Summary
  • An ex-US campaign advisor who has sat with the world's dictators explains Donald Trump's increasingly authoritarian tactics and the threat they pose to American democracy.--Amazon.com
  • Attacking the press. Threatening to fire those who investigate his alleged wrongdoings. Staffing the White House through nepotism. Trump's authoritarian tactics threaten to erode American democracy, and his campaign to blur the line between fact and falsehood are nothing new to the world of despots. He has shown bizarre adoration and idolization of despotic strongmen and has transformed American foreign policy into a powerful cheerleader for some of the world's worst regimes. Klaas hows how Trump uniquely threatens American democracy ... and how to save it from him
