Audio Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 'The most comprehensive and detailed account of the Trump presidency yet published.'—The Washington Post

'A sumptuous feast of astonishing tales...The more one reads, the more one wishes to read.'—NPR.com

The inside story of the four years when Donald Trump went to war with Washington, from the chaotic beginning to the violent finale, told by revered journalists Peter Baker of The New York Times and Susan Glasser of The New Yorker—an ambitious and lasting history of the full Trump presidency that also contains dozens of exclusive scoops and stories from behind the scenes in the White House, from the absurd to the deadly serious.

The bestselling authors of The Man Who Ran Washington argue that Trump was not just lurching from one controversy to another; he was learning to be more like the foreign autocrats he admired.

The Divider brings us into the Oval Office for countless scenes both tense and comical, revealing how close we got to nuclear war with North Korea, which cabinet members had a resignation pact, whether Trump asked Japan’s prime minister to nominate him for a Nobel Prize and much more. The book also explores the moral choices confronting those around Trump—how they justified working for a man they considered unfit for office, and where they drew their lines.

The Divider is based on unprecedented access to key players, from President Trump himself to cabinet officers, military generals, close advisers, Trump family members, congressional leaders, foreign officials and others, some of whom have never told their story until now.

  • Stephen R.

    This is12th book I have either read or heard on the presidency of "the Divider." It has the advantage of 12 months distance the from legal end of that tragedy for the USA. Glasser and Baker are trusted Washington figures and so have access to the detail in the large pile of various books and media generated out The Divider's presidency as well as commentary and loosened tongues in the aftermath. The account is horrible. The scale of the horrors of a leader who seems to live by one value - self promotion, is jarring. The account demonstrates the impenetrability of his commitment to that single value as it vividly explains how destructive the man was to both courageous and cowardly servants. The saddest thing about this book is that all this truly mesmerizing detail and research about a man who has no concept of service to the nation but occupied the Presidency of the USA for four years, will not change anything. There were times I was amazed that the narrator did not burst into tears of rage. As a foreign lover of all things in US politics I am thankful to the authors for their work
