Description

Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller Fire and Fury, once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.

Just one year into Donald Trump’s term as president, Michael Wolff told the electrifying story of a White House consumed by controversy, chaos, and intense rivalries. Fire and Fury, an instant sensation, defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, Wolff has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.

At the outset of Trump’s second year as president, his situation is profoundly different. No longer tempered by experienced advisers, he is more impulsive and volatile than ever. But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning: Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his business affairs. Many in the political establishment—even some members of his own administration—have turned on him and are dedicated to bringing him down. The Democrats see victory at the polls, and perhaps impeachment, in front of them. Trump, meanwhile, is certain he is invincible, making him all the more exposed and vulnerable. Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent: Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode?

Both a riveting narrative and a brilliant front-lines report, Siege provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno—and the most divisive leader in American history.

    Appears very insightful, aligns with my views, and makes Bannon look a lot better. At least he appears to have a cause (“movement “). I suspect he is the deep throat for this book.

    How can Trump fans give this book one-star without reading it? If you read it, you’d be thrilled at the author’s portrayal of Mueller — indecisive and scared of Trump. Jared and Ivanka come off as serious candidates for the presidency. Imagine 8 years of Ivanka and 8 years of Jared — it’s gonna be a quarter century of Trumpism! And even the author has to admit Trump’s charm — even Nikki Haley was unable to keep her hot hands off Trump’s raging “Papa Smurf” (according to Trump anyway). If you bothered to read the book, you real about NOBODY is smarter than our diabolically clever president, and how everyone around him is awed into silence. If anything, the book will make you cheer for Trump like you cheer for Forrest Gump! Run, Donald, run!

    It would categorize this book under the fiction section because it’s completely fabricated.

    Another “God Awful” read by a “God Awful” author who makes outlandish claims throughout. Filled with the standard lies and deceit you hear everyday from the drive bye media, as Rush Limbaugh so eloquently puts it.
