Conservative David Frum lodges complaints against Donald Trump that prove almost identical to the criticisms put forth by left-leaning Trump opponents. In this crisp takedown, Frum accuses Trump of endangering US democracy. A former aide to President George W. Bush, Frum sees little to like in Trump’s administration. In Frum’s assessment, Trump enriches himself, flouts decades-old rules against Oval Office nepotism, unfairly marginalizes the media, and lies about anything and everything. While harsh, this reasoned analysis of Trump’s presidency from an unexpected source will intrigue voters and political enthusiasts.
