Book Review by Kam Williams

“I wrote this book because the country I love is a total economic disaster right now… Every day in business, I see America getting ripped off and abused. We have become a laughingstock, the world’s whipping boy, blamed for everything, credited for nothing, given no respect…

To take one example, China is bilking us for hundreds of billions of dollars by manipulating and devaluing its currency… The Chinese… are hell bent on bankrupting our nation, stealing our jobs, spying on us to steal our technology, undermining our currency, and ruining our way of life.

If we’re going to make America #1 again, we’ve got to have a president who knows how to get tough with China… We need a president who knows how to get things done, who can keep America strong, safe and free, and who can negotiate deals that benefit America, not the countries on the other side of the table…

America can do better… That’s why I decided to write this book… I have answers for the problems that confront us… Let’s make America great again!”

Excerpted from Chapter One (pages 1-8)

Who knew that when Donald Trump threw his hair into the ring, that the bombastic billionaire would not only suck all the air out of the room by monopolizing the news cycle 24/7, but become the prohibitive favorite to win the Republican nomination? If you haven’t made your mind up about who has got your  vote, or if you just can’t get enough of Trump, you might want to check out Time to Get Tough: Make America Great Again, his basic blueprint for overhauling the country.

The book isn’t exactly new, but rather an update of the best-seller of the same name published in 2011. It reads like a fleshed-out version of the stump speech Trump’s been delivering extemporaneously all across the country. And it’s quite refreshing to hear him stick to the issues without taking potshots at a fellow candidate’s looks, energy level or poll numbers.   

The chapter headings, ranging from “Take the Oil” to “Tax China to Save Jobs” to “Repeal Obamacare” to “It’s Called Illegal Immigration for a Reason,” give you a good idea which of his favorite topics he’s about to launch into. For instance, in the one about immigration he touts a 5-point plan which includes building a 20′ high wall.

In fact, he advocates erecting “three walls separated by 75-yard no man’s lands for border agents to zoom up and down in vehicles.” He also suggests using “cameras, radio systems, radar and pole-topped lights,” to boot.  Besides the Trump position papers, the strategically re-released tome features photos of the author with his family and luminaries like Ronald Reagan, Sarah Palin, Joan Rivers and televangelist Joel Osteen. Oh, plus shots of Trump skyscrapers and golf courses.

The unapologetically right-wing, political platform of the narcissistic counterpuncher who would be president.
