Summary "A scathing indictment of Donald Trump on the eve of the 2020 election. Un-American? President Donald J. Trump has been called many names, but how can this term apply to a candidate and president whose slogan is "make America great again?" How can such a term apply to the "America First" president? In this book, John J. Pitney Jr., one of America's most incisive conservative commentators exposes a core irony of Trump's presidency: that a man who is quick to question the patriotism of his critics is himself deeply unpatriotic. Pitney argues that real Americanism is about ideas and ideals: truth, equality, the rule of law, patriotic service, and the hope that America can serve as an example to the rest of the world. By words and actions, Trump has disparaged all of these things. Through an examination of his record, this book tells how Trump subverts genuine American greatness." -- Provided by publisher.
