Description
In the bestselling tradition of Hillbilly Elegy comes an exploration of the American heartland—a fascinating and eye-opening collection of interviews and stories about the powerful grassroots populist movement of frustrated Americans left behind by the government that changed the landscape of political campaigns forever.Political writer and official RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany spent months traveling throughout the United States conducting interviews with Americans, whose powerful and moving stories were forgotten or intentionally ignored by our leaders. Through candid, one-on-one conversations, they discussed their deeply personal stories and the issues that are most important to them, such as illegal immigration, safety from terrorist attacks, and religious freedom. The New American Revolution chronicles both the losses of these grassroots voters, as well as their ultimate victory in November 2016. Kayleigh also includes interviews with key figures within President Trump’s administration—including Ivanka Trump, Secretary Ben Carson, Jared Kushner, and many more—and their experiences on the road leading up to President Trump’s historic win. Kayleigh’s journey takes her from a family cabin in Ohio to the empty factories in Flint, Michigan, from sunny Florida to a Texas BBQ joint—and, of course, ends up at the White House. The collective grievance of the American electorate reveals a deep divide between leaders and citizens. During a time of stark political division, Kayleigh discovers a personal unity and common thread of humanity that binds us nevertheless. Through faith in God and unimaginable strength, these forgotten men and women have overcome, even when their leaders turned their heads. The New American Revolution is an insightful book about the triumph of this powerful movement and a potent testament to the importance of their voice.

display_description "The November 2016 election changed everything. Experts were left astonished by Donald Trump's victory, coming--seemingly--out of nowhere. But in many parts of America, there was a very different feeling: one of relief and of vindication. Real Americans finally felt that their voices had been heard. [This book] is RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany's journey to listen to those frustrated people who were left behind by Washington, DC, and who formed the populist movement that would lead to President Trump's historic win. To tell their stories, she traveled from a family cabin in Ohio to the church-dotted back roads of South Carolina, from sunny Florida to a Texas BBQ joint--and, of course, eventually to the White House. This exploration of the American heartland provides a fascinating and eye-opening account of the powerful grassroots movement that changed the landscape of political campaigns forever. These salt-of-the-earth people share their deeply personal tales and the issues that are most important to them, such as illegal immigration, safety from terrorist attacks, and religious freedom. Kayleigh also features interviews with key political figures--including Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Lara Trump, Governor Mike Huckabee, Secretary Ben Carson, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and many more--and their experiences on the road leading up to President Trump's historic win. During a time of stark political division, Kayleigh discovers the common thread of humanity that binds us. Through faith in God and unimaginable strength, these forgotten men and women have overcome, even when their leaders turned their heads."--Dust jacket.
