trump as president. The pages of this book give tremendous understanding of Trump’s Triumph and Clinton’s fall, especially if it does not make any sense at all to you currently.
