Devil's Bargain Joshua Green epub

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller.

From the reporter who was there at the very beginning comes the revealing inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump—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’s penthouse on election night.

The shocking elevation of Bannon to head Trump’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’d never run a campaign and was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike. 

Yet Bannon’s hard-edged ethno-nationalism and his elaborate, years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton paved the way for Trump’s unlikely victory. Trump became the avatar of a dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to voters whom others couldn’t see. Trump’s campaign was the final phase of a populist insurgency that had been building up in America for years, and Bannon, its inscrutable mastermind, believed it was the culmination of a hard-right global uprising that would change the world.

Any study of Trump’s rise to the presidency is unavoidably a study of Bannon. Devil’s Bargain 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’s fall, you have to weave Trump’s story together with Bannon’s, or else it doesn't make sense.

    Steve Bannon and President Trump orchestrated Hillary's downfall?? Lol I think she did that pretty much on her own even with George Soros owned news media covering for her. The Clintons have a larger body count that Al Capon -- She was incompetent-and so morally bereft as to be the real dark side of this coin.

    Couldn't put it down!!! Read this book in one day..... brilliant, fast, easy, well edited concise read. I thought I knew it all but Joshua Green clarified and reinforced how we Americans got where we are today.... with a narcissist, misogynist, homophobic, nationalistic, hateful, lying President who appears to be running our country into a great abyss and embarrassing us on the world stage.......while he is being "run" by the real Svengali and PIG.... Steve Bannon. This is a horrifyingly frightening time in our country and for the world. I am appalled and shocked by what has happened and how!!!! We should all be screaming in the streets and fighting back in any way possible....... this is despicable and deplorable and they must be stopped.
