Podcast Episode #18: Conrad Black Interview: 12 Things You Didn’t Know About Trump

Media tycoon Conrad Black discusses his new book, Donald Trump: A President Like No Other, his friendship with him, and explains how Trump’s financial failings forged a president.  Each of the 12 chapters from his book tells a story about the current president and what made him the man he is today.

Bestselling presidential historian Conrad Black (Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom and Richard M. Nixon: A Life in Full) has negotiated with Trump in business; he knows him as a perceptive, thoughtful, and amusing friend; and, as a presidential biographer, Black can place Trump in historical context and much needed perspective.

The Trump he knows, and the Trump he portrays in his important new book Donald Trump: A President Like No Other is quite different from the media image of Trump.

Yes, says Black, Trump can be the consummate showman.  Yes, Trump believes in “truthful hyperbole.  And yes, few would have pegged Trump as a future president. But, as Black points out, that ambition had been building for a long time. Trump diagnosed what America’s ruling elite, in its arrogance, had ignored for more than twenty years—that it had mismanaged America’s affairs for the benefit of the few, the well-connected, and privileged identity groups, and not for the American people as a whole.

Trump’s vow to make America great again was a sincere call for renewal. Amid the most hostile political climate since the Civil War, Trump has, against all odds, proved himself, by Black’s estimation, a successful, tenacious, and even visionary citizen-statesmen.
