Synopsis: America’s number one citizen Ralph Nader’s latest
book shows us how unchecked corporate power has led to the wrecking
ball that is the Trump presidency. Nader brings together the outrages
of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous
administrations—both Republican and Democratic—that have
led our nation to its current precipice. It’s all in the details and Ralph
Nader knows them all. Trump didn’t come out of nowhere. Bush and
Obama led the way. Writing as a Washington, DC, activist and people’s
advocate for over fifty years―someone who has saved more lives and
caused more impactful legislation to be enacted than almost any sitting
president or legislator—Nader shows how Trump’s crimes and misdemeanors
followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush and
Clinton regimes, which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power
and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes.
