Running Against the Devil: A Plot to Save America from Trump–and Democrats from Themselves

We rated this book:


Former Republican Rick Wilson unleashes his intelligence and ire on the current president of the United States and offers a plan to save the country, as well as his former rival political party, in his latest book, Running with the Devil: A Plot to Save America from Trump–and the Democrats from Themselves.

Chock full of statistics to support his positions and tweets from the president, Wilson lays out the case that Trump is not only unqualified but an absolute threat to the country. As a former Republican, he is not the voice that most left-wing, liberal Democrats would initially put stock in, and he acknowledges this. In his own words, he “treats the Democrats like a client” and attempts to point out their own weaknesses in an effort to illustrate how they can win in 2020.

Wilson spends a great deal of time on the myths of the Democratic Party and the strengths of Trump’s campaign and presidency, as perceived by Trump’s base. He abhors Trump, so don’t read this book if you own a MAGA hat or support the president; you’ll only get angry. But DO read it if you are interested in how the White House can be returned to someone fundamentally decent, a trait that Wilson full-throatedly argues Trump lacks.
