"From Roger Stone, a New York Times bestselling author, longtime political adviser and friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes the first in-depth examination of how Trump's campaign tapped into the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that almost no one saw coming. In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, given little credence to his chances. Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invective and dismissal of the mainstream media. Here is the first definitive explanation about how the 'silent majority' shifted the election to Donald Trump in reliable Democratic Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, thus handing him the presidency. Stone, a long-time Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Donald Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among 'Forgotten Americans' While running a guerrilla-style grassroots campaign to compete with the smooth-running and free-spending Clinton political machine. The Making of the President 2016 reveals how Trump brilliantly picked at Hillary Clinton's weaknesses, particularly her reputation as a crooked insider, and ignited the passions of out-of-work white men and women from the Rust Belt and beyond, at a time when millions of Americans desperately wanted change. Stone also reveals how and why the mainstream media got it wrong, including how the polls were loaded and who would vote. Stone's analysis is akin to Theodore H. White's seminal book The Making of the President 1960. It is both a sweeping analysis of the trends that elected Trump as well as the war stories of a hard-bitten political survivor who Donald Trump called 'one tough cookie.'"--Dust jacket.
"In the tradition of Theodore White's landmark books, the definitive look at how Donald J. Trump shocked the world to become president,"

[Update 1/23/2017: NY Times Review of Books or Book Review, this week has a most interesting article thoroughly trashing/debunking the CIA/Trump report. Well worth a read! And I never thought I'd be recommending that publication!? ]
[Real Fascism: Voting AGAINST the lowering of the costs of medicines, as Sen. Cantwell and Sen. Murray (WA-"D") just did, and supporting the offshoring of American jobs, as those two so-called dems do, and founding the India Caucus in congress to replace American workers with foreign visa workers from India, as our former congressman-for-life, faux progressive, Jim McDermott did!]
Although I have never voted for a republicon in my life [and gave up on those phony crats many years ago], after hearing President Trump's little talk to the CIA, in his second day in the presidency, I am feeling quite remorseful that I didn't vote for him!
Anyone who threatens the CIA just into his presidency is a unique individual! Looks like the time for major RIFs in the CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI, et cetera!
Let the good times roll . . . .
[But I am glad there are no little Mezvinsky children running around on the White House grounds - - already plenty of criminals to go around.]
