Regarded as a champion for the common man by some and an autocratic villain by others, there is little debate that Donald Trump’s presidency was riddled with controversy and turmoil. Drawing from exclusive access to cabinet officers, military generals, close advisers, Trump family members, congressional leaders, foreign officials, and 45th president himself, two revered journalists reveal the inner workings of the Trump White House and explore the moral choices confronting those around the president.
Peter Baker is the chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. Susan Glasser is a staff writer at the New Yorker. They are co-authors of The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017–2021. Douglas Brinkley (moderator) serves as presidential historian for the New-York Historical Society and is a frequent contributor on presidential history for CNN, MSNBC, and CBS.
