Devil's Bargain : Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency

If you are still wondering about how Donald Trump made his way to the White House, Joshua Green thinks the answer can be attributed to one man who made all the difference: Steve Bannon.  It seems that Bannon had been planning the take-down of Hillary Clinton for decades, so when he was invited to join the Trump campaign, a move which surprised everyone, he was more than ready. Green describes Bannon as the mastermind of a populist insurgency who “had found a vessel (Donald J. Trump) for his populist-nationalist ideas”.

I found this book to be deeply disturbing on several levels, but it certainly does explain what happened behind the scenes before and during Trump’s 2016 presidential bid and successful campaign, which has been described as “the greatest political upset in American history.” Joshua Green is a veteran news correspondent specializing in political coverage.  His book is drawn from travels with the campaign and extensive interview hours with the major players. Hopefully, this book will find a large readership.

Devil's bargain : Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the storming of the presidencyBy Green, Joshua, 1972- author.

"Any study of Trump’s rise to the presidency is unavoidably a study of Bannon. Devil’s Bargain is a tour-de-force telling of the remarkable confluence of circumstances that decided the election, many of them orchestrated by Bannon and his allies, who really did plot a vast, right-wing conspiracy to stop Clinton."
