Overview

No one understands the Make America Great Again effort with more insight and more experience than former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich was an ally of President Ronald Reagan during his 1980 Let's Make America Great Again campaign. In 1994, Newt was the architect of the Contract with America and the campaign that ended 40 years of Democratic control in the House of Representatives. As a friend and supporter of President Donald Trump, Gingrich authored the #1 New York Times bestseller Understanding Trump, which explained the 2016 election and the early Trump presidency in ways no one else could.

In UNDERSTANDING THE AGE OF TRUMP, Gingrich describes the enormous struggle in our nation today between those who want to make America great again and those who want to make America a radically different country.

The Americans who elected President Trump expect him to make good on his iconic call to restore and renew our country's strength and standing as the world's dominant superpower. So far, he is making good on his promise. The swamp is being drained, the judiciary is being restored, the economy is growing rapidly, unemployment is in decline, and America's position and influence in the world is improving daily.

Meanwhile, Trump's opponents in Washington and the media are lashing out because they can't reconcile how the President they deeply oppose is succeeding.

Gingrich understands the challenges faced by the White House staff, the role fake news plays in modern politics, and the ropes of legislative infighting in Congress. Understanding the Age of Trump is the inside story as no one else could describe it.
