Everything Trump Touches Dies
A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President EverBook - 2018
30-year Republican political campaign strategist, ad maker, columnist, and commentator Rick Wilson confronts the absurdity of American politics in the age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly takes down Trump and exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party Wilson served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst President in American history. Wilson is no left-winger. He's a lifelong conservative who delivers his critique of Trump from the right. A founder of the Never Trump movement, he takes on his own party to warn them of the political catastrophe Trump has caused and concludes that everyone involved with Trump leaves with their reputation destroyed and their life in tatters. Wilson dismantles Trump's deceptions and the illusions to which his supporters cling. He sheds light on the causes of the Trump phenomenon and identifies the guilty parties who empower and enable Trump in Washington and the news media. He calls out the social conservatives who looked the other way, the race-war dead-enders who hitched a ride with Trump, and the alt-right basement dwellers who worship him. But he also offers an optimistic path forward for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country.
