Are you a political junkie looking for some summer reading? A new book about former president Donald Trump hit the shelves on Tuesday, July 13.
The book, ‘Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost,’ is written by Michael C. Bender, senior White House reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
CNN reports that one excerpt in the book goes into detail about how Trump told his advisers that whoever leaked information about the time he, his wife and their son, Barron, were whisked away to the White House bunker in 2020, “had committed treason and should be executed,” according to CNN. The first family was reportedly in the bunker during protests outside the White House following the killing of George Floyd.
Amazon reviewers have offered mixed takes on the new book. One reviewer says “A disappointing fairy tale – based on numerous unsubstantiated lies,” while another says “On every page there’s a stunning revelation of how dangerous the Trump White House became and how chaotic his reelection effort was run.”
For more information on the book, check out Amazon’s excerpt below.
“Beginning with President Trump’s first impeachment and ending with his second, ‘Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost’ chronicles the inside-the-room deliberations between Trump and his campaign team as they opened 2020 with a sleek political operation built to harness a surge of momentum from a bullish economy, a unified Republican Party, and a string of domestic and foreign policy successes—only to watch everything unravel when fortunes suddenly turned.”
With first-rate sourcing cultivated from five years of covering Trump in the White House and both of his campaigns, Bender brings readers inside the Oval Office, aboard Air Force One, and into the front row of the movement’s signature mega-rallies for the story of an epic election-year convergence of COVID, economic collapse, and civil rights upheaval—and an unorthodox president’s attempt to battle it all.”
