Authoritative, timely and provocative, this deeply researched biography of Donald Trump offers a complex portrait of the man who, despite his widespread scepticism, could be the next president of the United States.
Who's Donald J. Trump?
Despite decades of scrutiny, many aspects of his life are not well known.
To discover Trump in his entirety, The Washington Post assembled a team of award-winning reporters and investigators to delve into every aspect of Trumps' improbable life, from his privileged education in Queens to his amazing rise to the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
Co-authored by Washington Post political research reporter Michael Kranish and senior editor Marc Fisher, this comprehensive book documents Trumps' fascinating family roots, his aggressive efforts to make a name for himself in New York's social circles and his fondness for large real estate companies, branded businesses and, ultimately, himself.
The authors, experienced journalists who interviewed Trump for this book, scrutinize everything from his youth alliance with powerful agent Roy Cohn to his alleged links to organized crime and his controversial projects in New York, Atlantic City, Florida, Scotland and Azerbaijan.
The authors examine Trumps' wealth, the evolution of his political beliefs, and his unique identity as a billionaire entrepreneur, celebrity, global brand, television star, and now a candidate for the world's most powerful position.
Few individuals have wandered so widely across realms as diverse as real estate, sports, entertainment and national politics.
How has Trumps' life informed his bold statements about the economy, immigration, race, world trade, terrorism and women?
Taken from the in-depth reports in the Washington Post, Trump Revealed is an essential read as the U.S. presidential election of 2016 approaches.
