The instant #1 New York Times i>bestseller. b>
the reporter who was there at the very beginning comes the revealing
inside story of the partnership between 'steve Bannon and Donald
Trump&mdash;the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right, the
fall of Hillary Clinton, and the hidden forces that drove the greatest
upset in American political history.
Based on dozens of
interviews conducted over six years, Green spins the master narrative
of the 2016 campaign from its origins in the far fringes of right-wing
politics and reality television to its culmination inside
Trump&rsquo;s penthouse on election night.
elevation of Bannon to head Trump&rsquo;s flagging presidential
campaign on August 17, 2016, hit political Washington like a
thunderclap and seemed to signal the meltdown of the Republican Party.
Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist who&rsquo;d never run a
campaign and was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike.&#160;
Yet Bannon&rsquo;s hard-edged ethno-nationalism and his
elaborate, years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton paved the way
for Trump&rsquo;s unlikely victory. Trump became the avatar of a
dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to
voters whom others couldn&rsquo;t see.
Trump&rsquo;s campaign was the final phase of a populist
insurgency that had been building up in America for years, and Bannon,
its inscrutable mastermind,&#160;believed it was the culmination of
a hard-right global uprising that would change the world.
study of Trump&rsquo;s rise to the presidency is unavoidably a
study of Bannon. Devil&rsquo;s Bargain i> is a tour-de-force
telling of the remarkable confluence of circumstances that decided the
election, many of them orchestrated by Bannon and his allies, who
really did plot a vast, right-wing conspiracy to stop Clinton. To
understand Trump's extraordinary rise and Clinton&rsquo;s fall, you
have to weave Trump&rsquo;s story together with Bannon&rsquo;s,
or else it doesn't make sense.
