The elevation of Bannon to head Trump's flagging presidential campaign on August 17, 2016, seemed to signal the meltdown of the Republican Party. Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist despised by Democrats and Republicans alike. Green shows that, to understand Trump's extraordinary rise and Clinton's fall, you have to weave Trump's story together with Bannon's, or else it doesn't make sense.

A short but excellent introduction to the relationship of Steve Bannon and Donald Trump and how it has dominated Trump's beliefs and actions. Bannon brags that his Breitbart website is the platform for the alt-Right. The book explains that Bannon and his web-site convinced Trump that the only way he could win the presidency was to satisfy his base by slamming immigrants, Mexicans, Muslims, Obama and the Clintons. Bannon also convinced Trump that he could solidify his base by stating that the break-up of NATO and the European Union is necessary to help improve their living standard. I would suggest that the potential reader of this book view Breitbart News for a few days and if you agree with Breitbart you should pass on this book.

20170818 Fri - Bannon is terminated. Today is his last day.
Previously he was offered the opportunity to resign.
Bannon refused to resign.
Between then and today, he sought out - not the other way around - The American Prospect's publisher, Robert Kuttner and did a most interesting interview. The American Prospect is a small, liberal/progressive paper.
