What the Trump Administration

Is Doing To America





Joy Reid Guest: Trump’s Base “Hate the Civil Rights Movement”

Kirkus Reviews

If there’s such a genre as anti-hagiography, Johnston (The Making of Donald Trump, 2016, etc.) adds materially to it with this new polemic against the sitting president.

Fire and Fury is the book you want to read. "It's Even Worse Than You Think" is the book you need to read.

David Cay Johnston: Trump is determined to provoke war to draw focus from racist & erratic behavior.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

A Brighton journalist and Pulitzer Prize recipient is making headlines — and Amazon's Best Sellers list.


With the release of his new book, It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America on Jan. 16, just days before the first government shutdown under Trump's presidency, David Cay Johnston analyzes what the impact of the Trump administration will be.


This latest work by the investigative journalist and recognized national expert on tax regulations is a follow-up to his 2016 release, The Making of Donald Trump, published shortly after Trump had secured the Republican nomination.


The new book implores people to look beyond day-to-day White House drama and ponder the real-world consequences.


Since its release, the book has climbed as high as second on Amazon's Best Sellers list, sitting just behind Michael Wolff's book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which remains at No. 1.


In a review it published, The Washington Post noted that Johnston is a longtime critic of Trump. And The Washington Times wrote an article earlier this month lumping Johnston's book in with a flurry of "Trump-bashing books" that publishers have been releasing. That same Times article quoted conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh as saying that Trump's administration is one of the most conservative of presidencies, implying that is what is fueling much of the criticism.


The Guardian

Johnston, a journalist who’s tracked Trump for 30 years, analyzes how the current administration is remaking the federal government in Donald’s image and, wait for it, “making America worse again”.
