A Week-by-week Reckoning of Trump's First YearBook - 2018
"In the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump's election as president, Amy Siskind, a former Wall Street executive and co-founder of The New Agenda, began compiling a list of actions taken by the Trump regime that pose a threat to our democratic norms. Under the headline: 'Experts in authoritarianism advise to keep a list of things subtly changing around you, so you'll remember,' Siskind's Weekly List began as a project she shared with friends, but it soon went viral and now has more than half a million viewers every week. The List is the shocking first-draft history of the Trump regime and its clear authoritarian impulses. Beginning with Trump's acceptance of white supremacists the week after the election and concluding a year to the day later, we watch as Trump and his regime chip away at the rights and protections of marginalized communities, of women, of us all--via Twitter storms, unchecked executive action, and shifting rules and standards. The List chronicles not only the scandals that made headlines but, just as important, the myriad smaller but still consequential unprecedented acts that otherwise fall through cracks. It is this granular detail that makes The List such a powerful and important book. For everyone hoping to #resistTrump, The List is a must-have guide to what we as a country have lost and a road map back to normal"--Dust jacket.
