Summary

Mr. Trump's Wild Ride: The Thrills, Chills, Screams, and Occasional Blackouts of an Extraordinary Presidency by Major Garrett | Conversation Starters

Donald Trump's worldview is shaped by TV and his judgment and reactions are reinforced by it. TV is Trump and Trump is TV. In the issues involving tax cuts, judicial appointments, immigration restrictions, and foreign policy, the president has created chaos. He ignores memos and fails to inform his advisers his decisions before twitting them. He uses his size and bearing to intimidate. The presidency has become “primal.” This meant policy analysis is not encouraged, making it impossible for his advisers to work with him. Publishers Weekly says Major Garrett does “the difficult task of being both hard-hitting and even-handed.” It is one of the best accounts yet of Trump’s impact.
Mr. Trump’s Wild Ride is written by Garrett who is the chief correspondent of CBS News since 2012. He has covered the White House for three different news outlets for almost two decades now, reporting on four presidencies.
