In the summer of 2015, as he vaulted to the lead among the many GOP candidates for president, Donald Trump was the only one dogged by questions about his true intentions. This most famous American businessman had played the role of provocateur so often that pundits, reporters, and voters struggled to believe that he was a serious contender. Trump stirred so much controversy that his candidacy puzzled anyone who applied ordinary political logic to the race. But as Michael D'Antonio shows in The Truth About Trump, Trump has rarely been ordinary in his pursuit of success, and his trademark method is based on a logic that begins with his firm belief that he is a singular and superior human being. Drawing upon extensive and exclusive interviews with Trump and many of his family members, including all his adult children, D'Antonio presents the full story of a truly American icon, from his beginnings as a businessman to his stormy romantic life and his pursuit of power in its many forms. For all those who wonder: Just who is Donald Trump?, The Truth About Trump supplies the answer. He is a promoter, builder, performer, and politician who pursues success with a drive that borders on obsession and yet, has given him almost everything he ever wanted.

"The Washington Post" A carefully reported and fair-minded account.
