Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and The Breaking of America is a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael D’Antonio, which explores the life and career of President Donald Trump. In this book, D’Antonio reveals how Trump was shaped by his father and mentor, Fred Trump, and how his unique combination of ambition, talent, and ruthlessness has enabled him to become one of the most powerful figures in the world. The book also examines how Trump’s rise has had a profound effect on the United States and the world.
The Making of Donald Trump
Donald Trump’s rise to power began with his father, Fred Trump, who was a successful real estate developer. Fred was a hardworking, demanding, and often ruthless businessman who instilled in his son a sense of ambition and determination. Trump also learned the art of self-promotion from his father, and he developed a flair for showmanship that helped him stand out from the crowd. He also inherited his father’s penchant for deal-making, which he used to his advantage in the business world.
Trump also learned to take risks and to think outside the box. He was not afraid to fail, and he was willing to do whatever it took to succeed. His unyielding ambition and determination helped him to become a billionaire and a celebrity. He also used his celebrity status to launch his political career, and he eventually became the President of the United States.
The Breaking of America
While Donald Trump’s rise to power has been remarkable, it has also had a profound effect on the United States and the world. Trump’s presidency has been marked by his disregard for the rule of law and his willingness to use his power to further his own interests. His policies have had a negative impact on the economy, the environment, and international relations. He has also sought to undermine the credibility of the media, the intelligence community, and the judiciary.
Trump has also sought to divide the country along racial, religious, and political lines. His rhetoric has been divisive and inflammatory, and his actions have been seen as an attack on the values and norms of American democracy. As a result, the United States has become more politically polarized, and the public’s trust in the government has been eroded.
