His­to­rian and colum­nist Vic­tor Davis Han­son is at work on “The Case for Trump,” ac­cord­ing to pub­lisher Ba­sic Books, an im­print of Perseus Books — part of the gi­ant Ha­chette Book Group. The book will surely rile Pres­i­dent Trump’s foes.

“Han­son will show how a celebrity busi­ness man with no po­lit­i­cal or mil­i­tary ex­pe­ri­ence tri­umphed over six­teen well-qual­i­fied ri­vals to be­come pres­i­dent — and an ex­tremely suc­cess­ful pres­i­dent at that. Han­son ar­gues that Trump alone saw a po­lit­i­cal op­por­tu­nity in de­fend­ing the work­ing peo­ple of Amer­ica’s in­te­rior whom the coastal elite of both par­ties had come to scorn. And Trump alone had the in­stincts and en­ergy to pur­sue this open­ing to vic­tory, dis­man­tle a cor­rupt old or­der, and bring long-over­due pol­icy changes at home and abroad,” the pub­lisher notes.

The book will pub­lished in five months — just in time for cam­paign sea­son.
