INCOMING TRUMP BOOK
The man with a Richard Nixon tattoo between his shoulders and four decades worth of insider political activity to his name has written a new book. That would be Roger Stone, a former adviser to Presidentelect Donald Trump, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and plenty more high-profile Republicans.
The title says all: “The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution.”
Among many things, Mr. Stone explains how the maverick candidate ran a guerrilla-style campaign and “pulled off the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invectiveness and the dismissal by the mainstream media.” He also parses strategy.
“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,” the author notes.
The book will be published Jan. 17, 2017 — three days before Mr. Trump is inaugurated.
