In The American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord reviews a new book, Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency, by former Trump aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie. Lord writes:
President Donald Trump has enemies.
So too has every president had them. But there is something about Trump that has created a veritable hornet’s nest of foaming-at-the-mouth political enemies who are so obsessed with him that they have quite accurately been said to be diseased with “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
In Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency, former Trump aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie pull the curtain back to reveal exactly who the President’s enemies are — and how they go about the business of sabotaging the President they despise
It simply is not possible for Donald Trump to have spent a lifetime overcoming all the odds in business to build his massive, highly successful business enterprise — and then get elected President of the United States over multiples of serious competitors — and not understand that Trump himself is the only boss of himself. He has the vision, he calls the shots, he runs the plays.
To say the least, it is the very considerable success that Donald Trump has had doing this that has brought forth a parade of “Trump’s Enemies.” Filled with an obsessive rage, jealousy in some cases, and the laughable contempt of elites who have nothing to be elite about, those enemies have made it their business (sometimes literally a business) to at first stop a potential Trump presidency and then, once in the White House, to destroy it.
It is astonishing to reflect on the long list of accomplishments of the two-year old Trump presidency — and a detailed list ends the book. Doubtless there will be many more to come.
If anything is crystal clear from reading Trump’s Enemies, Corey Lewandowski and Dave Bossie understand this president completely. But even more to the point, by now they understand who — and why — he has so many enemies. A better roadmap to the carriers of Trump Derangement Syndrome cannot be had.
