I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year

We rated this book:


Despite there being yet another picture of the forty-fifth president on the cover of this book––or perhaps because of it––I quickly opened it and began to read yet another startling account of the disaster that was inflicted on our country by Donald J. Trump. This is actually the second book on this subject by the same authors. Their first book, A Very Stable Genius, also highlights Trump’s self-aggrandizement.

However painful it might be to read yet another commentary on his presidency, the writing by these authors is so powerful that the reader is swept along with their story. The day-to-day ignorance and unfitness of the man are startling. The scramble by his sycophants and enablers even more so.

Yes, it makes for painful reading, but a failure to learn from history can be perilous. The most brutal part of their story is, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic that hit during––and perhaps had a more severe than necessary impact because of––his presidency. Trump’s total focus on staying in power at whatever cost while blithely ignoring the transmission and fatal nature of the disease was truly heartless.
