Noted Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston proves a harsh critic of President Donald Trump. He asserts, among other things, that Trump profits from his position as president by charging the Secret Service and other federal employees and officials full price to stay at his properties; staffs his administration with unqualified appointees; and has forsaken the working-class voters and retired soldiers he promised to champion. As a reporter, Johnston has scored big scoops, such as securing part of a Trump tax return, and here he contends that Trump committed income tax fraud. He covers important territory, though his strident tone won’t win converts. Trump’s supporters may use it as a reason to think less of this report, but Johnston’s impressive professional record stands behind his in-depth study. While noting that the opinions expressed are the author’s, getAbstract recommends his outraged overview to political enthusiasts.
