Contrary to his campaign slogan, Trump did not make America great again—he brought peril on America’s greatness because of his dictatorial ambitions and the manner by which he has been pursuing those aims since he came to power. The book reveals how Trump’s governance is starkly different from any of his predecessors, due to his incessant lies, misleading statements, and corruption. Ben-Meir surveys Trump’s colossal failure in foreign and domestic policies, and the great danger he poses to America’s democracy. Highlighted is his aggressive style and deep disdain for Democrats, which has polarized the country and brought it to the precipice of violent confrontation between his supporters and detractors, which should concern every American.
