    Inhaltsangabe

    Rage is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.

    Woodward, the number-one international bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes readers into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans.

    In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months - an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door".

    At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president.

    Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making.

    Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents.

    Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film".

    Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right."

    Includes excerpts from Bob Woodward’s interviews with President Donald J. Trump for Rage.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Trump is the first candidate for president to launch an October surprise against himself. It’s as if Nixon sent the Nixon tapes to Woodward in an envelope by FedEx.” (Nick Confessore of the New York Times

    “Woodward’s prose offers readers that delicious, vicarious sense of being an insider, right there in the room with Bob, a witness to presidential sulks and boasts.” (Rosa Brooks, Washington Post

    “Even in a news landscape where it feels like nothing is shocking anymore, the first excerpts from the new Bob Woodward book still landed like a pair of hydrogen bombs.” (Vanity Fair)

    Akribisch, spannend und aufrichtig

    Man spürt die journalistische Integrität aus jedem Satz. Woodward bemüht sich mit spürbarer Anstrengung, Präsident Trump zu verstehen. Anstrengend, weil sich Trump jeglicher Definition eines aufrichtigen, vernünftigen und mitfühlenden Staatsmannes entzieht. Fast könnte er einem leid tun. wenn er dadurch nicht so gefährlich wäre.

    Revealing

    A demanding Woodward book, because of its manifold storyline, but very revealing, due to the author's meticulous first hand interviews. The synopsis of "Fear", "Rage", and the first presidential debate in 2020 draw a compelling picture of the Trump presidency: Its (dis)functional structures, the intentions of key players, its successes and failures, and its center, an idea of the motives of the center of gravity: Donald Trump, himself.
    A must, for your own conclusion: Is Trump fit for the job?
