Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic Book Review

The American democracy, as it has stood for centuries is defined by one statement:

“Of the people, by the people, for the people.”

The problem is that some politicians or those who aspire to become politician sometimes forget that it is voting public who is in charge, not the other way around.

Earlier this year, conservative writer David Frum released his new book, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic. In the book, he describes that since the 2016 Presidential election, the fundamental tenets of American democracy are being undermined. Standard political practices and long-held beliefs about how the country should be run are slowly disappearing, only to be replaced by a President who cares more about his own image than he does the people who voted him into office.

 

Mr. Frum is surprisingly not a liberal. He is a conservative. But he is so clear in this book that Trump, his administration and his cronies are not in office to serve the American people, but to line their pockets.

I absolutely recommend it.
