I've known Roger Stone all his professional life. Remember, everything Roger says is a lie. Don't buy this book and support this scum.

Amazing read! This book's reviews here on B&N were being held back initially. So do yourself a favor, buy it from Infowars and get it'll be a signed copy, and you support the REAL Media that helped Trump get elected when the powerful Fake News was against him from the start.

This is an important book written by Roger Stone -- a seasoned (famous/infamous) political operative and a long-time trusted Trump adviser. If you want to understand how Trump thinks, how he calculates politically, you MUST read ROGER STONE's book. MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 2016 is also very entertaining -- Roger Stone relates his time with Trump over decades, recalling conversations and previous Trump presidential campaigns -- even how one day he saved Donald Trump's life. Stone gives you an INSIDER'S VIEW of Trump's campaign -- from Trump's announcement of his candidacy until election night 2016, when Trump finally achieved the presidency he has sought since the 1990s. The book also presents a brilliant analysis of Hillary Clinton and her campaign, and the "Silent Majority" ignored by Hollywood and the mainstream media elites in LA and NYC that elected Trump. If you want to understand why and how HILLARY LOST, the strategy Stone implemented DAY ONE to get Trump into the White House. The truth is Roger Stone never quit supporting Trump -- even when he officially left the campaign. Handing the position of campaign manager to others, Stone strategically positioned himself as "an outsider," much as Trump positioned himself as an "outsider." Stone calculated the move to give him more leverage over the media -- while remaining in constant touch with Trump and key officers in Trump's campaign -- including Paul Manafort -- Stone's long-time political consulting partner. Using the MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT format Theodore H. White made famous, STONE takes the reader through the campaign -- from the primaries, through the presidential debates, and the closing rallies -- weaving a chronological commentary peppered with insightful insights. I truly enjoyed this book and I recommend it to you enthusiastically. If you want to understand modern presidential politics, I strongly urge you to read Roger Stone's MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 2016.

The subtitle to this screed ought to read: How A Pathological, Lying Narcissist Deceived His Way Into the White House. Even people who were tricked into voting for this dangerous clown are beginning to fear the creature they helped create, and then awarded him a position for which he is utterly unqualified and not only woefully unfit, but wholly unworthy. Anyone who voted for Trump (I cannot call him "President", he so demeans the office) owes a MAJOR mea culpa to the United States--not to mention the rest of the world, to whom we are rapidly becoming a horrifying example of how terribly wrong democracy can go. I love my country and I am appalled that my fellow citizens could fall for a would-be dictator. I thought this only happened in Third World nations that knew nothing other than "Strong-Man" bullies-in-chief. I never thought I would see it in my own country. For the first time in my life, I am ashamed to admit I'm an American. I will always be a patriot--it's just so tragic so many of my fellow Americans fell for this blowhard's meanness and deceptions.
