FIRE+FURY+TRUMP: best book of the year

thedonaldMike Wolff's book Fire and Fury (Little, Brown and Co.) is a detailed document that in Northern Europe would start a process that within a month would see the author or Mr. Trump, in prison, write Jack Soifer.
There were more than 200 interviews with Trump and his advisors, an analysis of his friends' past, the reason for the unexpected victory and the TV show that he loves to host. All recorded, Wolff quotes ipsis literis what was said.
The book confirms on p.19, the one published by Mikael Krogerus and Hannes Grassegger, that billionaire fund operator Bob Mercer offered 50 million and contact with James Nix's Cambridge Analytics to use neuro-marketing, manipulation by TV, at the end of the campaign.
Rebekah Mercer, daughter, in turn became one of the most influential of Trump's economic policy.
P.23: "Charlie Kushner, to whose real estate business interests Trump’s son-in-law and most important aide, was closely tied, had already spent time in a federal prison for tax evasion, witness tampering, and making illegal campaign donations."
In some ways, Trump says and tries to do what many Americans wish. For instance, on p.15:  that China is the country which profits most from the current free trade and that nationalism there resembles that of Hitler in the years 1937-39.
The constant "America first" is what the voter wants to hear. Lies (conscious?) please.
Demanding that all residents be legalised or expelled is good, as the law should be equal for all.
Trump's hatred of the media is understandable. Supported by the largest of fortunes, including Murdoch, the billionaire owner of the largest American newspaper group, he considers data and reflections based on the real world as 'fake'.
"On Feb/03/17 White House arranged ... a Strategic Forum with CEOs of big businesses, Blackstone chief Schwarzman, Uber Travis Kalanick, General Motors' Mary Barra, IBM's Ginni Rometty, Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, Jim McNerney, former CEO of Boeing, and Pepsi's Indra Nooyi"
Trump wanted support from billionaires, such as Peter Thiel of Facebook and co-founder of PayPal, whom he promised, on p.26 "Whatever you want, call me and we'll get it done."
The great need for support for the campaign made him compliment Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, p.37. and bring in as a close advisor the well-known Goldman Sachs lobbyist, Dina Powel, p.72.
P.78: "On Feb/03/17 the White House arranged ... a Strategic Forum. CEOs of big business met with Blackstone boss Schwarzman,  Uber's Travis Kalanick, with Mary Barra of General Motors, Ginni Rometty of IBM, Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, Jim McNerney, former CEO of Boeing, and Pepsi's Indra Nooyi. "
Wolff details the secret meetings with representatives of Putin, the bacchanals, the intrigues in the early months of the Trump administration which results in a constant turnover of close advisors. Not of Dina Powel, of Goldman Sachs and the secret Rebekah Mercer who, in p.120 to 143 in detail have described their way of influencing the economic and external policy of Trump.
There are other books where the author describes Trump as a VIP, or let him influence the content.
This one, citing recorded interviews with hundreds of advisors, provides evidence of what happened in this year and a half.
The best book of last year!
The key question is, how long can Trump stay in power, or will he resign in the face of massive opposition in Congress from November onwards.
