The culmination of 30 years of reporting on Donald Trump, The Making of Donald Trump is the recent New York Times' bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston.
Now, in "What Donald Trump Is Doing to You," the author takes a uniquely close look at the mogul's rise to the presidency. He reveals the stunning facts and disclosures of what Trump has actually done with all of the ultimate power conferred upon him. We're shown an entirely new and complex breed of public figure- a man of astonishing media savvy, entrepreneurial spirit, sheer clout, and profoundly disturbing responses. His career has been persistently plagued by legal troubles and mounting controversies, from the origins of his family's fortune to his own too-big-to-fail business empire; from his education and early career through that whirlwind presidential bid. Love him or hate him, Trump's massive influence is undeniable.
Drawing on decades of interviews, financial records, court documents, and public statements, David Cay Johnston, who has covered Trump longer and more closely than any other journalist working today, gives us the most in-depth look yet at the man who has shocked the world over and over again with disquieting acts and impulsive tweets.
