Victor Davis Hanson Private Papers

THE CASE FOR TRUMP

THE CASE FOR TRUMP

By Victor Davis Hanson

With THE CASE FOR TRUMP, Hanson will show how a celebrity business man with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified rivals to become President of the United States—and an extremely successful president at that. Hanson argues that Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America’s interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad. THE CASE FOR TRUMP looks deeply into the political conditions that enabled Trump’s emergence as a candidate, the smart choices he made during his campaign, and his impressive record of success as president.

The book will be published as a hardcover and e-book by Basic Books on March 5, 2019.
