Foreword / Eric Trump -- From Queens to the White House -- The four-sided table -- Winning, big league -- The rise of the IYI -- The propaganda media -- Toxic identity politics -- The great transition -- The inaugural -- The permanent opposition -- The safety box ; The American competitiveness box ; The health box ; The making-government-work box -- Bringing Trump to states and communities -- The road ahead -- Appendix I: The intellectual yet idiot from Skin in the game by Nassim Nicholas Taleb -- Appendix II: The speeches of Donald J. Trump.
Summary: The presidency of Donald Trump marks a profound change in the trajectory of American government, politics, and culture. He is the only person ever elected to be commander in chief who has not first held public office or served as a general in the military. His principles grow out of five decades of business and celebrity success -- not politics -- so he behaves differently than do traditional politicians. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich analyzes how President Trump thinks and makes decisions. He also presents Trump-style solutions for national security, education, health care, economic growth, government reform, and other important topics. Gingrich identifies the forces in the Washington establishment, media, and bureaucracy that will oppose the president at every turn. Finally, he explains the president's actions so far and lays out a vision for what Americans can do to help make President Trump's agenda a success.
