About the book: As the man himself might say, there’s so much to write about! There’s racist Trump, sexist Trump, bankrupt Trump, lying Trump, paranoid Trump, clueless Trump, conman Trump, bullying Trump, and more. Here, in one lovingly researched and slim volume, is Trump stripped bare: the truth behind the glitz. If it sounds frightening, it is: the man who might well be the next President of the United States has the integrity of roadkill.

Never before in American history has anyone quite like Donald Trump gotten so close to the presidency. He’s been called America’s savior, a demagogue, and a potential dictator. Whether or not he is elected this November, it behooves us to know the facts about the man—and yes, there are plenty to be had.

Buy it now—before he sues to cover up Trump Unveiled!
