A few months ago I read a book called The Case For Trump by Victor Davis Hanson.
Victor Davis Hanson is an American commentator, classicist, and military historian, and has written on warfare and contemporary politics for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Review, The Washington Times and more.
Donald Trump was born in 1946 and is an American businessman and former president of the United States Of America.
He grew up in a wealthy family and received a degree in economics and worked for his father’s real estate company.
Trump gained prominence in the 1980s with the development of Trump Tower in Manhattan and his ownership of various casinos, hotels, and resorts. He branded himself as a successful entrepreneur and became known for his flamboyant lifestyle and self-promotion. Trump also ventured into the entertainment industry as the host of the reality TV show The Apprentice from 2004 to 2015.
In 2016, Trump ran as the Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States.
Despite being initially considered an outsider in the race, he secured the party’s nomination and went on to win the electoral college, defeating Hillary Clinton.
In fact, almost all mainstream media outlets were predicting a Clinton landslide.
A few reasons why Trump’s victory was a surprise are the following.
- Trump had no prior experience in political office.
- Many prominent Republicans, including past presidents and party leaders, openly opposed him.
- The media hated him.
His campaign focused on issues such as immigration, trade, and job creation, resonating with a significant portion of the American electorate.
