Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the US House of Representatives, explains why Donald Trump appeals to US voters and why he is an effective president. Americans like Trump, Gingrich argues, because Trump is a burger-and-fries guy like them. An openly biased reporter, Gingrich argues that the usual complaints about Trump aren’t really about the president himself. They concern the myopic worldviews of the left-wing media and the sclerotic Washington bureaucracy. Readers who don’t share Gingrich’s views may find it difficult to accept his account. Gingrich sees hope and unity in Trump’s speeches, which others view as dark and divisive. While always politically neutral, getAbstract finds that Gingrich offers a useful tour of the mind-set that brought Trump to the White House.
