Instaread Summary of The Making of Donald Trump by David Cay Johnston
Five out of five stars
This summary demonstrates that the book is a very harsh treatment of Donald Trump, the near contempt that Johnston has for him shines out in every key takeaway. According to Johnston, Trump is a fraud and a failure in nearly everything that he has done, with of course the exception of rising to the top of the presidential ticket of a major party.
To me, the most interesting fact in the summary was the Trump families long association with the infamous lawyer Roy Cohn. Cohn is most known for his association with Senator Joseph McCarthy and the communist witch hunts. Cohn was a combative, unrepentant disturber of the truth, traits that have often been used to describe Trump.
This summary is an item that should be read by all people interested in making the right decision regarding the person to vote for in the 2016 presidential election. Johnston is a skilled investigative journalist and is known for being non-partisan in his reporting. This is a case where if even only a high percentage of what appears in the summary is true, then Trump should not be installed as president.
