"A portrait of the man who - despite broad skepticism - could be the next president of the United States. Despite decades of scrutiny, many aspects of Donald Trump's life are not well known. To discover Trump in full, The Washington Post assembled a team of award-winning reporters and researchers to delve into every aspect of Trump's improbable life, from his privileged upbringing in Queens to his astonishing 2016 rise to seize the Republican candidacy for president. This book documents Trump's fascinating family roots, his aggressive efforts to make a name for himself in New York social circles, and his penchant for big bets - on real estate, branded businesses, and, ultimately, on himself. The authors scrutinize everything from his youthful alliance with the power broker Roy Cohn to his alleged dealings with organized crime and his controversial projects in New York City, Atlantic City, Florida, Scotland, and Azerbaijan. The authors examine Trump's wealth, the evolution of his political beliefs, and his peculiar identity as a billionaire businessman, celebrity, global brand, television star, and now candidate for the most powerful office in the world"--Provided by publisher.
