An examination of Donald J. Trump’s dramatic and unprecedented rise to the U.S. presidency, along with an analysis of the forces—political, cultural, and social—responsible for his winning the White House in 2016. How could someone without a single day of service in government or the military rise to become his nation’s Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief? Did Trump’s background as a business tycoon and real estate developer play a more decisive role than his career as a television reality-show star, or was his media celebrity the principal reason for his electoral success? What does the Trumpian style of governing mean for America, with its system of checks and balances, and for world leadership today?
