Summary The media star and host of MSNBC's Am Joy--called "a heroine of the Resistance" by the New York Times-offers concrete advice and insight for dealing with the outrages of the Trump administration and offers a progressive roadmap to preserve and protect America's future as a beacon of democracy.In this smart, forward-thinking "survival guide," Joy-Ann Reid offers an inspiring vision to help liberals, never-Trumpers, and all concerned citizens endure the presidency of Donald J. Trump and a plan for what follows after he exits the White House.In The Man Who Sold America, Reid analyzes the chaos of the Trump White House and lays out the dangers it poses for our national security, the rule of law, and our standing worldwide. While the GOP has wholeheartedly embraced him as its leader, Trump is actually helping to destroy the Republican party, Reid makes clear. While Trump promised his adoring base that he would "Make America Great Again," he has failed--despite his boasting--to enact many of the signature policy goals he campaigned on, from fully repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act to building a "big, beautiful" border wall and making Mexico pay for it. As troubling as Trump's occupation of the Oval Office is, his election has sparked a wave of enthusiastic citizen participation unseen in decades and has ushered in a new golden age of journalism. Accused of being "the enemy of the American people" and "fake news," today's reporters are rising to the challenges of covering the Trump White House, including the bombardment of lies, prevarications, and "alternative facts." Most important, Reid shows us how to stay strong until the 2020 presidential election. We cannot let anger lead to paralysis, Reid wisely advises. Instead we must pour our efforts into activist causes and building a strong and vibrant Democratic Party that can both defeat Trump and prevent the next candidate in his likeness from rising.The Man Who Sold America is not a polemic; it is an uplifting, action-oriented blueprint essential for these turbulent times that focuses on the decent and the good, reminding us of the principles and ideals that are the foundation of our democracy, and the opportunities we have to make America a better country for all of us.
