In this book (previously published as Crippled America), we're going to look at the state of the world right now. It's a terrible mess, and that's putting it mildly. There has never been a more dangerous time. The politicians and special interests in Washington, DC, are directly responsible for the mess we are in. So why should we continue listening to them?
It's time to bring America back to its rightful owners - the American people.
I'm not going to play the same game politicians have been playing for decades - all talk, no action, while special interests and lobbyists dictate our laws. I am shaking up the establishment on both sides of the political aisle because I can't be bought. I want to bring America back, to make it great and prosperous again, and to be sure we are respected by our allies and feared by our adversaries.
It's time for action. Americans are fed up with politics as usual. And they should be! In this book I outline my vision to make America great again, including how to fix our failing economy; how to reform health care so it is more efficient and cost effective and doesn't alienate both doctors and patients; how to rebuild our military and start winning wars - instead of watching our enemies take over - while keeping our promises to our great veterans; how to ensure that our education system offers the resources that allow our students to compete internationally, so tomorrow's jobseekers have the tools they need to succeed; and how to immediately bring jobs back to America by closing our doors to illegal immigrants and pressuring businesses to produce their goods at home.
This book is my blueprint for how to make America great again. It's not hard. We just need someone with the courage to say what needs to be said. We won't find that in Washington, DC.

An interesting insight into the Trumpster. Understanding his background and ideologies, whilst not excusing some of his more outlandish behaviours, certainly offer a greater understanding of his philosophies and policies.
I'm European, living in Europe. I bought this purely out of interest in US politics.
The European press is as unreliable as the US press in accurately reporting the news. The history of major events was most interesting and Donald Trump has an obviously strong understanding of current affairs.
I have to admit, that I too consider the US to be a "has been" where world powers are concerned.
When this Presidential Election circus started, the worlds' press filled every front page with boring headlines, while one by one, the candidates were ripped to shreds by the press. Wash, rince and repeat.
I switched off.
Then Donald Trump entered the race and the press took out all the stops. The frontpage headlines were horrifying. I noticed that most on Facebook joined in by sharing the memes and headlines from the FB news feed. These same people who shared "tell your kids not to bully" stories and warnings up to that day, were now behaving like arrogent bullys themselves.
However, Trump's popularity kept growing despite the shocking headlines. Something didn't add up.
I ignored the press and started to listen to his full campaign speeches, and a very different picture started to emerge of the man.
That's is the picture you will get in this book.
The no-nonsense plans and ideas are delivered clearly so that anyone can grasp the entire concept.
The relevant history is simply stated and Trump's personal experience which formed the basis for these plans and ideas is related in a matter of fact manner.
Most wealthy "first World countries" would benefit greatly from his commonsense approach to domestic and foreign policy.
The Western world needs the USA, so I seriously hope President Trump succeeds.
The book is a little over four hours long, but it's a short four hours because there isn't one boring sentence in there.
Donald Trump reads only the introduction, and while I appreciate he needs to "speak over the cheering" on a campaign podium, I did find it a find it a tiring style to listen to it directly into my ears.
Then Chapter 1 started, and the narrator took over, and it was a whole new ball game.
Jeremy Lowell was a perfect choice.
The media lied.
Not my usual style of audiobook, but absorbing and every enjoyable.
"Nailed it like his first 100 days in office."
Loved it, now that he's doing what he talked in this book it makes it even better to hear.
"Here it straight from Trump"
It's wonderful to be able hear Trump's perspective on political issues and his blueprint for what he wants to accomplish during his term or terms in Office without having bias media try to propagandize his decisions or views. It's a nice summary but the book is short and doesn't go into too much detail on some topics. Everything from his views on education, climate change, the keystone pipeline, the media, and 2nd amendment, etc. it's all there. Given the time it was written, he mentions hardly anything about crooked Hillary or draining the swamp. Hopefully an updated version of great again comes out to address all the new things that Trump has faced since he became president
"To Michelle Obama"
If you want hope for America, start reading. Barack Hussein Obama should have read President-elect Trump's books. Had he done so he wouldn't be leaving the White House with his tail between his legs. He would have done a decent job and not have to leave the presidency in shame. ENJOY THIS READ. Be happy knowing that soon, America will be great again.
"Trump gives you his plan in his words without spin"
Great book and great plan for making America great again! If nothing else listen to his tax plan, simple and no more loopholes.
"Not worth reading"
Couldn't get through the 2 chapter. I don't recommend this book. Book is filled with simple rhetoric that repeats itself.
"Must read/listen for everyone!!!!!!"
Simple, easy to understand... Clear well presented and inspiring.
No nonsense plan to restore dignity and excellence to Americans.
"Read this to educate yourself"
Narrator sounds like a brain washer. Content of the book will let you know where Trump stand on issues, but it is repetitive and self promotion.
"Not sure about Trump? Read this!"
Not sure about Trump? Read this!
I read it, he is getting my vote.
We deserve better than what we have gotten in the past 30 years.
"Trump save us!"
He's our only hope to save America from flooding illegal immigration, terrorism, and the corrupt criminal who will turn the White House into her husband's brothel and America's assets into a fire sale for her foreign donors.
If you have any doubts about Mr. Trump being our next president this is a must read. I'm a Republican, and for many years I have fallen in line with the party on most everything they promote. However, the political elites of the party have proven over the last eight years how ineffective they can be. It's time for an outsider. Thankfully, the outsider who has decided to step up and lead is a proven business man like Mr. Trump. Don't fall for the media's portrayal of him, their counter argument that he is a racist, sexist, or bigot is destroyed by this book, and Mr. Trump's actions speak louder then the the words of the left.
