Instant #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller

From the Washington Post journalists Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Palettathe definitive account of the Trump administration's tragic mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the chaos, incompetence, and craven politicization that has led to more than a half million American deaths and counting.

Since the day Donald Trump was elected, his critics warned that an unexpected crisis would test the former reality-television hostand they predicted that the president would prove unable to meet the moment. In 2020, that crisis came to pass, with the outcomes more devastating and consequential than anyone dared to imagine. Nightmare Scenario is the complete story of Donald Trump's handlingand mishandlingof the COVID-19 catastrophe, during the period of January 2020 up to Election Day that year. Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta take us deep inside the White House, from the Situation Room to the Oval Office, to show how the members of the administration launched an all-out war against the health agencies, doctors, and scientific communities, all in their futile attempts to wish away the worst global pandemic in a century.

From the initial discovery of this new coronavirus, President Trump refused to take responsibility, disputed the recommendations of his own pandemic task force, claimed the virus would "just disappear," mocked advocates for safe-health practices, and encouraged his base and the entire GOP to ignore or rescind public health safety measures. Abutaleb and Paletta reveal the numerous times officials tried to dissuade Trump from following his worst impulses as he defied recommendations from the experts and even members of his own administration. And they show how the petty backstabbing and rivalries among cabinet members, staff, and aides created a toxic environment of blame, sycophancy, and political pressure that did profound damage to the public health institutions that Americans needed the most during this time. Even after an outbreak in the fall that swept through the White House and infected Trump himself, he remained defiant in his approach to the virus, very likely costing him his own reelection.

Based on exhaustive reporting and hundreds of hours of interviews from inside the disaster zone at all levels of authority, Nightmare Scenario is a riveting account of how the United States government failed its people as never before, a tragedy whose devastating aftershocks will linger and be felt by generations to come.

Having chosen this book as the place where I begin to look at the instant examinations of Donald Trump's disastrous final year in office, what the authors do very well is to document the internecine fight between the medical leadership that tried to craft a coherent response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the political appointees trying to get a response that would allow them to keep influence with the Oval Office, and the efforts of Trump's immediate circle to provide Mr. Trump with what he mostly wanted; a way to make COVID magically disappear. File under: First draft of history. ( )

When in the distant future some robatic historian does an autopsy of the U.S. government's response to the covid 19 pandemic in search of the cold truth, she may use Abutaleb's Nightmare Scenario as a secondary source. It is certainly well enough documented and clearly enough articulated to be useful. It is, however, not cold truth but a warmly passionate and carefully crafted but admittedly slanted study of the Trump administration's handling of the disaster.
It should also be required reading for anyone taking polysci 201.

A well-informed accounting of the nation under siege.

This is a book that was written with speed and diligence. Whether it will appeal to you depends on how enticed you feel by the authors’ promise to delve into “the decisions, meetings and moments that shaped one of the worst years in U.S. history” and “to document it all.”

The book offers new insights about Trump as the president careened between embracing miracle coronavirus cures in his quest for good news, grappling with his own illness — which was far more serious than officials acknowledged — and fretting about the outbreak’s implications for his reelection bid.
