Scholars and pundits alike have spent more than a little time speculating about why Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump in 2016. Their conclusions may differ, but few would disagree that Clinton's nomination by a major party changed the political landscape in significant ways-nor that the results of the 2016 election provoked a large number of women to run for office at all levels of government. The genie is out of the bottle.In this context, the authors of Madam President? critically analyze the barriers facing women on the road to the White House-from gender stereotyping to biased media coverage, the conflation of masculinity and the presidency, gendered conceptions of leadership, and more.

The Conspirators is a non-fiction account of four tumultuous years (2016-2020) in American history. It exposes corruption at the upper echelons of the government, media's complicit role in the 2016 elections, and scandals dating back to the early years of the Obama presidency. For the past decade, our nation has been at war with itself. We have become distrustful of the government and corporations due to lax immigration laws, chronic job losses, and widening income inequality. Entrenched in our daily struggles, we did not realize how our politicians have been selling out the country to the highest foreign bidder and lining their own pockets in the process. The first half of The Conspirators takes us down the road of the 2016 presidential election. It was not just a race for the White House, but also one that would tilt the balance of power between the two political parties in the Supreme Court. Both key presidential contenders were known to be polarizing figures. Yet, while the media supported former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, they scorned Donald Trump, a novice at politics who hoped to use his business acumen to reduce foreign influence on our country. While foreign powers interfered in the 2016 election and challenged our position in the world, enemies within have torn the country apart, under the guise of fighting for social change. These enemies have been embedded within special interest groups fighting for women and minority rights, immigration, environment, and globalism. Anarchists working with them have tried to erase our borders, overthrow our government, rewrite our history and The Constitution. Politicians have added fuel to the fire by promoting race and gender identity politics while turning a blind eye to the growing civil unrest. Contrary to what most media outlets reported, the "Forgotten American Worker" section of the book best explains why Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States. The second half of The Conspirators details how Trump's rocky road to the White House was littered with conspirators, spies, and traitors. They spied on his campaign team, and commissioned a former British spy to compile a salacious anti-Trump Russian dossier as an insurance policy, so Trump would not be president, even if he were elected. It also recounts how they framed him for colluding with the Russians to win the election. His first term in office was plagued by a stream of FBI and House investigations and coup attempts. Almost three years later, the plot turns on its head, and the conspirators are exposed. The Russian collusion falls apart, and the fabricated anti-Trump dossier turns out to be a hoax. The investigation reveals a Deep State cancer of corruption, involving the top brass at the FBI and the intelligence community, the Justice Department, the State Department, and the Obama administration officials. While it is they who now come under the investigative lens, it does not stop them from plotting yet another scheme, which exposes their 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden. Enraged by the turn of events, House Democrats impeach President Trump, hoping to remove him from office after the Senate trial... and fail. The Conspirators demonstrates that despite the overwhelming obstacles placed by the opposition party and government officials to prevent his success, Donald Trump has been one step ahead of his enemies and prevailed. The book includes a balance of sources from various media outlets and official documents, as well as colorful dialogue from testimonies and interviews. The author conducted years of extensive non-partisan research and used a logical perspective to string together political and social events spanning from 2016-2020. She believes people must have access to all the facts so they can feel confident in their decisions.

An essential part of a journalist's responsibility is to listen, observe, ask good questions, and then listen some more. For too long, too few journalists have taken this responsibility seriously. This has been particularly true in the Trump era. Most political journalists failed to anticipate Donald Trump's rise because they are utterly unable to understand his appeal. From the start, they treated Trumpism as a pathology. They dismissed his voters as being guided by bigotry, ignorance, and fear. Needless to say, this has skewed their coverage. Worst of all, no one seems to have learned anything. The media malpractice that characterized the 2016 presidential campaign has arguably become even worse during the Trump presidency. Most of the media have remained unwilling or unable to understand and objectively report on the people and places that put Trump in the White House. When reporters do venture into "Trump's America," they typically parachute in for only a few hours in search of evidence to confirm their pre-written narratives. Daniel Allott decided to take a different approach. In the spring of 2017, he left his position at a Washington, D.C. political magazine and began reporting from across the country. He spent much of the following three years living in and reporting from nine counties that were crucial to understanding the 2016 election; they will be equally crucial to determining who will win in 2020. This book is not just a study of Trump voters. Allott spoke with as many people as he could regardless of their politics; farmers and professors; congressmen and homeless people; refugees and drug addicts; students and retirees; progressives, conservatives, and people with no discernible or consistent political ideology. His one preference was for "switchers" -- people who voted one way in 2016 and have subsequently changed their minds ahead of the 2020 election. Allot discovered that these voters are like an endangered species in Trump's America. Allott's goal wasn't simply to learn why people had voted the way they did in 2016, or to predict how they might vote in 2020. It was also to chart how their lives and circumstances changed over the course of Trump's first term in office, and how the values and priorities that inform their political views might have changed. The accounts will challenge preconceived ideas about who the people in these places are, what motivates their decisions, and what animates their lives.

In this New York Times bestseller, the White House chief usher for nearly three decades offers a behind-the-scenes look at America’s first families. J. B. West, chief usher of the White House, directed the operations and maintenance of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—and coordinated its daily life—at the request of the president and his family. He directed state functions; planned parties, weddings and funerals, gardens and playgrounds, and extensive renovations; and, with a large staff, supervised every activity in the presidential home. For twenty-eight years, first as assistant to the chief usher, then as chief usher, he witnessed national crises and triumphs, and interacted daily with six consecutive presidents and first ladies, as well as their parents, children and grandchildren, and houseguests—including friends, relatives, and heads of state. J. B. West, whom Jackie Kennedy called “one of the most extraordinary men I have ever met,” provides an absorbing, one-of-a-kind history of life among the first ladies. Alive with anecdotes ranging from Eleanor Roosevelt’s fascinating political strategies to Jackie Kennedy’s tragic loss and the personal struggles of Pat Nixon, Upstairs at the White House is a rich account of a slice of American history that usually remains behind closed doors.

The End of the Rhetorical Presidency? Public Leadership in the Trump Era explores one of the most disruptive aspects of the Trump presidency. Since the FDR administration, presidents developed the capacity and skill to use the public to influence the legislative arena, gain reelection, survive scandal and secure their legacy. Consequently, presidential rhetorical leadership has its own norms and expectations. Comparing President Trump’s communications apparatus as well as rhetoric (including Twitter) to previous presidents, Diane Heith demonstrates how Trump exercises leadership by adhering to some of these norms and expectations, but rejects, abandons and undermines most. Heith argues that his individual, rather than institutional, approach to leadership represents a change in tone, language and style. She concludes that the loss of skill and capacity represents a devolution of the White House institution dedicated to public leadership, especially in the legislative arena. More significantly, the individual approach emphasizes weakening the ability of the press and other political elites to hold the president accountable. This book will appeal to students and scholars of the presidency as well as general readers who quest for a deeper understanding of the Trump White House.

Jack has the world on a string, but is that string a thread waiting to break or is it a noose of piano wire strung round his neck? Like the road to Hell, the road to the White House is paved with good intentions as well as great expectations.

The New York Times and Washington Post bestseller that sparked a national conversation about America’s new progressive, multiracial majority, updated to include data from the 2016 election With a new preface and afterword by the author When it first appeared in the lead-up to the 2016 election, Brown Is the New White helped spark a national discussion of race and electoral politics and the often-misdirected spending priorities of the Democratic party. This “slim yet jam-packed call to action” (Booklist) contained a “detailed, data-driven illustration of the rapidly increasing number of racial minorities in America” (NBC News) and their significance in shaping our political future. Completely revised and updated to address the aftermath of the 2016 election, this first paperback edition of Brown Is the New White doubles down on its original insights. Attacking the “myth of the white swing voter” head-on, Steve Phillips, named one of “America’s Top 50 Influencers” by Campaigns & Elections, closely examines 2016 election results against a long backdrop of shifts in the electoral map over the past generation—arguing that, now more than ever, hope for a more progressive political future lies not with increased advertising to middle-of-the-road white voters, but with cultivating America’s growing, diverse majority. Emerging as a respected and clear-headed commentator on American politics at a time of pessimism and confusion among Democrats, Phillips offers a stirring answer to anyone who thinks the immediate future holds nothing but Trump and Republican majorities.
