Georgian political figure, Newt Gingrich, who served as 50th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999, is now once again steppiing forward as an author in his newest book ‘Electing Trump.’
As stated on Amazon.com, “New York Times best-selling author and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich takes readers back to the start of the 2016 election, and narrates Donald Trump’s exhilarating run for the presidency in real time. Through excerpts of his interviews and articles, Gingrich explains what the elite media and the Washington establishment failed to recognize – the American voters’ desire for real change that ultimately led to his historic victory.”
The book skyrocketed to number 1 in two Amazon categories related to politics, government and social sciences, and to number 2 Conservatism and Liberalism category.
Gingrich spoke on Fox News and explained how Donald Trump and his candidacy happened exactly and how he managed to win the elections.
“One morning in late January of 2015, Callista and I woke up at the Marriott in Des Moines, Iowa, a hotel where we had spent many nights over the years. This time, we were in town for the Iowa Freedom Summit, the first big event of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. I’d been asked to attend by our friend Dave Bossie, who helped organized the Summit and invited me to speak even though I wasn’t planning to run for president myself.
Sometime that morning, the phone in our hotel room rang. On the other end was Donald Trump. He invited us to meet him for breakfast in the hotel restaurant.
At the time, the media and the Washington political establishment gave almost no thought to Donald Trump. They were certain he wouldn’t enter the race–that his hints about running for president were only a ploy to get attention. As a result, they determinedly ignored him.
Callista and I left breakfast that morning convinced that Trump would run.”
The reason Americ voted in such way, you ask?
“After the American people voted for real change in 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2014, things had gotten worse, not better.
Fifteen years into the 21st century, Americans had suffered through 9/11, two wars without victory, a housing bubble, a financial crisis, a Wall Street bailout, a failed stimulus, a weak recovery, a health care law passed over the strong objections of the public, its disastrous implementation, a lawless administration, and a media elite that was increasingly disdainful of ordinary Americans.
By mid-2015, it had been more than a year since the corruption at the Veterans Administration had come to light. The problems weren’t fixed and no one had been held accountable. The border was not under control (in fact the administration had illegally suspended immigration enforcement), the U.S. had reached a dangerous nuclear deal with Iran, Baltimore was burning, the left was pushing transgender “bathroom bills” in many states and cities, the EPA caused millions of gallons of toxic chemicals to be spilled into the Colorado River, and the stories of Hillary Clinton’s appalling corruption were coming to light.”
As he stated, ‘Electing Trump’, this ebook shares the knowledge of the entire 2016 campaign by showcasing excerpts of his TV commentaries, as well as materials from his columns published twice a week and various interviews.
In the ebook, Gingrich ensures us that, from his point of view, the majority of Americans have realized the same that he did many years back.
That belief is that Real Change always asks for Real Change.
