Legendary political operative Roger Stone breaks down the 2016 election cycle and how Trump started a revolution.
By Jacob Engels
In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, been given little credence to his chances.
According to a new book by a decades long confidante, Trump pulled off the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of inventiveness and the dismissal by the mainstream media.
In The Making of the President 2016, Roger Stone, a longtime Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among “forgotten Americans,” despite running a guerrilla-style grassroots campaign to compete with the smooth-operating and free-spending Clinton political machine.
Roger Stone’s new book, The Making of the President 2016.
Mr. Stone worked decades to convince Donald Trump to run for president and was an early top advisor to the Manhattan billionaire businessman’s upstart campaign for the GOP nomination.
From the start, Trump’s campaign was unlike any seen on the national stage—combative, maverick, and fearless.
Trump’s nomination was the hostile takeover of the Republican party and a resounding repudiation of the failed leadership of both parties, whose policies have brought America to the brink of financial collapse and endangered our national security.
Stone outlines how Trump skillfully ran as the anti-open borders candidate as well as a supporter of American sovereignty, and how he used the globalist trade deals like NAFTA to win more than three of ten Bernie Sanders supporters.
The veteran adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Trump charts the rise of the alt-conservative media and the end of the mainstream media’s monopoly on voters.
This is an insider’s view that includes an examination of opposition research into Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton’s crimes; the struggle by the Republican establishment to stop Trump; and how Republicans underestimated him.
Stone also chronicles Trump’s triumph in three debates where he skillfully lowered expectation levels but skewered Mrs. Clinton for the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, her mishandling of government email, and her incompetence as Secretary of State.
In The Making of the President 2016, the inside word on Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, “Carlos Danger,” Doug Band, Jeffrey Epstein, and the efforts to hide the former first lady’s infirmities and health problems are examined.
Stone promises to dissect the phony narrative that Trump was in cahoots with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin or that the emails released by WikiLeaks came from the Russians.
The Making of the President 2016 reveals how 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.
Stone also enumerates how and why the mainstream media got it so wrong, including how the polls were loaded and completely misunderstood who would vote.
This analysis is akin to Theodore H. White’s seminal book The Making of the President 1960.
It is both a sweeping study of the trends that elected Trump as well as the war stories of a hard-bitten political survivor who Trump once called “one tough cookie.”
