NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- From Roger Stone, the New York Times bestselling author, longtime political adviser and friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes The Making of the President 2016 (Skyhorse Publishing hardcover, January 31, 2017, $29.99), the first in-depth examination of how Trump's campaign tapped into the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that almost no one saw coming.
In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had—only hours before—given little credence to his chances.
Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invectives and dismissals from the mainstream media. Here is the first definitive explanation of how the "Silent Majority" shifted the election to Donald Trump in the usually Democratic states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, thus handing him the presidency.
The Making of the President 2016 traces Trump's stunning victories in the Republican primaries as well has the historic no-holds-barred slug-fest with Hillary Clinton. Stone outlines how the main stream media monopoly on political information was ended, the rise of alternative media and how Trump's skillful use of social media allowed him to circumvent the "old media" to win a stunning victory.
The Making of the President 2016 reveals how Trump brilliantly picked at Hillary Clinton's weaknesses, particularly her reputation as a crooked insider, and ignited the passions of out-of-work white men and women from the rust belt and beyond, at a time when millions of Americans desperately wanted change. Stone also reveals how and why the mainstream media got it wrong, including how the polls were loaded, and completely misunderstood who would vote.
Stone's analysis is akin to Theodore H. White's seminal book The Making of the President 1960. It is both a sweeping analysis of the trends that elected Trump as well as the war stories of a hard-bitten political survivor who Donald Trump called "one tough cookie."
Roger Stone is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Man Who Killed Kennedy.
