The true story of what took place in Donald Trump??s White House during a disastrous 2020 has never before been told in full. What was really going on around the president, as the government failed to contain the coronavirus and over half a million Americans perished? Who was influencing Trump after he refused to concede an election he had clearly lost and spread lies about election fraud? To answer these questions, Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig reveal a dysfunctional and bumbling presidency??s inner workings in unprecedented, stunning detail.
 
Focused on Trump and the key players around him??the doctors, generals, senior advisers, and Trump family members?? Rucker and Leonnig provide a forensic account of the most devastating year in a presidency like no other. Their sources were in the room as time and time again Trump put his personal gain ahead of the good of the country. These witnesses to history tell the story of him longing to deploy the military to the streets of American cities to crush the protest movement in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, all to bolster his image of strength ahead of the election. These sources saw firsthand his refusal to take the threat of the coronavirus seriously??even to the point of allowing himself and those around him to be infected. This is a story of a nation sabotaged??economically, medically, and politically??by its own leader, culminating with a groundbreaking, minute-by-minute account of  exactly what went on in the Capitol building on January 6, as Trump??s supporters so easily breached the most sacred halls of American democracy, and how the president reacted. With unparalleled access, Rucker and Leonnig explain and expose exactly who enabled??and who foiled??Trump as he sought desperately to cling to power.

Damn, what a riveting read! ( )

No need to recommend this. It was on my best reads of 2022 list. ( )

Having read multiple books about Trump, along with a handful dealing with the 2016 and 2020 elections, there wasn't anything in these pages that surprised me. Still, what I Alone Can Fix It excels at is detailing the disturbing events that occurred in 2020 with sober and analytical prose. ( )

A good read about Trump's last year in office. Because I follow MSNBC I had heard Philip Rucker speak about a lot of what's in the book. But these books are important so we don't forget! ( )

5781 I Alone Can Fix It Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year, by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker (read 18 Feb 2022) This book relates the events of Trump's year from January 2020 thru Jan 20, 2021, and an interview held in March 2021. It tells of all the bragging misstatements and works up to the scary events of Jan 6, 2021. Since one knows how Jan 6 ended it was not as horrendous reading about it as it was living through it but nevertheless it was tension-ridden even so, realizing how nearly there could have been more injury and death than there was. One could sympathize with those responsible for keeping Congress safe. And after the evildoers were foiled nevertheless so many Republican members voted to reject electoral votes clearly obtained by Biden! ( )

We never anticipated we would write a second book about Donald Trump's time in the White House. (Authors' Note)
On January 20, 2017, Donald John Trump became president, unskilled in the machinery of government and unmoved morally by the calling of the position, but aglow in his unmatched power. (Prologue)
President Trump rang in 2020 at Mar-a-Lago, the landmark mansion in Palm Beach built nearly a century ago by Marjorie Merriweather Post, at his member-only social club's annual New Year's Eve gala.
Seventy days had passed since Donald Trump left Washington against his will. (Epilogue)

On January 20, 2017, Donald John Trump became president, unskilled in the machinery of government and unmoved morally by the calling of the position, but aglow in his unmatched power. The first three years of Trump’s term revealed a presidency of one, in which the universal value was loyalty—not to the country, but to the president himself. Scandal, bluster, and uninhibited chaos reigned. Decisions were driven by a reflexive logic of self-preservation and self-aggrandizement. Delusions born of narcissism and insecurity overtook reality.
He displayed his ignorance, his rash temper, his pettiness and pique, his malice and cruelty, his utter absence of empathy, his narcissism, his transgressive personality, his disloyalty, his sense of victimhood, his addiction to television, his suspicion and silencing of experts, and his deception and lies. Each trait thwarted the response of the world’s most powerful nation to a lethal threat.
Trump’s incessant complaining ran counter to what had long been a core tenet of the Republican Party: personal responsibility. Yet Trump’s strategy of self-victimization yoked him to his supporters, who similarly felt disrespected by elites in Washington and felt wronged by the fast-changing global economy.
Trump, however, principally governed for a minority of the country—his hard-core political supporters—and chose neither to try to unite the nation nor to reimagine a postpandemic America.
“In so many ways, Donald Trump represents the death rattle of an old America, and it’s loud and it’s violent.”
