Understanding Trump requires a willingness to study and learn from him. His principles grow out of five decades of business and celebrity success. Trump behaves differently than traditional politicians because his entire life experience has been different than most traditional politicians. This book will explain the Trump phenomenon and help people understand the emerging movement and administration. Newt Gingrich says President Trump should begin every day by reviewing his campaign promises. Trump owes his presidency to the people who believed in him, not to the courtiers and schmoozers who had contempt for him as candidate but adore him now that he is president.

I wonder how all those farmers that voted for Dumpy feel about his "flaunting his wealth" now? Funny - Dumpy flaunts his wealth to be patriotic but wants farmers to go into debt to be patriotic. The lack of logical thought from Dumpy's supporters is astounding. It's like they do not have the capability for actual facts and rational thoughts.

Newt Gingrich has worked with a lot of presidents and knows of what he speaks. President Trump is different from all of those before him and the movement that put him in office represents a phenomenon that is worth studying. His principles grow out of five decades of business and celebrity success--not politics--so he behaves differently than do traditional politicians. He understands money and balance sheets and getting value for value received. Including expecting employees to work a full day and for him and not against him. The very essence of Trump's mission is a willingness to enact policies and set goals that send our country in a bold new direction - one that may be 'unreasonable' to Washington but is sensible to millions of Americans outside the Beltway. Only with the country's help will President Trump be able to overcome the entrenched interests in Washington and fulfill his promise to make America great again for all Americans.

Behold the worst president in the history of our country. It's no mystery why he casts such a profound spell over the poorly-educated, the barely employed, the financially desperate, and congenitally gullible.

Donald Trump does not write his own books.

This is an article about the man who wrote Trump's first book for him:

“On Fox & Friends, Newt Gingrich advises Trump to keep fearmongering about torture, rape, and murder in his push for a border wall”

Newt does understand President Trump. I enjoyed reading this book. Now I am starting to read Newt’s Trump’s America.

Was 6th in line on the "holds list" but my turn to read came very quickly. Once I started this well-written, very interesting book, found it very difficult to close it to get other things done. Newt Gingrich's writing style, even though he correctly writes in "third person", keeps the reader involved in the content because it's like he's speaking to his "audience". Mr. Speaker's research is comprehensive, in depth and very well sourced. Am very grateful for reading this insightful work because it enhances my understanding why OUR excellent 45th President of the United States made many of the decisions to help Americans by growing the economy, remarkably removing the excessive, overburdening regulations placed by the immediate past presidential administration. If you give yourself "permission" to read this book, cover-to-cover, with an open mind and open heart, it might help you better appreciate how lucky we are to have Donald J. Trump, Sr. as our President of the United States. I finished reading the book in just two days. Highly recommend this book.

I don't think I want to understand Trump, ever.
